We will use a platform call Canvas where we will try to automate certain tasks to be able to reduce the time that a regular user spends by using this platform. The tools & technologies that we will be using is Node.js and Cypress.

About this event

We will use a platform call Canvas to automate certain tasks and functions to make sure we help Teachers, Students, and Admins to know how to navigate through Canvas. The main idea is that we learn how to use cypress and that we learn how to do some manual and automation within these tools.

Sometimes we have to troubleshoot bigger issues, and we have to create content to be able to have test data, sometimes we would like to add more people to the platform, add more tasks, etc. The concept here is that automating multiple tasks could be great to reduce the amount of time you spend in front of a computer.

Also, we will talk about how you can start in the tech field by being a manual tester, QA, or automation engineer, and what you need to get into these positions or if you already in the field, we can explain what else you need to improve your skills and to be able to take a step-up into your career.
