Selenium Grid can be a bit daunting to get up and running. Starting it is quite easy, but using it effectively can require pulling in third-party tools. In this workshop we’ll cover how to run your grid effectively, using best practices culled from several large grid installations.
1. What got you started/interested in Testing?
I actually got into testing by accident. But I got really interested in testing while I was working in it, it was interesting to me how you needed to think about different problems than the ones you think when you are actually building the application code. To me, nowadays, what attracts me more from testing, is that it is a field with a lot of potential, that needs to be explored much more, but somehow only a few of us are interested in it.
2. What has been your best moment/highlight working with Selenium?
While I was working for a while in my first open source project, Zalenium, I decided to start contributing to the different projects in the SeleniumHQ GitHub org. After some months of contributions, I got an invitation to join the SeleniumHQ, which has been the highligh of my work with Selenium.
3. What do you think is the biggest challenge faced by Software Testers today?
To focus on fundamentals. We are getting distracted with tools that promise to do everything for us, and we do not think first what we want to test and how we want to test it. Many people want testing to be for free, but I think that to have free things you need to put some effort into it first.
4. What is your advice to testers, who are new to automation?
To start small, to have a small scope of what needs to be automated, and before that, check that the test case needs to be automated or not. After that, automate one test case, run it locally, run it with a browser farm in your own network or the cloud, and then run it in a CI environment. When you are done with that, you can start automating the second test case. After a while, they should be solid and trustable. So, in general, prefer to automate less cases, but have them all being trustable automated test cases.
5. Tell us about the session(s) you will be presenting at the conference and why did you choose those topics?
I will be joining the committers pannel, and I will be there because I work and contribute to Selenium on a daily basis-
6. What are some of the key takeaways from your session(s)?
People will learn about the internals how we work and what we are doing to improve the project on a daily basis.
7. Which sessions are you most looking forward to attending at Selenium Conf?
To be honest, all of them,
8. Any personal message/remarks you want to share with the Testing community in Asia?
Focus on getting a test strategy first, when we have a testing strategy first, the tools we need for it will come as an afterthought.
