About the St Louis Quality Assurance Association

Background The idea of starting the St. Louis Quality Assurance Association (STLQAA) was born because of the need of having a place and time to gather with colleagues of software quality in the area, and was also inspired by the activities of the previous association.

Founders The founders of the STLQAA are all certified CSTE and/or CSQA and their combined experience is the greatest value for this group.

The STLQAA counts on the experience of one of the chairpersons who participated in the previous association.

Kickstarting Software Test Automation: The Sequel!

Learn how to improve last session's automation by applying core concepts learned from the QA and Automation field

About this Event

If you came to the last session you learned how to create a small messaging bot from scratch. That small project may have been the start of a rewarding path in Test Automation.

Now that you've had a month to play, let's clean things up! Instead of having one big script, let's:

- include "methods" to organize the code and make it more readable

- create "page objects" to decrease maintenance, and

- get a handle on making code more extendable later

The concepts you'll learn tonight are what set apart professional Test Automation experts from copy-paste amateurs. Come prepared to learn some cool things!

Attendees to this meeting will receive:

- A recording of the session

- Access to the code that we create

- A free 15-minute consulting session with the speaker, Michael "Fritz" Fritzius, AND

- Access to everything we had last time, just in case you missed that session.

Learning about Test Automation isn't as scary as it seems, and we'd love to be the ones who launch you on this exciting career path!

Fritz is the President of Arch DevOps located right here in St. Louis. His consultancy specializes in software testing, test automation and team building, and they're on a mission to improve and impact the QA function for 1,000 companies. Whether it's automation, QA management, coaching or test strategy, they have the skills to get you leveled up and independent.

NOTE: You will need to bring a laptop and also install a few pieces of software to get the most out of this session. Please install Ruby, the "watir" Ruby gem and Sublime Text Editor. If you get stuck, email fritz@archdevops.com with the subject "Help Installing Stuff for STLQAA Meeting" to get a response with details.
