South Florida Test Automation Meetup presentation for Getting started with NightwatchJS

August 19, 2020

I attend a local Meetup chapter for South Florida Test Automation which tries to meet about once a month. For the past year or so we've been meeting after hours in Weston, Florida on the campus of Ultimate Software. Local software testing professionals are encouraged to attend.

Vlad, Philip, and Jairo manage to attract a wide range of speakers that present on things ranging from testing best practices, popular vendor tools, open source testing frameworks, and pizza 🍕.

It is a great place to learn and network with fellow QA professionals and test engineers, but with COVID shutting things down we had to stop our in person meetings. This past July we decided to give a fully online presentation a go.

I was asked to present on the Nightwatch.js testing framework and I feel it went really well. It was a bit awkward trying to guage audience feedback though while speaking when talking in a remote room I have to admit, but I think people got a lot of information out of it.

In the beginning of the meeting we learned password protecting the meeting link is probably a good idea in the future since a contingent of folks (or bots?) decided to crash the meeting, but Philip managed to punt them before we got rolling.
