We sent out a team to conduct a workshop on Test Automation at the Department of Computer Science & Engineering, University of Moratuwa on the 30th of August 2013. The team was lead by pioneer in Test Automation, Kishan Navaratne. The session was held in the CSE Lab and more than 80 students were present.
Kishan started off with an Introduction to the selenium Test Automation Framework. Shortly afterwards he demonstrated the basic ways of configuring the Selenium IDE. Kishan’s team included Lasantha, Tharaka, Isurika, Akalanka, Vidushi & Sheeyam. They guided the students with setting up the Test Automation Environment.
Kishan then demonstrated how to write Test scripts in C-Sharp programming language on visual studio. He also demonstrated the use of selenium references using different web browser drivers. Our team then handed out a few t-shirts to the students who answered questions posed by the speaker. This motivated the students to interact with us more.
The students showed a great deal of interest in learning test automation. All in all it was a very informative session and the team received excellent feedback from the students.
