Tooling for Automated Testing with Butch Mayhew image
Talk Description

Come and hear about my team's Ruby Test Automation Framework (RTAF). Over the past 6 years, we've been investing in test automation across our different products. We have identified patterns and built up a framework full of useful libraries to help our engineers write, maintain, and report.

I'll be giving an overview of our framework zooming in on our automated API checks, discussing the tools we've built that can easily be implemented in other languages and frameworks.

What you’ll learn

By the end of this talk, you'll be able to:

  • Know why we chose Ruby and continue to choose Ruby in the Javascript era.
  • Do a walk-through of how we measure coverage for our automated REST API checks.
  • Do a drive-by of the other tools we've built within our framework (API Assertion Builder, V scripts, gitlab-ci.yml, console output)
