Event Information

Hello, Testers,

Topic: "How to Learn a New Scripting Language"


When is this happening?

Saturday January 23, 2020 | 05:00 PM - 06:00 PM IST


Overview

Rob Sabourin has been using a multitude of different scripting languages to support testing efforts since the 1970s.

Rob will share the practical method he uses to learn, and adapt to, new and emerging scripting languages, technologies, and environments.

Rob suggests prospective scripters master some fundamental computing models, and basic programming concepts before jumping into learning a scripting language.

It is important to understand the concept of variables, which are things that change, influencing, or influenced by, the program. How variables are represented in computer memory varies with different scripting languages.  The basic variable types include representing text, whole and fractional numbers, and logical conditions.


Learning a new scripting language involves understanding:

  • Input
  • Output
  • error reporting
  • data streams
  • files
  • network protocols.
  • decision making
  • looping concepts


Rob’s starts scripting by creating simple visual models such as flow charts, control flow diagrams and state models. 

Rob will share the use of csv format input and output files.  Rob uses some simple example programs to help learn the basics of new scripting languages. He will describe how libraries should be identified to help control or manipulate software under test.

The Webinar concludes with a walk through of a generic keyword driven test automation script implemented in a few different languages.

What is TTTribeCast?

The testing Community is amazing. The reach and diversity it has been even more amazing. And that’s why we think that the physical reach of The Test Tribe Community should not become the barrier between Knowledge Givers and Seekers.

TTTribeCast is the Webinar Series by The Test Tribe where any Tester from the World can take up the virtual stage and share his/her knowledge with our Tribe.

The format is simple. The speaker goes live, shares his/her knowledge on the decided topic followed by a quick Q&A through comments on Live Video.


We hope you all are as excited as we are. See you all at Live Hour.

Happy Learning! Happy Testing!
