Appium and React Native with special guest Wim Selles

19/09/2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We have a special guest coming all the way from the Netherlands – Wim Selles!

Wim is a Test Automation Engineer based in the Netherlands who has a passion for frontend test automation with Javascript. He likes to create his own node modules to help and support (automation) engineers, is also a contributor for multiple open source projects and is an active member in multiple Gitter channels related to automation.

The last years he has used Appium for automating Hybrid and React Native Apps. He likes to share his automation experiences on conferences like AppiumConf London and SeleniumConf India, his blog and during Meetups and webinars.
You can find him blogging on http://www.wswebcreation.nl, on LinkedIn on http://nl.linkedin.com/in/wimselles and follow his tweets as @wswebcreation on https://twitter.com/wswebcreation 

Why the h# should I use Appium with ReactNative? 
Currently there are a lot of testautomation frameworks that can help you automate your native app, but how do you pick the right one? In this presentation I want to show you my journey for selecting the best tool for testing our new React Native app for iOS and Android. Together we will take a look at the selected teststrategy and walk down the bumpy road I needed to take to get the automation on the quality level it is now.

How React Native, Appium and me made each other shine!
At the moment React Native is becoming bigger and bigger. To proof the quality of the app we have some awesome automation tools that can support us with that. But still, a tool is only as good as the person using it! In the previous presentation I’ve already explained why we needed to select Appium to automate our React Native app. In this presentation we will look at the decisions we have taken and how I, as the QA engineer of our team, got the opportunity to implement code changes to improve the quality of the app and ease the way we automate our app with Appium. Which resulted in making each other shine!
