SELENIUM IDE: THE NEXT GENERATION
- WITH SIMON STEWART
The Selenium project is composed of several different pieces.
For power users, Selenium Grid allows people to scale their tests horizontally, for developers there are bindings available in almost every known programming language.
But what about the case where you're not an experienced developer? Or when you want to bootstrap a new test suite? Or file a bug against a site and provide a reproducible test case? This is where Selenium IDE fits in perfectly.
In this webinar, Simon will explore the new Selenium IDE, looking at where it fits into the Selenium ecosystem, how to install it, and how to use it. He will also look at planned features that are coming your way, and the roadmap from the current alphas to a release.
After the presentation, Simon will answer questions in a live Q&A.
Selenium Project Lead & Creator of WebDriver.
Simon Stewart is the creator of WebDriver, the open source web application testing tool, as well as as well as the lead of the Selenium Project. WebDriver remains a hot topic as it is currently going through a W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) specification process, which Simon is a co-editor of.
At ThoughtWorks, Simon invented WebDriver.
At Google, he became the lead of the Selenium project and built the infrastructure required to run millions of browser-based tests every day.
At Facebook, Simon advocated for a monorepo, setup the mobile end-to-end testing frameworks, and lead the Buck build tool team, all of which helped slash the time from code to release.
He has been active in the world of Open Source since the turn of the millennium, has been described as "undeniably hairy", and holds a BSc in computer science from Nottingham University.
