Technical Web Testing

Tutorial D     Start Time : 14:00     End Time : 17:30

How do we expand the scope of our testing to increase the possibility of finding issues that other people don’t? How can we identify new tools to help us boost our ability to test? One way is to incorporate the technology of the system into our testing. Understanding the technology helps us identify more risks, and opens new areas of the system to investigation. Knowing what tools match the technology, we can increase our ability to observe, interrogate and manipulate the system. And the tools themselves will provide new ideas for working with the system.

This tutorial will focus on the technology of the Web, and how we can improve our Technical Web Testing. By testing a combination of simple online games and applications we will explore the range of technologies in use. We will examine how the technologies change the risk profile of our testing. We will experiment with how to observe and interrogate the applications under test at a more technical level. We will investigate how the features of existing tools we use for testing can boost our ability to go more deeply into the technology.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Understand the basics of web applications, HTML, DOM, HTTP
  2. Hands on experience with browser dev tools and basic JavaScript
  3. How you can use technology to augment your existing testing skills
