Testing JavaScript: Remote Control Browsing with Mike Subelsky

Feature Presentation

"Remote Control Browsing with Selenium, PhantomJS, and CasperJS" by Mike Subelsky

Mike will demonstrate how to use these three technologies for webscraping, screen capture, browser simulation, and automated JavaScript testing.

About Mike: I'm a Baltimore-based entrepreneur, web programmer, and devops guy. My tools of choice are Ruby and JavaScript but I consider myself a jack-of-all-trades. In 2007 I co-founded a web startup called OtherInbox.com, which was acquired in 2012. I also cofounded ignitebaltimore.com, baltimorehackathon.com, bigimprov.org, and rubystudyhall.com.

    My first meet up group meeting ever was a pleasure. Great location, people, organization. There was a brief period to socialize before the speakers began presenting. I picked up some good tips and learned some new concepts along the way.

    I'm planning to run some exercises so you can play with Phantom/Casper - definitely bring a laptop with Phantom and Casper installed if you can. Should be pretty easy, Phantom doesn't have any dependencies.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
