How many times have your selenium test suites run beautifully on one browser, only to fail when run in any other browser? This is an extremely common problem faced when incorporating cross-browser tests into your test runs. Not all browser drivers are created equally, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create a robust suite with cross-browser tests. This talk presents strategies for making cross-browser tests invincible. It discusses key topics such as using as choosing the best locators for all browsers, explicit vs. implicit waits and how to leverage cloud based testing tools.
Over the past decade, eXtreme Programming practices like Test-Driven Development (TDD), Behavior Driven Developer (BDD), Refactoring and Continuous Integration have fundamentally changed software development processes and inherently how engineers work. Practitioners claim that it has helped them significantly improve their development speed, design quality and responsiveness to changing requirements.
