Selenium team member and Sauce Labs engineer Santiago Suarez Ordoñez will be visiting us and giving a talk on optimizing Selenium for execution performance. His abstract is:
"This talk will cover test writing tips gathered over the years from helping hundreds of Selenium users and engineers make their tests run faster and more reliably, independently of the technology stack used. We’ll be talking about things such data independence, making atomic tests and generating application state. No particular Selenium knowledge is required, aside from knowing what automated testing is and having experience writing and executing tests."
Selenium team member and local Bostonian Leo Laskin will be giving a talk on moving beyond XPath and discovering CSS selectors. This will be a crash course in CSS selectors and how they can clean up & fortify your tests.
