Event Challenges

At the centre of UI Automation Week are these challenges. They've been specifically designed to test your existing skills, help you develop new ones and to frame your learning journey. These challenges are open to everyone and we're inviting you to share your experience reports throughout the week. We want to hear how you went about solving them, what technologies you used and what problems you had to overcome to solve them.

If that sounds interesting to you, let us know. If selected you'll get 20 minutes to tell your story and demo your solution. We'll even pay you £100 for your time.

These challenges are available in Java, JavaScript, C# and Python. Of course you can solve them with whatatever you like, but our experience report sessions will focus on these languages.

Basic UI Check (Beginner)

This challenge presents a basic UI feature to automate to get you started. It will help you learn how to get a UI automation tool setup.

Clean Up Messy Code (Intermediate)

This challenge helps you learn how to structure UI automation code in a sensible way.

Visual Checking (Intermediate)

This activity allows you to try out a new approach to asserting information in the UI through the use of visual checking.

Automate a Desktop Application (Intermediate)

This activity will build on your knowledge of Web automation but focus it in a different context onto native applications.

Update a Framework to Support Cross-Browser Checking (Expert)

The goal of this challenge is to get you thinking about how to set up and use grids for cross-browser / device automation.

Automate a Canvas/SVG Based Site (Expert - Bonus Challenge!)

This challenge gets you thinking about how to automate less straightforward HTML features. By the end of the activity, you should have an approach to automating SVG / Canvas tags on a website.
