Serenity BDD for Automated Acceptance Tests Training Course

Serenity BDD for Automated Acceptance Tests Training Course

319 Phaya Thai Road, Pathum Wan, Pathum Wan District, Bangkok, Thailand



“40% to 70% of the time spent by many test automation teams is spent on maintaining their test suites …either refactoring tests because the application changed but also just sifting through the results of the tests when they break…” — John Furguson Smart, creator of Serenity.

Serenity is an open-source reporting library that enables testers to write well-structured, maintainable acceptance criteria. Serenity produces rich and meaningful test reports (“living documentation”) that not only report on the test results, but also document what they did, in a step-by-step narrative format that includes test data and screenshots.

In this instrucor-led, live training participants will learn how to write high quality tests by employing “screenplays” and the idea of “actors, tasks, and goals” to express tests in business terms rather than as interactions between system components. We look at both functional and UI testing scenarios and demonstrate how Serenity can be used to manage their testing. All lecture, notes, quizes and discussions are accompanied by live hands-on practice and implementation.

By the end of this training, participants will understand the Serenity framework and be able to utilize it with comfort. As important, participants will learn to think of and approach test automation from a different light.
