San Francisco Selenium Meetup Group

Learning and meeting with developers and testers that use Selenium to test their web applications.

The SF Selenium Meetup is an open forum where Selenium users of all skill levels can come to communicate, learn, network, or just have a good time. We meet on a monthly basis and generally have speaker from major software and web companies in the Bay Area. Lively discussions or Q&A for hours afterwards.

Our focus is in Selenium but our topics encompass related topics of interest, such as Agile testing, Test-Driven Development, Continuous Integration, building test scripts in Ruby, Python, Java, PHP, and C#; and much more.

Events coming up

We don't have any upcoming events for this user group. Do you know this group? If so, why not submit a future event? We also support iCal, EventBrite and Meetup feeds.
