Please join our very special guest on 12th August, Titus Fortner, Senior Solution Architect at Sauce Labs.

Titus is a Selenium Core contributor as well as the lead for the Watir project. He'll be sharing some strong opinions on Page Objects and brings a wealth of experience in writing good test automation.

About the talk
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------
Although Page Objects enable newer users to write sophisticated tests against an application, Titus has found that the Page Object Pattern is often misused. As Titus says: "There are lots of different ideas on what makes a good implementation, and I’ve actually tried most of them at one point or another and have personal experience that informs my recommendations of certain approaches over others,” he said. “Smart people disagree with me on some of these, and my goal is to present both sides while explaining the reasons for the preferences I have.”
