/, Industry News, Mobile Application Testing/Supersize Your Open Source Testing Tools: Hands-on Methods Using Protractor to Test Hybrid Apps

We love open source. Who doesn’t? Sadly, it sometimes has its limitations when implementing at the enterprise level. Lucky for us, Wim Selles, a passionate test automation engineer at deTesters, lends us the playbook on his tactical approach to using Protractor to help Rabobank perfect their hybrid app.

Over the last few years, there has been tremendous growth in the quantity and quality of open source software testing tools available to DevOps teams.  Any test framework, however, will eventually be limited by its ability to cope with unique and changing objects, state changes, etc.  In The Digital Quality Handbook , Wim gives us a great overview of some of his methods for extending the utility of existing open source tools to cover these difficult testing situations.

At Rabobank, Wim created a test framework used by 15 different teams of developers and testers, and which integrated seamlessly into their existing IDEs as well as their Jenkins workflows.  Learn how to improve your automated testing strategies from a guru!
