Péter Földházi Jr – Flow Model vs Page Object Pattern
Speech bullet points:
The Page Object Pattern is widely known and used amongst Test Automation Engineers
It allows engineers to model the application for their tests, reusing certain elements, making the test solution more structured and hence decreasing maintenance cost and the learning curve of test automation
For some, Page Object is not intuitive though
From a tester’s point of view, it could be improved
Moreover, it breaks the Single Responsibility principle, which has been one of its most criticized flaws
Peter has been working at EPAM since 2012 and moved to the USA in 2019 where he has been working as a Test Automation Consultant and as a Quality Architect.
He has experience in mobile, web and desktop testing in all levels of test automation in the financial, gaming, fitness and other domains.
Processes, architecture, code quality and customer satisfaction are highly import to him. He is the first European and one of the first people in the World having successfully taken and passed the ISTQB CTAL Test Automation Engineer module exam.
He is actively helping the ISTQB by reviewing syllabi of foundation and advanced levels. Peter is also an active speaker, having attended meetups and software engineering conferences with multiple topics. He used to be a guest lecturer at 3 Budapest based universities: Óbuda, Pázmány and the ELTE universities. Brewing beer and planting chilis are some of his hobbies.
