Title: Automation


10:15 - 10:30 - Introduction

10:30 - 11:15 - Building and maintaining a self-developed test-suite by Praveen

The takeaway would be:

- How to decouple test libraries and test-code for minimal impact when a product is under development

- Extending existing libraries to build test-friendly wrappers. Example: HTTP clients (like requests) and validate responses automatically etc. Similar principles for UI.

-How to modularize and test the test libraries themselves. How to maintain them in the long run.

* Mocking test environments for CI, Docker, bare metal etc.
