Robot Framework Tutorial and Hands-on Training


The target of this training course is to learn basics of Robot Framework in a hands on
manner. This includes creating test cases and new domain specific higher level
keywords, running tests and analyzing results, as well as understanding the overall
architecture of the framework and what is available in the wider Robot Framework

Target audience

This training is especially targeted for testers, programmers, and other development
team members, but it is suitable for everyone who is interested in Robot Framework.
Participants should have at least some testing experiences, but no programming skills
or previous test automation experience is necessary.
The training is fully generic and suitable for people in any domain. The application under
test in the hands-on exercises is web based, and participants will thus get some web
test automation skills as a bonus.


Participants should have a laptop with Python 3.6 or higher installed. Operating system
does not matter, but participants should be comfortable using the machine and have
local admin rights to it.


The planned high-level agenda is as follows. The list of additional topics can be adapted based on participant needs and interests.
