Selenium IDE Is Making a Comeback—Can Codeless Testing Scale?

Add to calendar

The rise, fall, and resurrection of Selenium IDE begs the question: Can codeless testing actually scale? Test automation folklore is full of horror stories of failed attempts to apply record-playback tools to perform UI-based functional testing. Putting these stories aside for a moment, let's take an objective look at record-playback tools and compare them with programming-based automation tools in order to evaluate their applicability to functional and visual test automation. Join Moshe Milman as he dives into a hands-on demo of the new Selenium IDE, reviews some of its new capabilities, and goes over the latest open source and commercial tools and trends in the codeless test automation space. Find answers to questions around codeless test automation and discover best practices that will help you to scale your automated tests.
