This post is about why we moved from Software Testing Club to Testival meetup group. Main theme of meetup was browser automation.
First of all, I would like to thank Rosie Sherry that have let us to use Software Testing Club meetup group for Zagreb meetups for six years.
Software Testing Club changed in a good way in this six years. Zeljko and I also did not know the real purpose of meetup, and that is building of local community. Testival meetup group will definitely change that, because now we have free meetup local visibility. As proof of concept, this time we had 20+ attendants, which was much more than usual.
Our host and sponsor was Repsly in HUB385 startup coworking place. Great venue. On meetup, we had two talks.
Kresimir Linke from Replsy had talk: Test Automation of Push notifications using Ranorex.
He also demonstrated one complex end to end scenario that involved several users, web browser and two mobile devices. All automated using Ranorex tool.
Second talk was from Ana Prpic: Introduction to WebDriver IO.
Meetup was visited by NSoft software testers. They are from Mostar and we discussed with the how to start software tester community in their town.
My meetup takeaways:
- cast device software for presenting mobile device screen
- how to test email gui
- html id attribute and security compliance
- webdrivercss library for visual comparing
- circleci can run selenium tests in headless mode
After that, Zeljko presented 5 minutes talk format, with his talk:
Why you should not attend testing conferences?
Another talk was about software testing pyramid and I talked about open session conferences (Testival as example.)
