Session #1:
Building Powerful and Customizable Mobile Automation with Appium 2.0 Plugin

What if you had to support a custom locator in your project and with Appium 1.0 it was not possible? This would lead us to maintain a fork and make our required changes. Which in turn is overkill as we have to always keep up with upstream.

With Appium 2.0 architecture we can create plugins for our special needs. At this talk, we are going to talk about Appium 2.0 architecture, how to create custom plugins, and what other breaking changes we brought in Appium 2.0.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn basic on Appium Plugin Architecture
  • Learn how to build a custom plugin

Session #2:
Practical Usage of Testing Pyramid

The famous Test Pyramid guides us to group tests into buckets of different layers. It also gives an idea of how many tests we should have in each of these groups and making sure we don’t repeat executing the same tests in different layers. Although the concept of the Test Pyramid has been around for a while, many agile teams still struggle to put it into practice properly. In this presentation, I will be covering some practical use cases on how to use the testing pyramid effectively, how to decide the most suitable bucket for a test so that we don’t overload the CI system and get testing feedback early. I will also cover how together with the quality attributes testing pyramid can help us to create a solid testing strategy.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to select right kind of tests in different layers of pyramid.
  • How to get achievable automation coverage in sprint.
  • How to create a solid testing strategy by combining testing pyramid and quality attributes.
