Protractor training, fully updated for 2018+ 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!)
While the topic area is testing, Protractor and related tools are oriented toward "developers in test" not toward non-developer testers.
For some of our class topics, we are working on an online course offering. It will have numerous short video segments, teaching each topic in detail, plus longer segments in which we demonstrate the techniques in the use.
This format makes it possible for us to provide enormous depth of content, while as a viewer you can carefully study the portions of interest, and skip those of less interest; or rewatch the live coding example segments to pick up more valuable tips.
This content is still in development - if you're interested please contact us (using the form, or our email address at the bottom of the page).
For corporate groups and other organizations, we offer live, in-person instruction. These teams typically have advanced needs and are looking for hands-on assistance, so for larger groups we send two expert instructors. Each private class is preceded by a technical discussion so that we can understand your needs and customize the content to deliver maximum value.
