Web Application Testing With Selenium

Scottish Developers

Glasgow Caledonian University , Glasgow, GB

The Talk

Testing is a fundamental part of the development process regardless of how you approach it however GUI's have always been trickier to test and web based UI's are some of the hardest. JavaScript, AJAX and browser compatibility are all things that make web UI functionality quite difficult and time consuming to test. Enter Selenium, a web application testing framework which makes the creation and automation of complex web user interface tests a joy.

This session will introduce you to Selenium and explain the core features of the framework before showing you, through live ASP.NET MVC demonstrations, how it can be harnessed in your own web development.

The Speaker

Andy Gibson is an Information Systems Developer for Rockstar North with a background in web application development including ASP.NET MVC, PHP and jQuery. He is always on the lookout for new technologies to play with and loves to learn what he can about things especially in the web development arena.

Keen to give back to the community, Andy has spoken at a number of community events including DeveloperDeveloperDeveloper! Scotland and is currently the Tayside Events Coordinator for Scottish Developers.

In his spare time (not that he has much), Andy enjoys table top wargamming, keeping up with the computer gaming industry and drinking malt scotch.
