Protractor training, fully updated for 2019+ practices:
()=>and other concise syntax
waitForAngularEnabled(false), which many applications require
Some developers have described Protractor E2E browser automation testing as tedious or fragile, sometimes so often that this is accepted as the common wisdom. While automated browser testing is not without its challenges, this reputation is exaggerated! With the right skills and techniques, Protractor testing is very practical and valuable.
There are numerous resources around the Internet to get started with Protractor, but relatively few oriented toward extensive, advanced use. Furthermore, many older learning resources reflect several years old practices, rather than current optimal practices.
The goal of this class is to be the definitive, detailed, deep explanation of how to use Protractor effectively. Developers learn techniques for concise, quickly developed automated tests - of large or complex applications. This class covers both getting started and reaching the finish line.
Our examples use Angular applications written with the current Angular, but most of the techniques apply back to AngularJS 1.x, and even to other frameworks like React. (Inquiries about applying these techniques to React applications are welcome!)
Many teams are comparing Protractor and Cypress for their E2E testing. In a private engagement, we can address this at the start of class - your team could choose or pivot between these two choices after class has already started.
While the topic area is testing, Protractor and related tools are oriented toward "developers in test" not toward non-developer testers.
Oasis Digital instructors have extensive experience with both Angular and numerous surrounding technologies; here are some of them. The specific instructor(s) assigned to your class will depend on which class or class topics (we customize!) are put together, availability, additional consulting needs, etc.
For corporate groups and other organizations, we offer live in-person instruction. These teams typically have advanced needs, so we provide customized, hands-on assistance.
Before each class, our instructors will listen to your needs in depth and add or change the class agenda. We can also follow-up a class with consulting assistance, or combine multiple classes into a longer workshop week.
Want to attend as an individual or small group? We are creating public, open enrollment versions of many of our classes, including this one.
Unlike canned video training, live instructor online classes offer frequent opportunities for detailed Q&A discussion.
This class isn't quite ready yet, but follow us on social media (bottom of the page) or keep an eye on our website for announcements. We will show the schedule of upcoming open enrollment class dates prominently.
