On Tuesday, I spoke to Mark Barzilay from SpriteCloud about how they developed Lapis_Lazuli to make their test automation development & execution easier. Come listen to some of the features you could benefit from.
I was joined by the Watir Team’s primary Support Sherriff Justin Ko on the Watir Podcast. He talked about how he started in test automation and his favorite version of Watir – the answers surprised me!
Jeff Morgan, AKA Cheezy, comes onto the Watir Podcast to discuss the new release of his Page Objects gem, his Fig Newton gem, Data Magic gem, Service Mock gem, and agile.
The Watir Podcast has release Episode 64, in which I interview Automation expert Jason Watts about why he likes using Watir over other libraries. He is knowledgeable about his test stack! In the course of half an hour, we talk about page objects (3 libraries), Allure, Cucumber, RSpec, Xvfb, Fig Newton, IRB, PRY, Watir Model, Docker, Vagrant, Ansible, BitBucket, Bamboo, Slack, Stack Overflow, Watir General (google groups), and Github.
I have released another podcast on using Watir with page objects. My guest, Titus Fortner, explains his Watir_drops page object gem.
WatirSome is a page object gem that uses the same DSL as Watir. Learn more about it on the Watir Podcast Episode 61 from Watir team developer Alex Radionov.
It’s hard for me to remember what it was like to start using Watir in the mid-2000’s, but Jon Franchi reminded me a little about it when we spoke about his experiences.
