UI Automation 101 - A Webinar Series

March 2nd, 2020 by inflectra

On February 19th, 2020 Inflectra launched the 3rd installment in its famous test automation webinar series series called: UI Automation 101. This step 3 webinar series builds on the earlier test automation series’ - Test Automation, Demystified and - Planet Test Automation: First Steps. This series aims to strengthen participants' grasp of the major test automation activities and learn the essentials of Test Automation. 

Details are inside!



A third-party observer sees automation first of all as writing code or scripts. In case of automating UI testing, the problem is not at all in programming. To a greater extent it is knowledge of the user interface's abilities and possibilities to interact with it in different ways. It is also important to understand the capabilities of the testing automation tool - in our case it is Rapisa and its strong points.

Please note that this series goes in parallel with webinars series on MS Dynamics UI Testing held by Denis Markovtsev and are assumed to contain supplementary material that should help  you  better understand the practices demonstrated there.


Webinar Series Goal:

In these series you will get an overview of fundamental building blocks for a successful UI Automation experience. We will discover together what you need to know about your application under test and how testing tools can help you get that knowledge.
