Apr 23, 2023, 4:10 PM
Lightning talk (10 min) Main Track


We'll talk about the KDE effort to adopt this popular test automation framework to test its own apps. After many years frustrated with other alternatives we found we have started deploying this new approach. We'll go through it's main advantages, why we think it will help our developer story and how you can adopt it to your project. Hint: it's very easy, if you support Linux's standard accessibilty infrastructure.
