About the author:

Ben Lau has worked as a software and build engineer since the mid 90s. He began his career as an intern for a major university in Southern California, working on virtual reality training systems, and continued there for almost 10 years, working on a variety of projects. After leaving the university to join a spin-off developing language training applications for the military, he began to specialize in build and release engineering and also branched out into automated testing. He is currently employed at a mid-sized startup in the Los Angeles area, working as their build and release manager.

Sikuli is an open-source research project originally started at the User Interface Design Group at MIT. Sikuli automates anything that is seen on the screen. It uses image recognition to identify and control GUI components. It is useful when there is no easy access to a GUI's internal or source code.

Instant Sikuli Test Automation presents a series of examples that build on one another to demonstrate the key features provided by Sikuli. Readers will learn additional techniques that will allow them to construct effective automated application test suites quickly and easily. The book is filled with examples needed to write effective tests, manage test suites, execute tests, and generate reports.Towards the end of this book, readers will become more confident in their ability to execute test suites and generate reports using Sikuli.

This book is aimed at automation and testing professionals who want to use Sikuli to automate GUIs. For more information about the book please visit the Packt book page.
