After completing the course, you will be able to write automated tests using Selenium Webdriver.
You will understand the basics of working with Selenium WebDriver, i.e. how to navigate over multiple pages, click buttons, type into text boxes, select from dropdowns... do anything you want with web pages - automate your existing manual scenarios or repetitive actions at work. Course is very practical - you'll start with simplest exercises and over the course will move into more real-life and complicated tasks - automating existing test cases against real web pages you can find all over the internet. Throughout the course you'll also learn interview questions that will help you to pass automation engineer interview or be more successful at technical QA engineer interviews. Practice makes perfect... The path won't be easy - but it will be fun!

Course covers Automated Testing with Ruby, Cucumber and Selenium WebDriver.

• Slava Skryabin - Sr. Software Development Manager and Automation Architect, Oracle. Designed and created Java, Ruby, JavaScript-based automation frameworks from the ground up that test UI, mobile, web-services, DB and security penetration.
• Elina Sobol - Sr. Automation Engineer, Workday. Writing automated tests and Java and Ruby. Transitioned automation frameworks to use object oriented design.

We deal with automation on a daily basis at work and follow all market trends and new technologies. We coach engineers at work so they will be delivering for our teams, so we know to the teach quickly and effectively.
