Why this course?
Do you want to learn how real automation frameworks are built using Selenium by following 50+ industry best practices?
Did you learn Selenium in the past, but still figuring out how to go about developing a framework that is Readable, Maintainable and Scalable?
Is your team struggling with implementing automation frameworks that really works?
Did you learn many bad automation practices in the past that simply doesn’t work and want to unlearn all those practices?
Then you are at the right place. This course is exactly what you were looking for!
- I’ll take you through an exciting journey of developing Selenium automation framework from scratch using a dedicated live e-commerce practice website!
- I’ll teach you 50+ industry best practices to follow while developing Selenium automation frameworks.
- I’ll teach you about design patterns and how to efficiently use OOP concepts in the framework.
- I’ll show you how to integrate APIs with the automation framework and use those to skip login through UI, to set the test data and to set the application state. All of these are Selenium recommended best practices.
- I’ll show you how to follow Single Responsibility Principle (SRP) and Do Not Repeat Yourself principle (DRY) which are a must while developing the framework
We will start with the bad practices first. This is what most of us do when we first start with developing automation frameworks.
Then I’ll make you unlearn all these bad practices step-by-step by implementing many of the industry best practices using LIVE coding. I’ll not only explain you the “what”, but also the “why” and “how” while explaining each and every concept.
By the end of this course, you are surely going to be confident enough to build Selenium automation frameworks from scratch for any live website. You are going to think like an automation lead, plan and design the automation framework, write optimized and clean code and follow good programming and automation practices.
