Background


The Wikimedia Foundation Inc. is a nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to encouraging the growth, development and distribution of free, multilingual content and to providing the full content of these wiki-based projects to the public free of charge. The Wikimedia Foundation operates in some of the largest collaboratively edited reference projects in the world, including Wikipedia, one of the 10 most visited websites in the world.

Business challenge


Due to the scale of the web properties it manages it is impossible for Wikimedia Foundation to carry out manual testing of its applications. Thus, it needed to initiate a project to automate testing of its websites.

Calcey’s deliverables


Calcey’s testing team created a test suite using Selenium for a range of test cases provided by the client. Cross browser testing for compatibility was automated as well and the test framework was deployed on Wikimedia’s staging environment. Finally, capturing of test results and generation of reports was also set up to complete automation of the testing process.
