Last week, I had the pleasure of being able to give a talk on 'BDD, ATDD and Page Objects' at the Agile Testing & BDD Exchange run by the awesome folks at Skills Matter. The topic of the talk is summed up here:
In this presentation John Ferguson Smart discusses several case studies of automating web testing using BDD and ATDD tools and techniques. In particular, he will discuss an approach where developers wrote reusable web testing components that could be used both for their own technical tests, but also by QA to automated higher-level, end-to-end, ATDD-style tests. Using the Page Objects pattern with WebDriver, Groovy and easyb, developers where able to capitalize on testing efforts, and make it easier for both developers and testers to share and reuse the same web testing components, each for their own related but quite different testing needs.
You can see the video of the talk on the Skills Matter website . And you can view (and download) the slides here:
And just a reminder that I will be running the Java Power Tools Bootcamp in London again on January 24-28.
