Python and Robot Framework - Beyond the obvious

Bala Kumaran (~BalakumaranS)




There are multitude of sources available when it comes to how to write test cases in Robot framework or how to write test libraries in Python and use them in your Robot test cases, Behaviour/data driven testing etc., but not much of information on some powerful features of Robot and how we can leverage it from Python libraries. As a Python developer, i dont want to give up my advantage of writing clean code for using Robot test cases

  • How to achieve design patterns in Python libraries and still make your test cases/test suites look simple
  • Usage of Proper Keywords
  • Proxy layer implementation - why is it good or bad?
  • Listeners in Robot Framework - some interesting use cases
  • Handling code changes in the later stage of your automation cycle

  • Prerequisites:

    Working knowledge of Python and Understanding of what is Robot framework/any keyword driven framework will be good

    The talk looks interesting. The LinkedIn link is broken, can you please fix it.

    Also it will be great if you can elaborate on the topics you have mentioned. For example, what do you mean by "Usage or Proper keywords"? Also what do you mean by "Proxy layer"?

    Thanks for letting me know, fixed the link

    those are the reasons this presentation is for but if you cant wait till i attach a presentation to this talk, you can always ping me on the side

    Making things a bit explicit, will increase the chances of your proposal getting selected. Also the talk selection happens before the slide upload deadline. So it is better to beef up the talk description.

    sure, will do

    Bala Kumaran (~BalakumaranS)

    I second Vijay's suggestion of beefing up the description. An outline with finer detail on what you want to cover will go a long way!

    If you have slides/videos of any previous talks you have given, that would be helpful too.
