Revolutionizing Web-UI Testing: Keyword-Driven Testing with Robot Framework & Playwright

The landscape of web-UI testing is rapidly evolving, with a growing need for tools that offer speed, reliability, and flexibility. Enter Robot Framework: an open-source, keyword-driven test automation framework that simplifies the process of writing and communicating test cases. This full-day workshop, hosted by René Rohner and supported by Jani Haapala, delves into the power of Robot Framework combined with the Playwright-based "Robot Framework Browser" library. This combination offers a potent solution for modern web-UI testing challenges.


What We'll Cover:
