I didn’t know there was such a thing as a yearly Selenium conference, after all this time implementing a Selenium test automation project at work, until I came across a recent blog post by the Mozilla Web QA Team, enumerating their thoughts about the event. I wished I was there (and I wish there were events like this here in my country), especially when I saw some of the keynote presentations and talks they were able to film. I must say that they were very interesting. 🙂
Here are links to these videos, re-posted from the Mozilla Web QA blog:
- Selenium: State of the Union. Fun and exciting keynote talk by Simon Stewart of Facebook, about where Selenium has been, where it is now, and where it is moving forward.
- Mobile End-to-End Testing at Scale: Stable, Useful, Easy – Pick Three –. Inspiring talk from Remi Chaintron of Facebook. Yes, end-to-end automated UI testing is hard, but it does work.
- Docker Selenium. I love the way Marek Jastrzebski of HomeAway talks, how it feels very accommodating. Anyway, Docker seems to be very useful. I’ll try to figure out how this works in Windows.
- Distributed Automation using Selenium Grid/AWS/Auto-scaling. I was bored by Ragavan Ambighanantha’s talk (of Expedia), but I wanted to know the results of his experiments with Selenium Grid parallelization combined with Amazon Web Services cloud-based testing.
