More and more organizations build test automation frameworks based on the WebDriver and Appium tools to perform software testing their web and mobile projects. A big part of why there are so many flaky tests is that we don’t treat our tests as production code. Moreover, we don’t treat our framework as a product. In this presentation, you will see examples of how you can automate the testing of your test automation framework and be sure that it is highly reliable. You can get lots of ideas for various types of tests such as learning tests verifying that 3rd party dependencies are not breaking the code, compatibility tests checking that the UI components are working for each mobile control on each OS, cross-platform verifications for testing whether everything is working on multiple OS. Sample test environments for storing different distributions of the framework packages will be presented.
