    UI Test Automation Maintenance Using SpecFlow


    99 Minute Workshop


    A common issue with UI automation is that the smallest change to the UI can break the tests. Updating and maintaining existing tests is a common activity for testers. For those new to test automation development, analysing the code and finding the flaws is an excellent starting point for becoming an SDET.

    The tests used in this workshop have been developed using SpecFlow in Visual Studio. During this workshop, we will learn how to use the debugging tools available in visual studio to identify and fix the bugs in the tests and get those tests passing.

    This course is aimed at those who might already have a little programming knowledge, but lack the confidence to develop automated tests from scratch. Fixing an existing test and seeing that green tick appear next to a previously failing test can be a huge confidence boost.
