Hearing, Seeing, and Doing Selenium Test Automation

You can't learn to be a Selenium test automator just by hearing someone talk about it; you have to do it. In this short video, I explain how RBCS imparts real test automation skills using a mix of lecture, examples, and hands-on exercises.

Becoming a Test Automation Professional for Free on the Internet? Right!

I had a conversation with someone whose management had suggested that he have his test team learn Selenium from free videos on the Internet, then they could automate all of their tests with it.  So, show of hands, how many people think that this strategy has any chance of success?  What right-minded person would decide to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of effort in letting untrained people, with no experienced leadership or professionally-designed test architecture, build a test automation suite?  Would you pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for a house built by people who learned everything they know about carpentry and electrical wiring on YouTube?

If you need help educating your team on Selenium test automation, and putting a smart test architecture in place, let us know.  We can help with that.

Avoid Useless Knowledge

It's fair to say that the more we test, the more we learn, but testing needs to focus on learning (and telling people about) the important aspects of the system. Not all questions deserve answers.

Is Your Agile Testing Not Feeling Very Agile?

Many of our clients are using Agile methods to develop software.  However, even now, almost 20 years after the Agile Manifesto was signed, some people are still struggling with fitting software testing best practices into their Agile development teams.  Does this sound familiar?  If so, don't despair.  We have worked with clients' testers and test teams from the early days of Agile, helping them achieve effective and efficient testing within Agile development processes, including XP, Scrum, Kanban, Continuous Delivery, and Continuous Deployment.  RBCS President Rex Black lead the effort to write the highly successful ISTQB syllabus, the Foundation Level Agile Tester, and co-wrote a book on the topic, so you can be confident that we can help you put into action techniques and concepts that are well-proven and widely accepted.
