Protractor is an end-to-end test framework, built on top of Selenium, for AngularJS applications. In the 1st session, Alon Heller from Alcatel-Lucent explained how Protractor makes life easier when it comes to testing AngularJS applications. He showed how to configure, write, debug and run tests using Protractor, and discussed best practices and tips to get the most out of the framework. You can see Alon’s slide-deck here.

In the 2nd session, Adam Carmi from Applitools talked about visual test automation using Selenium. His presentation covered visual testing in-depth, including: what visual testing is and why it should be automated; challenges involved with visual test automation, and modern tools that addresses those challenges. Adam also reviewed available open-source and commercial Selenium-based visual testing tools, and showed how visual test automation fits in the development / deployment lifecycle. You can find Adam’s slide-deck below:
