Selenium For Fun & For Profit – Combined Fox Valley Computing/Fox Valley Drupal
• IN-DEPTH SESSION – "Selenium For Fun & For Profit" Ever wanted to automate tedious web site testing? How about create a screen scraper that works on complex sites that use lots of Javascript ? Their tasks can be done relatively quickly and easily using your favorite programming language. Tom Purl will show us how to do all this and more using Selenium, a framework for automating tasks in a web browser. His talk will include: •• The what & why of Selenium •• Automating a repetitive task in a Wordpress application using Python •• Automating some UI tests with the Robot Framework (which uses Selenium) robotframework.org •• See the intro session from October (static.tompurl.com/selenium-lightning-talk) • IN-DEPTH SESSION – "WordPress | Drupal Comparison" Mike Hale, a local WordPress Guru, will present some of the pros of WP, and what's new in the future, (can you say Gutenberg). Bob Snodgrass will present a “work in progress" project build in Drupal 8 while featuring highlights of the the site functionality and advantages provided by the Drupal Content Management Framework and its community. • LIGHTNING TALKS – various members – if you'd like to be included in this month's LT or an upcoming month's, let the organizers know.
