The West Yorkshire Python User Group (WYPy) have been meeting monthly since 2007. Our meetings are free, and usually include at least one talk, as well as a trip to the pub.
Simple Selenium Test (SST, http://testutils.org/sst/ ) is an open source Python framework for writing automated tests for web applications. SST tests use Selenium Webdriver to drive real web browsers around the system under test.
- The Test People recently used SST for the first time in a large project for a client. In this talk I'll cover:
- How SST compares with other approaches to writing automated functional tests for webapps.
- Why we thought SST was an appropriate choice for this project
- What changes we needed to make to the framework to support our needs
- What changes I'd like to see in the future
- Whether SST lived up to its promise
Peter Russell is a Senior Consultant working at The Test People.
This talk should be suitable for people of all levels of Python experience. It may be of particular interest to people involved in testing or web development.
