VENUE: Ideas to Impacts, Baner

Meetup Begins in


Session #1: Understanding the Blockchain Ecosystem: Web3, Metaverse, Smart Contracts, and Testing Essentials.

In this session, you will delve into the exciting world of blockchain, web3, metaverse, and smart contracts. You’ll learn the basics of how blockchain technology works and how it is being used in a variety of industries. You’ll also discover the power of web3 and how it is enabling decentralized applications (dApps) to be built on top of blockchain networks.

Next you’ll delve into the world of smart contracts, which are self-executing contracts with the terms of the agreement between buyer and seller being directly written into lines of code. You’ll learn how to create and deploy your own smart contracts and how to test them to ensure they are functioning as intended.

Finally, you’ll delve deeper , you’ll explore the concept of the metaverse, a virtual world where users can interact with each other and with digital assets in a decentralized manner. You’ll understand about the various use cases for the metaverse and how it is being used to create immersive virtual experiences.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understanding Blockchain Ecosystem
  • SmartContracts and how to develop and Test.
  • Web3 and Metaverse Concept.
  • Demo of Web3 Application and Smart Contract Testing.

Session #2: Eradicate Flaky Tests

Have you heard of “flaky tests”?

Many articles, blog posts, podcasts, and conference talks about what are “Flaky tests” and how to avoid them.

Some of the ideas proposed are:

  • Automatically rerun failed tests a couple of times, and hope they pass
  • Automatically retry certain operations in the test (ex: retry click/checking for visibility of elements, etc.) and hope the test can proceed

Unfortunately, I do not agree with the above ideas, and I would term these as anti-patterns for fixing flaky/intermittent tests.

We need to understand the reasons for flaky/intermittent tests.

In this session, with the help of demos, we will look at the following techniques you can use to reduce/eliminate the flakiness of your test execution:

  • Reduce the number of UI tests
  • Use Visual Assertions instead of Functional Assertions
  • Remove external dependencies via Intelligent Virtualization

Demos will be done using the following and a sample code will be shared with the participants

  • Specmatic
  • Teswiz
  • Applitools Eyes

Key Takeaways:

  • Explore the real reason of flaky tests.

  • Implement Visual Assertions instead of Functional Assertions to increase test coverage, while reducing code and increase test stability.

  • Use Intelligent and Dynamic Virtualization to remove external dependencies
