18:30 - Quick Intro

18:35 - Talk One

"Our journey of choosing the right UI automation tool" - By Gianni Au and Kalyan Kamkipati

As our UI for the systems we have developed has moved from a more MVC based framework to a more angular based framework, we wanted to choose an appropriate tool for our UI automation suite. The talk will take you through a journey of how we went about doing this. We'll be talking about the different criteria that we used, through to the tests that we wrote to arrive at our conclusion. We'll be focussing on cypress, puppeteer, protractor and testcafe.

19:00 - Short Break

19:05 - Talk Two

Ciara Gardiner and Frances Bromley will present their exploration into the use of cloud, continuous integration and performance tools and technologies. They will focus on how the use of these tools has helped them, to explore the performance of the DataHelix, which is a Scott Logic developed, data generation tool.

Ciara is a graduate tester at Scott Logic, following a degree in computer science where she first began exploring verification and validation techniques. Ciara is currently mid-way through grad training at Scott Logic and is naturally using this time to explore as many technologies and techniques as possible! She is currently working in Cypress, Postman and getting involved in some Exploratory testing exercises.

Frances is currently working as a Test Engineer and will soon complete her first year at Scott Logic, having started as a graduate last year. She is keen to explore all avenues of testing and is very interested in how tools and technology can help provide neat, maintainable and pragmatic testing solutions
