 London SDET Meeup at Guardian

London Developers in Test meeup has been organised at the Guardian, London office. Guardian office is cool and they arranged everything in advance. In the first talk, Gideon Goldberg [@GidsG] has shown ‘wraith-donk‘ and then Marc Jones talked about transition from manual QA to SDET.

In my session, I have covered following topics

  • Introduction to Appium
  • Installation and running Appium
  • Setting Mobile App for Appium: Local and Saucelabs[@saucelabs]
  • Appium Inspector
  • Live Demo

Live demo was very slow as network wasn’t good enough and some port has been blocked by the firewall. Details of the meetup can be found here
