In Person

Karlsruhe Developer Day 2023

June 14th-15th in Karlsruhe, Germany

Join Xebia| Xpirit’s Nico Orschel in his Test Automation for WebApps with Playwright session.

More about Nico’s Session.

Test automation is an important building block of software development projects. The foundation is formed by unit tests. However, not everything can be adequately tested with unit test frameworks, so that specific UI tests are still used as a supplement. In the web app area, the top dog here is Selenium. In the recent past, new alternatives to Selenium have emerged. The newest and most promising is the open source framework Playwright from Microsoft. Playwright tests can be created flexibly in different languages ​​such as C# or JavaScript, and they also support different browsers and operating systems.

The lecture will show the concepts, advantages, disadvantages and differences compared to Selenium. There will also be no shortage of live demos, giving a better feel for Playwright.
