Alan Page, Unity Technologies
If you are a software tester in 2018, chances are you’re testing a website or web application. Whether you are testing in a browser, within a web “wrapper” framework like Electron, or even a web app wrapped in a mobile application, your customers are using web apps and websites constantly—and they want them to work well. Our challenge in test, of course, is to test as thoroughly and efficiently as we can, given our time and resource constraints. Long time software testing veteran Alan Page demonstrates some of his favorite free or inexpensive tools for testing web apps and shares stories of using these tools in the trenches. Some tales will make you laugh, some will make you shake your head, and a few just may make you scream out loud. Bring a laptop and a website, and Alan will walk you through using tools like Fiddler and built-in web debuggers; static analysis tools for web pages; performance and security testing tools; Docker; and whatever else we can fit into this action-packed and entertaining workshop.
When the workshop is completed, the attendees will be able to:
- Use new tools to help them better test their web apps
- Apply basic API testing to any REST service
- Implement new ways to use tools they may already know
- Discover/find tools on the job to help them in their testing
