If you want to learn Selenium, then this full-day tutorial provides a great start. Titus Fortner 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 and easy to maintain. Titus 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, Titus 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.
