Surviving UI Automation Armageddon with BELLATRIX
Have you heard of those heavy and complex Design Patterns for Tests Automation? Maybe you did and you thought: Why would I overcomplicate my Test Automaton solution to follow all of these? Nikolay was also thinking this some time ago until the reason behind all of these has hit his team like a burning stone coming from the sky: 5000+ automated UI tests were about to go in the waste, because of a huge project for a complete redesign of the Product under test from ASP.NET MVC to Single Page Application using ReactJs.
In this session, Nikolay will show not only how their tests survived, but how they became the most valuable asset, contributing to the potential success of this project.
