Sam Edwards: Maintainable Espresso Tests with Robots and Screenshots
Do your product owners, designers, and stakeholders understand the full value of your Espresso tests? Sam Edwards, a Google Developer Expert for Android & Kotlin, will show you how his team architected the Espresso test setup for some of his Android projects at Capital One. This includes ongoing continuous integration efforts that lead to speed improvements, more maintainable tests, and organizational-wide visibility into test results.
* Explain how to setup your Espresso tests to take programmatic screenshots, and leverage the Robot pattern of testing for clean, readable, and maintainable tests
* Give guidelines on when it's appropriate to write Espresso tests instead of Robolectric or Unit tests
* Explain how to leverage mock data to make your Espresso tests run with deterministic results, at top speed
* Share tips on making your testing efforts valuable to your entire organization
