Redefining Test Automation

There are a common set of techniques that seasoned test automation practitioners know to be the pillars of any successful automated testing practice that can be fit into most (if not all) team contexts.

But some things have either been left out, or are described in ways that are disadvantageous for the industry simply because we don't talk about it from the perspective of the fundamentals used to craft them.

By reasoning from first principles, we will be able to unearth a more impactful definition of test automation that can act as a compass and help supercharge everyone's test automation practice - while also understanding how to navigate the uncharted waters of new technologies that challenge existing paradigms.

Mastering XCUItest: Native IOS Test Automation (90 Minute Workshop)

Automated testing has been a crucial part of software development for many years, and with the increasing popularity of mobile apps, testing mobile apps has become a crucial part of the software testing process.

However, testing mobile apps comes with its own set of unique challenges, and testing on the iOS platform is no exception. That's where XCUITest comes in as Apple's native test automation library for iOS apps.

Since its release, XCUITest has quickly become the go-to solution for iOS app testing. According to Statista, as of 2021, there were over 1.96 million iOS apps available on the Apple App Store, with that number expected to increase to over 3 million by 2025.

With such a large number of apps, testing and ensuring their quality is crucial to the success of both the app and its developer.

In this session, a panel of experts will give you the lay of the enterprise testing land and walk you through how to confront common issues with:
• API end-to-end testing periods
• Test data
• Web & mobile interfaces
• Multi-system coordinated testing periods
• And more!

Conducting enterprise-level testing is no small feat. This panel discussion will help you be prepared to face common challenges that inevitably arise so you can quickly get back to what matters most — ensuring a high-quality app!

BONUS: Get Instant Lifetime Access To Our 24/7 Active Community Of 2600+ Skilled Testers!

I know that the a lot of the time it can feel like the managers just don't “get it” when it comes to the testing side of things.

With most testers reporting to different people, it’s natural to feel fractured from your community.

And for a lot of folks who are sole testers at their firm, it's even more lonely.

Look - you can always make your own mistakes and learn on our own…

But having a community to fall back on makes achieving your goals - much EASIER and a lot FASTER.

Because it provides a space for like-minded testers to learn from each other’s mistakes and shorten their learning curve - by months (or even years).

That’s why with Automation Guild, I built a community of testers - from beginners to advanced - ready and willing to genuinely help each other grow.

And that’s been one of the
biggest game-changers for them.

Here's what industry veterans say about the Automation Guild community...

I've been doing testing automation for 21 years and I really enjoyed the Automation Guild.

I really like that I got back into latest industry trends. The conference was really well organized and there was a wide variety of applicable topics.

I'm also really enjoying the Slack community and the ability to communicate with test automation experts from all around the world, year-round.

Overall, I found that Automation Guild was really great and I have a lot of ideas that I can apply to my work.

Michelle Pleas

Principal Test Engineer

You think you know everything, and then you find our you really do know just a small part of the equation.

Having testers in the Slack channel giving ideas and pointers has helped me immensely in expanding my range of knowledge and acceptance of tools that can make the wheels turn even better.

Charlie Harris

Senior Quality Assurance Manager

Just like these testers, you can also leverage the Automation Guild community as a 24/7 resource for you to:

➤ Get constant feedback on what you’re currently working on
➤ Identify what technologies other companies are working with
➤ Network with experts from all over the world (year-round)
➤ Discover the most in-demand skills to focus on
➤ Find quick solutions to technical (and career-related) problems

So if you don’t want to waste any more of your time on flaky tests…

Or jump from forum to forum searching for answers…

Or sift through 10 different articles trying to find a solution…

And would like to create consistently better, faster, and reliable automation moving forward...

Simon Aronsson

Head of Developer Relations

As always, an awesome event! A superabundance of testing goodness.

Even before the conference had ended, the team was already chasing new ideas, refining existing practices and getting colleagues excited about new possibilities.

Validation of current practices and plans is always a tremendous win and Automation Guild weighs in massively in this regard.

Our plans are solid and aligned with those of our peers around the globe; the future is bright indeed!

What could be more awesome than that?

Mike Taber

I gained critical insights into the tools and techniques that industry practitioners use, the strategies that businesses consider when building an automation strategy, and the industry's latest automation trends.

I didn't expect an e-conference to be so well organized...and how welcoming the community that Joe and Team have built was. You also retain access to all conference materials even after the event.

Perhaps even more valuable is the opportunity to be part of an inclusive and supportive community of knowledgeable folks that you can tap into as a resource as you develop your career. Automation Guild sets the bar high!

Felix Lee

More than just great talks, the attendees (the guild) are aligned in helping each other by sharing ideas or building on what was just heard and learning new things, the interaction is really something that takes this conference to another level.

To repeat, I can say I'm an official member of the guild now!

Cristiano Cunha

Solution Architect & Testing Advocate

What exactly is the Automation Guild event?

Automation Guild is an industry-standard annual online event I’ve organized since 2017.

In fact, AG 2017 was
one of the first-ever online events in the world dedicated 100% to automation testing.

My goal?

To create a community-driven event made for the the testers -- laser focused to help them achieve less flaky automation and fast-track their career growth.

That’s why for each event, I invite some of the most highly qualified and experienced automation experts in the world…

...and give them a platform to share key functional (and non-functional) insights required to build better software - faster.

Plus, share all the latest tips, best practices, useful tools, effective strategies, and actionable techniques from their real-world experience.

What kind of results can I expect?

