When a site can be viewed in a range of browsers, languages, and different branded skins (which may have slight variations in layout or business logic), there can be thousands of testable combinations. How do you describe these combinations, queue them for execution, and link them to test results in your continuous integration server? How do you design it to be extensible and maintainable?
In this meetup, David Drake will discuss techniques for combinatorial testing with Selenium and JUnit leveraging on-demand resources from Sauce Labs, describing successes and challenges encountered along the way. In this talk he'll draw from concrete problems encountered in Selenium framework design for Intercontinental Hotel Group and performance testing at Nintendo of America.
David Drake is a lead SDET with nine years of experience in testing and automation, currently working at Dynacron Group, a Seattle consulting company. He maintains their parallel-webtest library for driving tests through Sauce Labs, and spends most of his time designing and using frameworks for performance and functional regression testing.
