March Test Automation Meetup

March 9, 2016 Butch M.

The Birmingham Test Automation group had a great meetup here at the Daxko HQ last week. Jeremy P. and I shared how we use Ruby in test automation at Daxko. We showed how we’re using UI automation tests with Watir WebDriver and the Page Object Gem in conjunction with a custom built gem named the DataFactory. The Watir and Page Object gems are used to drive the web browser, while the DataFactory is used to talk to our databases to create, validate, and destroy the test data used for each test. We also gave an overview of the automation standards we have put in place such as:

  • ‘Every test should be self reliant and able to run independently’
  • ‘Use the DataFactory > UI for expectations and assertions’

If you’re interested in learning more about test automation, join us for our April meetup on Tuesday, 4/5 at Healthsouth. For more information, click here.
