Find out how to set up the test-writing framework, WebDriver, and Selenium Grid, which allows you to distribute the testing load and run tests against a remote server. Learn best practices to write effective tests using variables and functions, and to organize tests into suites that can scale over time. Instructor Meaghan Lewis—a QA engineer at GitHub—also explains the test pyramid paradigm, which details an ideal way to balance unit, integration, and UI testing.

- [Megan] Selenium is a powerful framework for testing web applications and the UI. That's what this course is all about. Hi, I'm Megan Lewis. I'm an avid Selenium fan and have been an active user for years. I also speak at conferences and blog about software testing. In this course, I'll show you the basics of Selenium. I'll being by discussing the background of the Selenium project, then I'll show you how to write and run test with Selenium WebDriver. After that, I'll demonstrate setting up a Selenium grid instance to run tests against a remove server.
And finally, I'll discuss best practices for test design, organization, and maintainability. Without further ado, let's get started.
