London Selenium Meetup Group Message Board › Topics for future events

Topics for future events

Dave H.

Post #: 5
The first event was a social one, and topics of conversation ranged considerably. For future events it's likely that we will have one or more demonstrations on a specific area. Let me know if there's anything in particular you'd like to learn (or demonstrate) with Selenium.

I have a few ideas for topics below:

  • Stop pausing - testing AJAX with Selenium by waiting instead of pausing
  • Minimising impact of UI changes using the UI-Elements map
  • Introduction to locating elements by XPath and CSS
  • Integrating Selenium tests into a continuous build
  • Battle of the testing frameworks - what's available and how to choose

Once we've got a good list of topics I'll put together a poll to help decide what we should do at the next event.

I think yesterday was a good start and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Couple of ideas for future meetings:

  • introducing Selenium to an organization. Challenges, steps, selling Selenium to management.
  • testing best practices
  • how to balance effort required to create tests with benefits

Another couple of suggestions:

  • Selenium in the Grid - How to get Selenium Grid working, and how to test in the Cloud
  • Selenium vs QTP - What are the main differences? The pros and cons of each

How about something simple like Hints & Tips, quick little things people have found worked for them? That kind of thing.

How about a discussion around selenium 2.0 features? Webdriver?

I'm thinking of making it a Selenium 2 meetup. Keep your suggestions coming in, hopefully I'll be scheduling something soon!
