Andrei Coman Presents at EuroPython 2016

On July 18th, 3Pillar’s Andrei Coman gave a presentation on testing web applications with Python and Selenium at the EuroPython 2016 conference in Bilbao, Spain. EuroPython is the largest conference in Europe dedicated to the Python programming language, and it was held from July 17th to July 24th.

Andrei’s presentation, titled “Effectively Test Your WebApp with Python and Selenium,” looks at a real-world case study of the challenges faced by a team maintaining a Selenium test suite against a long-lived Django web application. Andrei also explored the pros and cons of test design approaches, technologies the team used during the effort, and reporting tools. The presentation was concluded with a brief Q&A session.

A description of the presentation, in Andrei’s own words, reads as follows:

“How often do you run your Selenium test suite? How fast do you get a result from it? Would you like to answer with: ‘Whenever I feel like it’ and ‘Well, about the time it takes me to finish a coffee’? This talk will try to get you closer to these answers.

We will have a look at the lessons learned and the challenges my team faced maintaining a Selenium test suite against a long-lived Django web application.

We will go over the pros and cons of: -test design approaches – technologies we used (nose, py.test, LiveServerTestCase) – reporting tools.”

Below is a video of Andrei’s presentation. His talk begins at 2:22.55 and concludes at 2:42.40.