By implementing real-world expert advice that will be shared by the experts at Automation Guild '24, you can expect to:
✓ Achieve faster, better, and reliable automation
✓ Save time wasted on flaky tests
✓ Avoid little-known and time-consuming mistakes
✓ Shorten your learning curve
✓ Upgrade (and widen) your skillset
✓ Open up more (and better) career opportunities
✓ Fast-track your career growth

What is the Time Zone for this online event? What if I can’t attend LIVE?

All LIVE sessions usually take place from 10 AM to 6 PM Eastern Time Zone.

The exact day-wise and time slot for each session is being finalized and will be updated soon.

If you can’t make it LIVE, no worries.

Because with your ticket, you’ll also get Lifetime Access to:
⇨ Every over-the-shoulder video training session
⇨ The Q&A video with the speaker after their session
⇨ Roundtable “ask experts anything” session (typically at the end of each day)
⇨ Complete LIVE chat transcripts
⇨ Session transcripts

⇨ Any PDF resources shared by the speakers

Bonus: Automation Guild community of 2600+ testers - where you can ask questions, get feedback, find solutions, and network with them - throughout the year.

In fact, if you can not attend the LIVE Q&As - you can submit your questions to me ahead of time and I will ask the speaker LIVE.

After the conference is over I will edit all the LIVE Q&A and place each speakers individual Q&A session under their speaker’s page so you will be able to view their session and Q&A from the same location.

Can you create a custom invoice for me?

Yes, absolutely.

Here’s what you need to do:

Step #1: Just proceed with registration using your preferred payment mode.

Step #2: After that, email me at with the details you require on your custom invoice.

That’s it. Shortly after, 
I’ll send your custom invoice so you can claim your reimbursement. 

Should I get a 3-day ticket or a 5-day ticket?

If you’re only interested in topics related to functional automation, the 3-Day event is right for you.

However, if you’d like to expand your knowledge on other critical automation topics (non-functional automation) such as:
• Performance testing
• Security testing
• DevOps
• Chaos engineering
• Accessibility testing, etc.

Then you should most certainly opt for the
best value option: The Complete 5-Day E2E Event.

Is there a money-back guarantee?

I’m 100% confident that you’ll pick tons of actionable tips that you can implement right away with your current automation solution.

And I know the sessions from Automation Guild '24 will help you achieve faster, better, dependable, and less flaky automation in 2024 (and beyond).

I’m also sure that
you’ll love our helpful Automation Guild community of 2600+ testers and automation experts - for networking, finding quick solutions, getting feedback & new ideas.

In fact, thousands of people have attended the Automation Guild over the last few years. And most of them attend every year to stay ahead of the curve.

But rest assured, your investment in Automation Guild is
protected by my 180-day “Love it or Leave it” 100% money-back guarantee.

So if you're not satisfied for any reason at all...or don't get tangible results from Automation Guild 2024…

Simply let me know within 180 days (6 full months), and I'll return 100% of your investment.

No Questions Asked.


How does Automation Guild work?

1) Automation Guild online conference is a single track event.

2) All LIVE activity takes place in the EDT/EST time zone (usually 10AM - 6:00PM).

3) I ask the speakers to
pre-record their sessions ahead of time to ensure the best video/audio quality while streaming at the LIVE event.

I try to add these training sessions to attendees account a week BEFORE the LIVE event to give folks a chance to watch ahead of time if they want.

4) I ask all speakers to keep there sessions to 25 minutes.

5) During the LIVE conference days, I stream the pre-recorded training session -- followed by a LIVE Q&A with the speaker.

6) All activities during LIVE conference days are recorded and uploaded to the site (attendees' account)
 within 24hrs.

7) We use private chat channels for questions and communications.

8) The history of all the LIVE chats is saved as a PDF and uploaded to the site (attendees' account) after the event as well.

9) If someone can't attend the LIVE Q&As they submit their questions to me ahead of time and I ask the speaker on their behalf.

10) This is like a hybrid conference/membership event. Attendees can log in to their account and rewatch all training sessions + Q&As forever.

All videos can also be downloaded locally.

11) All session videos will also have transcripts.

How should I approach my company to pay (or reimburse) for my ticket?

If your company has an education budget for employees...Or you just want to put forth a value proposition for AG 2024 in front of your manager, this might help:

>>> Google Doc (Email Template)

All you need to do is make a copy of this document. And then simply edit the email template to suit your needs.

For eg. If your group has 2 members choose a quantity of 2. If it has 5 choose a quantity of 5 and so forth.

The ticket/lifetime access price is per attendee.

For more details, please refer payment info above.

Do you offer any payment plans?

Lifetime access to all video training + Q&A sessions, transcripts & resources, and joining our Automation Guild community can only be unlocked for a one-time investment of $297 for the 5-day event and $197 for the 3-day event.

However, as a new member of TestGuild you can get an instant 30% off on the ticket of your choice.

That said, I understand the amounts carry a different weight for testers from various countries and financial situations.

That’s why I suggest looking at this as an investment in yourself...and evaluate it from an ROI point of view.

Q #1: Would getting lifetime access to practical and real-world knowledge of the world's top automation experts - help you get a higher salary and open up more (and better) opportunities?

Q #2: Would 24/7 access to 2600+ skilled testers help you get quick solutions, avoid mistakes, save a ton of time, and enable you to reach your goals faster?

Q #3: Simply put...would it give you back way more than your investment in AG 2024 - just like it has for all the testers in our community?

Asking yourself the above 3 questions will help you make the best decision for your current situation.


I don’t want you worrying about losing your investment…

That’s why I also offer an
unconditional 180-day "Love it or Leave it" 100% money-back guarantee.

And honestly, I don’t know of any other online conference in the world that gives 100% of the investment back.
