So you think you want to build a framework

"I would guess that the majority of people start out with automation thinking that you just need to decide on a library [like Selenium] and they're done. Except, its not that simple. Have you thought about a Runner? A collection strategy? Getting [useful] reports? That your CI server knows how to read? By the time you realize you have had to think about these /and implement them/ it is too late and your solution ends up being, at best, a hack.

"In this talk I'll itemize the things that I have learned while building out automation frameworks over the last decade. Whether you have already built a framework or are on the cusp of starting one, this talk should give you plenty of things to start experimenting with tomorrow."

Drinks and refreshments will be served.
