Introduction to Selenium

Knowledge of Selenium, the industry-standard tool for testing web applications, is a much sought after skill in today’s world of test automation. If you want to learn Selenium, then this full-day tutorial provides a great start. Byron Katz shows you how to build test automation using Selenium. But he doesn’t stop there. He uses his years of experience to show you how to build automation that is clean, robust, and easy to maintain. He introduces other tools that work with Selenium to help manage the data used to drive your tests, evaluate JavaScript-heavy applications, manage your test configuration, and make it very easy to run a single test across multiple—and even mobile—browsers. Finally, he talks about workflows for integrating this type of testing into your software development lifecycle. If you want to get started with Selenium automation, this is a great place to start.

Special Note: Familiarity with Java or Open Source Programming and a laptop with administrator access are required. Pre-load this software before the tutorial:

Byron Katz has been in love with computers since his father bought the family a Commodore 64. A degreed architect, he found his way back to software development in 2010, and his career has included roles as a quality assurance lead, a full-stack developer, consultant, and sales engineer. Byron has experience at software firms ranging from start-ups to large enterprises to government projects. His primary project experience has been as a full-stack developer of multi-tier web projects in Java and .Net, but most recently Byron has had the opportunity to practice DevOps. He enjoys making seemingly-difficult concepts accessible to a larger audience, and his agenda is to persuade others that the costs of quality, simplicity, and beauty pay for themselves in the long run.
