Pekka Klarck's Robot Framework Hands-On Training

OpenSource & Agile Community Events

The Skills Matter eXChange , London, GB

This 2-day hands-on Robot Framework workshop will show you how to create maintainable acceptance tests with Robot Framework and how to use various features of the framework effectively. We will also go through how to use Robot Framework for Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD) and how to extend it with your own test libraries.

Robot Framework is a generic open source test automation framework for acceptance level testing and ATDD. It utilizes the keyword-driven testing approach and its tabular test data syntax is easy enough to learn also for non-programmers. Its testing capabilities can be extended with test libraries (a.k.a. fixtures) implemented natively using Python or Java and with other languages via a remote interface.

Robot Framework has a rich ecosystem around it. There are, for example, ready-made libraries for web testing, databases, SSH, Swing, SWT and Windows GUIs. Although the test data can be edited with any text or HTML editor (depending on the format), there is also a separate editor called RIDE with powerful features such as syntax highlighting, keyword completion, and simple refactoring support. There are also plugins for Ant, Maven, and Hudson/Jenkins.
