recheck and the Sorcerer's Stone: Turning Selenium into Adamantium

ZKM_OpenHUB
Jeremias Rößler
The NoSuchElementException is probably one of the most prominent problems when using Selenium. The open source project recheck solves this problem in an elegant and simple way. And on top of that, test are easier to create and maintain and yet more complete.

Ever had that: after a simple change, suddenly 50+ tests are failing! Brittle tests that hinge on GUI specifics and result in the dreaded NoSuchElementException are a main headache when testing with Selenium.

The open source project recheck offers a simple and elegant solution. Not only is a virtual identifier unaffected by UI changes, you can define it for otherwise hard to specify elements, i.e. that would require complex xpath or CSS selector expressions. And on top of that, tests are easier to create and maintain and yet much more complete in what they check. This talk gives a practical introduction to the underlying approach and the tool, complete with a life coding session.

Was hat sich für uns durch die DSGVO geändert, was müssen wir nun beachten? Ein Mittelmaß zwischen absoluter Panik und Entspannung wäre doch toll.

Creating documentation is often boring and needs a lot of copy&paste to update the different output formats. I'll show you my workflow creating textbased documentation with asciidoctor and convert it through a pipeline to html, pdf and some more formats.

IPLD -- "InterPlanetary Linked Data" -- is a data format with a canonical hashing scheme. With canonical hashing, we get immutable linking; and with this, we aim to build libraries and tools for decentralizing anything and everything. We need foundations for building whole ecosystems that are immune to "Error 451": IPLD is a mechanism for getting there.

Auf den vergangenen Camps fand ein Live Monitoring der Stromversorgung mit kommerziellen Poweranalysatoren statt, diese sollen durch eine eigene kostengünstige Lösung auf Basis des ADE9000 / ADE9078 ersetzt werden. Zusätzlich zum LAN erfolgt eine Statusmeldung über eine DMR Anbindung mit MMDVM.
