There are thousand ways if not more how you can setup your automation testing environment. It is often crucial when it comes to stability and maintainability. While you can build a custom framework that fits your needs there are often already sophisticated setups or frameworks available that get you up and running very quickly.

WebdriverIO is one of these frameworks that is written in Node.js. It gets you up and running within minutes and allows you to scale up your test suite while maintaining your execution time by running tests in parallel. With its huge project community it is an ideal choice for small as well as big projects that use modern frameworks such as React, Angular or Vue.js.

In this talk you will learn everything you need to know to run a successful, stable and maintainable WebdriverIO framework. Christian will tell you everything from the basic concepts up to complex testing strategies you can do with WebdriverIO like frontend performance testing as well as complex browser interaction with Puppeteer.
