Next Friday will be my 2nd AMO Automation testday at Mozilla and the first one I’ve helped to organize. AMO stands for addons.mozilla.org and it’s the web-site for which I’ve been writing and reviewing automated checks (sometimes I call them tests, but I like referring to them as checks).
As part of the last test day, I ran a github workshop to help people figure out how to set up and work with github. Here’s a link to that blogpost.
For the upcoming testday, I’ll be running a workshop to help people who would like to run our addons selenium checks with our grid configuration. Although it’s easier, when starting out to write and execute tests using a standalone selenium jar, it’s good to understand how to run tests with selenium grid as well. All of the tests for AMO are run using grid, so this is the setup I use when I’m doing code review or writing checks.
This is the link to the github repo containing our grid configuration. I’ll be posting again next week with a few more instructions on how to modify the repo for running checks locally.
The testday starts at UTC/GMT 15:00:00 and continues throughout most of the day until 5:00pm Pacific time. (We’re global, baby!)
A few local times for the moz-grid-config workshop:

By the way…if you’re in the UK and close to London, you should checkout the London Selenium User’s Meetup which is happening next week. (I hear these are frakking awesome) :)
