Sneak Peek into Selenium 3.0

Sneak Peek into Selenium 3.0

WEBINAR SUMMARY

At a 2013 conference session, Simon Stewart, the Selenium project lead and inventor of WebDriver, announced that Selenium 3.0, a widely used tool for user-focused automation of mobile and web apps, would be released by Christmas. Three years after that announcement, Selenium 3.0 still hasn't been released, but this month we got more information about Selenium 3.0 and a more likely release time frame. On 25th May 2016, in a webinar, Stewart did reveal further details about Selenium 3.0. The webinar only had room for 1,000 participants, but the registration list was well over 10,000.

We at Gallop Solutions, Silver Sponsors of Selenium project, bring you the highlights of the announcement and provide insights into roadmap of Selenium project in our webinar.

In this webinar we covered:

  • Big changes regarding old Selenium core libraries and focus on Webdriver API
  • Impact or changes to WebDriver API of Selenium 2.0
  • Changes in the Selenium Java APIs
  • Advantages of having W3C WebDriver specifications
  • Increasing importance of browser vendors
  • Roadmap of Selenium

This webinar is based on things we have known from our direct references and information obtained in SeleniumHQ webinars. Folks attending the webinar would gain insights on Selenium 3.0 & what changes are needed to be done to the existing Selenium suites to make them 3.0 ready. We will also cover a peek view into the Selenium roadmap beyond 3.0, that is, 4.0 and 5.0. View the webinar recording below.

Accelerating Digital Transformation Journey with Digital Assurance QA

WEBINAR SUMMARY

Enterprises are undergoing a rapid Digital transformation journey as digitization has become a mandate today as opposed to just being an innovative trend. Based on Industry estimates, spending on “Digital transformation” initiatives will increase to 40% to 50% of the overall IT budget by 2020. CXOs need to deliver on these initiatives in a high speed, iterative, and continuous manner while delivering quality @ speed.

Delivering with high quality @ speed in digital transformation initiatives requires a completely new way of approaching testing because of the trending development approaches (Agile, DevOps), Technologies (Social, Mobile, Cloud, Big Data, Analytics & IoT) & Tools (Significant open source seamlessly coupled with commercial).

Digital Assurance QA calls for the need for a new testing role titled “Digital Test Engineer”. To assure high quality customer experience in digital era, along with traditional types of tests, Digital Test Engineer is required to perform tests like, Social Media Web Services integration tests, Omni Channel testing, A/B testing with multiple variants, High volume & high velocity data tests, Customer Sentiment analysis & experience testing, Devices/sensors/Wearables testing, Big Data testing (Capture, Ingestion, processing & visualization), Responsive Web Design testing (Browsers, wearables, tablets, mobiles etc..), Machine to Machine testing and testing in production.

In this webinar, the presenter, Sai Chintala, Senior Vice President, Global Pre-Sales has addressed all of the above topics and more, such as:

Webinar on Business Transformation using Test Advisory Services

ABOUT WEBINAR

Today, in the 'age of customer', businesses are increasingly challenged to become digital and be available everywhere and every time. This puts a huge demand on their IT function and thereby on its entire value chain and especially on its Testing function which is crucial to the overall success of the product. To thrive in these markets, organizations have to transform from traditional ways of working to new age models of delivering high performance outcomes. While Business Transformation is the key to meeting the market demands and also to assure a higher ROI, the journey of transformation is fraught with many risks, which if not handled well may de-rail the entire program and its efforts.

Having helped many clients in their transformational journeys, we at Gallop have designed a robust framework that can help in addressing the challenges and risks. Our framework is designed such that any transformation journey is first kicked off with a holistic assessment of the testing function to understand the key strengths and opportunities for improvements. We also provide a detailed set of practical recommendations along with a roadmap to achieve the business objectives.

Continuous Integration Using Microsoft Tools Right before Your Eyes

Continuous Integration Using Microsoft Tools Right before Your Eyes

ABOUT WEBINAR

Development teams worldwide are adopting "agile" methodologies to manage change and to improve software quality. These methodologies promote continuous integration as a practice to build and test software products incrementally as new features are included, bugs are fixed, and code is refactored with much reduced build and release cycles.

This adoption of Continuous Integration (CI) attempts to assure quality while expediting the entire SDLC cycle and reducing the time to market. CI thus plays a key role in implementing auto code compilation, auto unit testing and auto build deployment process. Since QA is also an integral part of the whole SDLC, it has become obvious that the regression testing should also become part of CI.

The Gallop Webinar exclusively explores CI using Microsoft Test Tools:

  • When should you invest in CI
  • Ideal mix of Functional & Regression Testing as part of CI
  • Overall CI infrastructure & Microsoft Test Tool Suite
  • Test Tools available for Continuous Integration
  • How to implement Functional & Regression Testing as part of CI
