If you are new to Selenium test automation, or even if you’ve already mastered it, in this session you’ll learn end-to-end testing with a new automation framework – Selenide! What is Selenide and how does it speed up testing? Agile teams tend to struggle with getting development and testing in sync. Many teams run mini-waterfalls, where testers get working code a few days before the end of the sprint. With Selenium these teams are ending up writing lot of boilerplate, buggy automation code, which will eventually become a nightmare to maintain. Selenide is an open-source library that can make a huge impact on and accelerate software delivery by introducing a concise API, shorter expressions, and many other capabilities. It is a wrapper around Selenium WebDriver and is designed to solve problems that Selenium cannot address.
This session is open to both beginner and experienced automation engineers who are new to Selenide.
Attendees will learn:
- Key features of Selenide with which testers can maintain their automation code in a more simple, easy-to-read, and maintainable fashion.
- The most effective test automation design patterns with Selenide.
- How to use Selenide with Cucumber for BDD.
- Execution and generation of reports.
