Title: Models of Automation: Two Paradigms


Much of the testing world sees test automation through a common lens, a common mental model. This is the paradigm of the assembly line robot: deterministic, mechanical actions repeated time and again. Whilst this model may have its uses, as with all models, it also has its failings: ways in which it constrains how we think about testing problems.

There is another paradigm, an older one perhaps: that of the scientific instrument, that of tools which enhance the senses or allow us to manipulate the world in ways that, unassisted, would be impossible.

Join me in this exploration of experimentation: learn how barometers, Bunsen burners and genetic sequencers mightshape how you think about and use tools, and how that might shape your testing.

7:00 - 7:30 - Rashmi Ranjan Panigrahi

Title: Automating Google Analytics tracking with Selenium and Browsermob-proxy


Ever wondered how to test Google Analytics in-page tracking on your website end-to-end? No problem at all - this is quite easily done by programmatically analysing network traffic using a HTTP proxy server like Browsermob-proxy. What's more, testing the Selenium way means you can achieve cross-browser analytics testing effortlessly!

7:30 - 8:00 - Networking

Sounds good? Hope to see you soon.
