#CPSATDAY – how is it helping the testing community move into selenium automation

CP-SAT day mission is to help a non-coder/ a manual testing engineer to learn and start swimming into automation world




The basic agenda  – which is completely hands on involves the following

  1. Java and eclipse setup/readiness
  2. Firefox and chrome setup
  3. Selenium webdriver jar file integration and running the first selenium program
    • Understanding By – locators
    • Understanding WebElements
    • Understanding actions on WebElements
  4. Exercise is given to participants to implement their own program, after working with a sample in 3 above
  5. Look and setup junit integration with eclipse
  6. Running the two examples with junit
  7. Test NG setup and integration
  8. Running the already created examples with Test NG
  9. If time permits
    • Running suite from junit
    • Running suite from Test NG
    • Parameter passing from Test NG

The agenda has been designed such that all the participants get their environment setup, post this it is extremely easy for them to understand and implement more sample code. The biggest advantage is that all those who are afraid of coding and automation get this fear out of their systems.

In the new changing world, testers need to add technical skills to their skill set. The program helps achieve this by setting a foundation for everyone to start learning and practice more.
