What’s the focus of this course?

Selenium training  has been designed to help developers and manual testers  learn how to automate web applications with a robust framework, and  integrate it within the DevOps processes of an organization. The course contains a lot of real-life examples and situations to demonstrate how to use Selenium WebDriver effectively.

The training starts with a refresher course on core Java concepts and covers the basics of Test Automation and its importance in the industry. The course includes basic as well as advance concepts of WebDriver and other tools/frameworks like TestNG, Maven, AutoIT, Sikuli, log4j.

Special focus is given on  building a robust framework with Page Object Design Pattern, Data Driven Approach, and creating reusable components to improve productivity.

The course also covers Selenium Grid, which along with TestNG helps achieve parallel execution to improve coverage and reduce execution time for faster feedback.

Appium is an open source test automation framework for use with native, hybrid, and mobile web applications.

The course includes a  project where you have to create the test automation for an eCommerce application with a framework and reporting.
