Organizations today are required to test their web application across browsers and mobile devices. Choosing the right framework is a matter of organizational as well as technical fit. With a plethora of test frameworks that span across practices such as behavior-driven development, unit tests, UI, and others, it can be a struggle to select the right tool. In this session, Eran Kinsbruner will provide an overview of the market and cover the top ten open source test frameworks, with a comparison table of pros and cons about when and why to use one tool over another. Eran will take into account technical automation skills, market trends, framework functionality, usability, and integration concerns. You'll learn about the current cross-browser testing landscape and future forecasts, putting you in a solid position to pick the best open source test framework for your unique needs.
