    Flow Model vs Page Object Pattern
    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
    That's one of the reasons, the Flow Model pattern was created
    In this approach the structure of the application (Page Models) is separated from the logic (Flow Models)
    All the user flows are stored in these new models creating a facade over the page objects
    In this session, Peter will go through the technical details comparing the two approaches, how the Flow Model offers solutions to the Page Object's problems, and how it is easier for testers applying this architecture design
    Peter will give examples to help the audience pick the right approach for themselves

    Nikolaj Tolkačiov

    Because I'm lazy and easily bored, I tend to automate everything I can, if I need to do something twice that is a good indication that something
    is off. My automation experience suit includes mobile, gherkin, web, C#, Java, JavaScript, C++, Ruby, and multiple frameworks. I do coding and
    “DevOps'ing” too because I gain most of the value not deep-diving into one framework or discipline, but generalizing in the whole spectrum of
    software engineering. This generalist point of view allows me to see some issues from different angles and come up with more solutions to solve problems.

    Jenna Charlton

    I began speaking in 2018 at CodeMash in Sandusky Ohio where my first talk How Pro Wrestling Made Me A World Champion Tester put me on the proverbial map.
    Since then I’ve given far more serious talks at conferences like TestBash and Star. In 2020 I was a keynote at STARWest Virtual testing conference and I was on the selection
    committees for STARWest 2021 and Agile Testing Days USA as well as host for TestBash Home 2020 and 2021. I am an occasional tech blogger, trainer, product owner, and
    always a tester, but the accomplishments I’m most proud of are my ordination as a deacon at South Euclid UCC in 2016 and my long and happy marriage to my spouse for
    the past 11 years.
