Selenium Webdriver Training | Learn This Open Source Browser Automation Tool

Selenium Webdriver Course Description

WebDriver is a web automation framework that allows you to execute your tests against different browsers, not just Firefox (unlike Selenium IDE). WebDriver also enables you to use a programming language in creating your test scripts.

Selenium is used for automating Web Applications. In this course, you will experience to work with Data Driven Framework and Keyword Driven Framework and perform Cross browser testing. Selenium IDE, Selenium RC, Selenium WebDriver and Selenium-Grid are covered during the course. You will learn to perform tests on multiple machines simultaneously running on different Operating Systems, integrate other frameworks like JUnit and TestNG with Selenium.

    This is great

    I really love the course editor in LearnPress. It is never easier when creating courses, lessons, quizzes with this one. It's the most useful LMS WordPress plugin I have ever used. Thank a lot! Testing quiz is funny, I like the sorting choice question type most.
