• North Dallas: Using Selenium to Test Web Applications + Casual Code & Connect

    ~~ Using Selenium to Test Your Web Applications ~~ “Selenium automates browsers.” is the first statement made on the Selenium home page, https://docs.seleniumhq.org, when defining the tool. Selenium can and is used in a plethora of ways, web scraping, bug reproduction, to name a couple. We will discuss one, web testing. Selenium allows users to automate the user actions on the web, providing a robust and powerful way to test your applications and as a web developer, it is vital to test. Test features, bugs, new projects, legacy code, migrations, etc. This tool allows developers to automate this process. So we will discuss how to setup Selenium, some of the cool things you can do with the drivers and where to find additional information to further your education. ~~ About the Speaker ~~ Margaret started about 5 years ago, learning basic web development technology such as HTML, JavaScript, etc. She leveled up and went to a boot camp to gain more expertise. Currently she's just coding. She enjoys reading usually non fiction, some thrillers and watching comedies. She's big on education, so she's learn new skills, tech, or just learning different ideologies. She was once told, “the day you stop learning is the day you stop living,” and it has become part of her dogma, so learning for her is a big deal.
