Selenium for Test Automation

Duration: 2 days

General description

The goal of the course is to enable the participants to automate tests with Selenium. It provides an introduction to Selenium by explaining the concept and the technology behind it, different ways Selenium can be used, its advantages and limitations. Then we proceed to introducing the participants to recording, editing, and executing, and exporting scripts with Selenium IDE. After that, the class turns to working with Selenium WebDriver in Visual Studio; knowing how to do it in Visual Studio will also enable the participants to develop Selenium WebDriver scripts with Java development environments, e.g., Eclipse of IntelliJ. The course has multiple exercises which all consist in creating, editing, and enhancing Selenium scripts.
