Posted Feb 24th, 2016

Webinar Date: Feb 24th, 2016

What is Selenium? Why should you use it? And how do you use it successfully? In this talk Dave Haeffner, a Selenium expert and active member of the Selenium project, will answer these questions as he steps through the why, how, and what of Selenium (the open-source automated web-testing tool for functional testing).

He'll also discuss how to start from nothing and build out a well-factored, maintainable, resilient, fast and scalable set of tests in Java. These will test your app across all of the browsers you care about, while exercising relevant functionality that matters to your business.

Talk takeaways:

  • What Selenium is, where it came from, and where it's heading
  • Decompose an existing web application to identify what to test
  • Pick the best scripting language for you and your team
  • Write maintainable and reusable Selenium tests that will be cross-browser compatible and performant
  • Build an integrated feedback loop to automate test runs and find issues fast
  • Setup your own infrastructure or connect to a cloud provider
  • Dramatically improve test times with parallelization
