Limited Capacity seats available

A few years ago Corey Haines invented the code retreat format. Since the first two global days of code retreat, the format seems to spread more and more. The concept is simple: over the course of a day, work in six different pairs on the ever same problem, write the best code you ever wrote, throw away your code after 45 minutes, and start from scratch.

Recently new formats seem to be invented bringing the format of a code retreat to new learning objectives. In this session, Markus will provide a brief look into the code retreat format for functional testautomation. The participants will work on a small internet application, automating tests using tools like Selenium or Watir, and sharing each other's experience with the different tools and frameworks around. The programming language, the test framework, and maybe even the test driver will be decided upon by the different pairs right in the session. Please bring your laptop prepared if you want to try any particular tool.

Why should I attend?

1. You will get to know how web applications can be tested with an automation framework
2. You will strengthen your techniques around test automation code
3. You will exchange your thoughts with other test automation developers.
