1) Title: Introducing Selenium 4
Speaker: Simon Stewart
Selenium 4 is coming! The team have been working hard since the last 3.x release to add new features and improve the experience of developing with Selenium. In this talk, we’ll walk through updating an existing java Selenium test suite and scaling it up to run on Grid 4 hosted in the cloud. Not only will you see how easy the upgrade will be, you’ll also discover the new features added in Selenium 4.

2) Title: Modeling your learning & testing process
Speaker: Beren Van Daele
It's been said that Testing = Learning + EvaluationSince Software Testing has only been around for 60 years and Learning since before ancient Greece, it makes sense to research what we can about learning.Kolb is an educational scientist who came up with four different learning styles. These have been widely used in educational programs to make learning on a global scale more effective.Playing, Modeling, Theorizing, Experimenting.In Testing, as in learning, each of us have a preferred starting point. Yet it is only when we go through all four activities our learning becomes complete. What can we learn from these preferences so as to strengthen our testing?
