In the last few Selenium tutorials, we discussed various commonly and popularly used commands in WebDriver, handling web elements like Web Tables, Frames and handling exceptions in Selenium scripts. We discussed each of these commands with sample code snippets and examples so as to make you capable of using these commands effectively whenever you are encountered with similar situations. Amongst the commands we discussed in the previous tutorial, few of them owe utmost importance. As we move ahead in the…

In 2018, Nick Elprin, CEO and Co-Founder of Domino Data Lab, said, “Sixty percent of companies plan to double the size of their data science teams in 2018. Ninety percent believe data science contributes to business innovation. However, less than 9% can actually quantify the business impact of all their models, and only 11% can claim more than 50 predictive models working in production.” The figures for converting data science projects into corporate business success stories hasn’t…

A lot of teams have the tendency to view test automation as a way of speeding up delivery of software as this is often the perceived bottleneck within the team, but if they were to take a deeper look at their development practices as a whole, they may get better results. Preventing bugs Testing, and especially test automation at the UI level, has a tendency to occur at the end of the software delivery pipeline,…

After a puzzling standoff with California’s Department of Motor Vehicles in December in which Uber refused to apply for a $150 permit to test a self-driving vehicle fleet in San Francisco, the company has reversed course and is preparing to complete the application process. The ride-hailing service, which shipped its initial fleet of 16 automated Volvo XC90 SUVs out of San Francisco to Arizona just before Christmas after the DMV revoked registrations to operate them in California, is readying new vehicles for…

A lot of practical realities like cost and operational reliability mean that the kind of go-anywhere full self-driving capability people like Elon Musk aim for is unlikely to come to the mainstream anytime in the near future. Even the sort of limited geofenced capabilities being piloted by companies like Waymo and Aptiv will probably remain restricted for years to come. There is however, a very interesting form of level 4 automation being prepared by Bosch…

Jack and Jill are both managers of software companies with the task of starting a test automation process and testing similar customer-facing web-based applications. Both are focusing on the ROI advocated by the time to market and cost savings. Jack’s approach is to hire junior-level developers and to use open-source test automation technology. Jill’s approach is to start a test automation culture implemented by experienced consultants. Jack’s benefit is cost savings — his advantage is lower hourly rates and no-cost software. Jill’s benefit is…

1. Hire a Dedicated Automation Engineer or Team This is a basic thing to do. Don’t ask your manual testers to indulge in test automation. If you do want them to do test automation, then free them from manual testing work. Test automation is a full-time job. For this, you need dedicated resources. I recommend building a test automation team consisting of at least one automation architect. You can hire multiple automation engineers to work…
