What we're about

Let's talk Test! This group provide a meeting place and regular events in Cardiff for anyone involved in Test or QA. Come to meet fellow testers, share stories and experiences about tools and techniques which may, or may not, have solved testing problems. This is a place of learning, where live demonstrations of tools will be given and knowledge shared with hands-on exercises.

The group is open to all, whatever your skillset or level of experience. It's a great way to get to know other people and learn something new. We want to be able to provide a place to enable people to share their knowledge. The group will be able to decide what is presented, whether it be using Selenium to transform your test automation, solving cross device and browser testing problems, rolling out structured approaches to exploratory testing; come, join the group and participate.

Looking forward to seeing you on the other side!

#Bug 16 - Lets talk about Playwright!

Online event

We are back for 2022 and what we hope will be the last online meetup before we get a chance to meet in person again 🍕🍺

We are kicking off the New Year with a meetup based around Playwright as well as another Amazon voucher giveaway courtesy of the folk at SR2 - Socially Responsible Recruitment.

In case you aren’t aware, it's the new kid on the block when it comes to the world of Automation Testing!

For as long as I can remember, Selenium had been the most prominent automation tool for testing and automation, but, as the web transformed, quality standards raised a new generation of frameworks emerged. Recently, we have seen a shift to tools like Cypress, and, in recent times I’ve seen more and more companies switching to Playwright! Created by Microsoft, Playwright is an open source browser automation framework that allows you to automate tests in Chromium, Webkit, and Firefox browsers

So,what exactly is it, why might you choose to use it and how can you get started?

We welcome two awesome speakers to tell us all we need to know!

Shrikant Nanda – An Introduction to Playwright
What is Playwright and why we chose to use it. In this talk Shrikant will talk us through what Playwright is and why his company chose to use it over other tools.

Chris Usher – “Zero* to Hero with Playwright in GitHub Actions”

Chris is a long time attendee of Test Talks Wales a, so it is great to welcome him to our speaker family. Chris is going to talk us through getting started with Playwright and getting a first test running in CI.

The meetup will be hosted on Crowdcast, and a link will be shared nearer the time.
If you aren't already part of the Test Talks Wales slack community, don't forget to join our group for in-between meetup chat 💬
