Selenium for Test Automation

Learn key facets and true test automation capabilities of Selenium from the developers of Selenium GRID.

Learning to automate test coverage for application workflow is one of the biggest opportunities to decrease errors, increase team capacity, and ultimately drive innovation throughout IT. Whether you are integrating test automation into a DevOps practice or continuous IT operations, or simply seeking more efficiency with QA and security, using Selenium to automate is one of the most popular ways to build the automation toolchain.

This two-day Selenium training course, designed by Michael Palotas, one of the creators of Selenium GRID, provides unparalleled insights into the true capabilities of Selenium. You will learn key facets to utilize WebDriver, JUnit, TestNG and be able to automate any web-based application on your own. In addition, you will learn how to improve coverage and reduce execution to get faster feedback, as well as implement various frameworks.

During this course, you will gain expertise by lecture learning and then immediately practicing in hands-on labs. For each topic discussed, there is an accompanying practical exercise. You will build a robust framework and create reusable components to improve productivity.

Exercises and provided coding samples are in Java for this course.
