About this event

Test automation is a buzzword flying around for some time. More and more teams try to involve it in their processes. The ones who write these are often testers, which grow into this role. Naturally, their coding knowledge is not as in-depth compared to a seasoned software engineer. Additionally, tutorials on the internet are also surprisingly simple.
In this talk, Sven wants to walk you through the creation of a test automation framework and give you some insights on the different patterns they usually use.
They will provide several examples of how to create a sustainable and extensible suite which can be then maintained by your teams. They will show some snippets in Kotlin, which have been created for a simple Android Application.

This event will take place online. The link will be provided on the day.
