Commitment to Open Source

HasGeek believes in open source as the binding force of our community. If you are describing a codebase for developers to work with, we’d like it to be available under a permissive open source license. If your software is commercially licensed or available under a combination of commercial and restrictive open source licenses (such as the various forms of the GPL), please consider picking up a sponsorship. We recognize that there are valid reasons for commercial licensing, but ask that you support us in return for giving you an audience. Your session will be marked on the schedule as a sponsored session.


If you are interested in conducting a hands-on session on any of the topics falling under the themes described above, please submit a proposal under the workshops section. We also need you to tell us about your past experience in teaching and/or conducting workshops.

CasperJS - Behavioral Test for web application

Submitted Jul 30, 2015

To explore CasperJS as a framework for automation testing for the web applications.


Most of the times, all you want is an automated way to ensure that your application is functioning properly at a high level. But do you really need to write mountains of Unit tests to achieve this? Moreover, can unit tests even achieve this at all? And when it comes to front-end behavior, how do you write effective tests?

CasperJS is an answer of all the questions mentioned above. CasperJS is a navigation scripting & testing utility for PhantomJS and SlimerJS written in JavaScript.

In this session, we will demonstrate:

-PhantomJS and CasperJS Introduction

-Features of CasperJS

-Playing with Casper API

-Headless demo with real world example

-How to test-

--HTTP authentication

--Mouse events

--Submitting forms

--Impersonating user agents

--Making AJAX requests

-How to minimize regressing testing with CasperJS

Target Audience:
Team Leads/Technical Architect/Project Managers/Developers/QA Folks
