Effectively test your webapp with Python and Selenium

Description

Andrei Coman - Effectively test your webapp with Python and Selenium [EuroPython 2016] [18 July 2016] [Bilbao, Euskadi, Spain] (https://ep2016.europython.eu//conference/talks/effectively-test-your-webapp-with-python-and-selenium)

We will explore the lessons learned on maintaining a Selenium test suite against a webapplication and how to leverage python tools to make this process easy and transparent.


How often do you run your Selenium test suite? How fast do you get a result from it? Would you like to answer with: "Whenever I feel like it" and "Well, about the time it takes me to finish a coffee" ? This talk will try to get you closer to these answers.

We will have a look at the lessons learned and the challenges my team faced maintaining a Selenium test suite against a long-lived Django web application.

We will go over the pros and cons of:

  • test design approaches
  • technologies we used (nose, py.test, LiveServerTestCase)
  • reporting tools
