Test automation and software craftsmanship

Benjamin Bischoff, Test Automation Engineer at trivago N.V. (ex Senior Automation Engineer at Ubisoft Düsseldorf)

The recording of my live coding YouTube stream "API Testing mit Karate (API testing with Karate)" is now available (German only)! This was a 75 minute event in collaboration with Never Code Alone.

The recording of my talk "Of plugins & decorators - trivago's e2e test framework in the spotlight" is now available! This is based partly on this blog post highlighting the framework's plugin infrastructure.

I wrote an article for the Ministry of Testing community about common software design patterns and methodologies that can be helpful when dealing with UI automation.

Sometimes, you have to look back to solve a problem. In this post, I will explain how I created a plugin based architecture for our end to end test framework using Java's 20 year old Service Provider Interface.
