Watir (pronounced like 'water’) is an acronym for Web Application Testing In Ruby.

It is the simplest and easiest way to write functional user interface tests, and can automate almost any browser task.

Because it is implemented with the Selenium Library it can be used with all of the major browsers on all of the major operating systems to interact with anything rendered in your browser, local or remote. We’ll go through the easy setup process, create a basic test suite, and go through the basic features that let you drive around a website to write your tests.

You’ll leave this session with the beginnings of your own test suite, and the tools to write the basic tests for your own website.

Titus Fortner has been writing tests in Ruby for four years. He is the maintainer of the Ruby bindings in Selenium, and the lead developer of the Watir project. He’s committed to open source development and making it easier to facilitate delivering quality software. He's currently writing cutting edge test suites for The Honest Company.
