3. QF-Test at Conferences

On Thursday 19th of October Fabian Klaffke talked about experiences in a client project: “Keyword-driven testing and variant management – practical experience with Klaros-Testmanagement and QF-Test”. This solution workshop was part of the 25th software QA day of imbus in Frankfort, the leading conference concerning software quality and software testing in Germany.

Dr. Pascal Bihler of QFS focused on the developer’s side with his speech: “It works, but does it work the way it should?” – GUI test automation for Vaadin projects” on the Java Community Conference JCON in Dusseldorf which took place for the first time. Mr. Bihler had a whole cinema hall on Wednesday 25th of October for his presentation. From the script: With RapidClipse you can create extensive projects either as web application, hybrid mobile app or classical Java desktop app efficiently and conveniently. HTML5 and Vaadin are the web technologies therefore. And with QF-Test the testing of such projects is also fun.
