Bartek is a testing expert with over 9 years of experience, who is
supporting project teams at Objectivity since 2013. Bartek specializes
in testing both: web-based and desktop applications. His technical
skills are proven i.a. by ISTQB Advanced Level Test Manager, but it's
Bartek's interpersonal competences that make him a representative of the
team responsible for contacts with the client. In this role Bartek is
responsible for arranging tester processes, offsetting of clients and
team needs according to Win-Win, which is the business philosophy of
Objectivity. As Bartek says himself - Quality Engineering is more than a
job: it's passion. You could see it if you visited his house that is
full of technical toys - which Bartek officially uses for testing
purposes. This is at least what he tells his wife when she complains
about a new gadget. All has to be tested, right?
How to automate visual testing of Web Applications - look & feel
My overarching goal is to demonstrate how we can use Visual Testing to improve the quality of applications and to reduce the time spent on manual review of an interface’s appearance. Using Visual Testing with functional tests (e.g. Selenium WebDriver) gives us a very good picture not only of an application’s behaviour but also of its appearance and how it evolves over time. These tests can be implemented in Continuous Integration along with other test groups (functional, non-functional), which gives us the potential for quick verification and reaction to very small, even imperceptible changes in the user interface. Another benefit is that the tools present in a very clear and direct manner the areas that have changed or moved in reference to our base image. The objective of my presentation is to interest the audience in the subject of Visual Testing and to encourage it to introduce these tests in their project.
