Selenium 101 Workshop

Join Lindsey Baron and Stephen Hardisty at Etsy Labs in DUMBO for a small-group introduction to functional testing with Selenium.

Be sure to bring your laptop, as we'll be working through some exercises and learning with some hands-on applications of these tools.

In the mean time, check out this guide and script for getting your laptop ready for the meetup: http://bit.ly/ydYrIO 

This will help you ensure that you've got everything you need to complete the workshop exercises.

Also, be sure to install the Selenium IDE Firefox plugin, and maybe play around with it a bit before the workshop. http://bit.ly/xHE7fk 

You might want to go ahead and download a few other Selenium products, as well. Keep them in a folder somewhere so you can easily find them during the workshop.

This workshop will be in two parts: a very basic intro to Selenium, followed by an exploration of some of the tools that are often used with the Selenium library, including RSpec and Capybara. We'll have a 15 minute break between the two sections.

There have been a lot of requests for an intro to Selenium meetup, so this is our first shot at a (hopefully) ongoing workshop. Ideally, this will be happening regularly or semi-regularly, in small groups, with a focus on Selenium basics and beginner questions. Our regular Meetups will continue to happen, where we'll address more specific and advanced use cases and other cool stuff people are doing with Selenium.

In order to keep an intimate, small "class" environment, attendance to Selenium 101 events will be limited. But don't worry if you can't make it this time around. Just be sure to let us know you're interested, and we'll continue to schedule more Selenium 101 workshops.

    I just found out this took place some months ago... Are you going to repeat? I am interested in Selenium and there is nowhere to start from.

    Thanks to Lindsey, Stephen and Etsy! As a total non-developer this was mostly understandable, my only difficulty was installing Ruby on my machine. I THOUGHT I followed the instructions properly :P Sorry I'm such a n00b. Should the instructions take people like me into account?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
