Introduction to Playwright

Get acquainted with Microsoft's browser automation library called Playwright, which is taking the testing world by storm. It is versatile and allows you to do anything you want with your browser.

Why attend the workshop?

You will get to know the Playwright library from Microsoft, which is used to automate browsers, and you will learn how to use it in practice.

Key Takeaways

How to start a Node.js project from scratch

You will become familiar with the basic syntax of the Typescript language, which is necessary for working with Playwright (declaration of classes, methods, cycles, etc.)

Try out the basic functionality of the Playwright library yourself:

Starting and closing the browser

Interaction with basic elements on the page

Creating a screenshot in case of an error

Asynchronous functions

Using the Page Object Pattern model

The workshop will be very practical and at a level more suitable for beginners. We will not get into extra complex things, on the contrary, emphasis will be placed on partial independent tasks so that participants can try everything on their own.

Michal Jirka will guide you through the course

I have been involved in testing for quite a few years; I started sometime in early 2017. I have already completed several projects in various (mostly) automation positions, alternately in the areas of banking and automotive.
I enjoy talking to people, and trainings, workshops, and consultations provide a great opportunity for that!
When I'm not engaged in conversation, I like to play sports, eat, or simply hang out, sometimes combining these hobbies in various ways.
