Robot Framework Library

The target of this training course is to learn creating test libraries for Robot Framework using Python programming language.

For who?

The target audience for this training are developers and testers that are interested to create test libraries for Robot Framework. Participants are expected to know basics of both Robot Framework and Python.


Required Robot Framework skills include knowing the overall architecture, how to run tests, and how to use keywords provided by libraries in test data. You are fine if you have ever used Robot Framework for anything. Alternatively you may want to consider participating the provided Robot Framework hands-on training

Needed Python skills include basic concepts such as creating and using functions, modules, classes and exceptions. Separate Python training is organized for people new to Python, and its agenda can be used as a more detailed list of the needed skills.
