While they might not be the greatest and most complex tools, they’ll surely do the trick for those who don’t have the time or resources to invest in a robust automation solution.

Selenium IDE is a test automation tool that has many capabilities. Last year, I shared my insights into this automation solution at Programmers’ Week 2021, Cognizant Softvision’s largest tech event. During the presentation, I gave a quick rundown into Selenium IDE, including Selenium IDE’s capabilities. I also gave a live demo on how to create an automated test. There’s also a little something extra toward the end, something that might actually save you some money.

So, what exactly is Selenium IDE? What can it do and how does it do it? Watch my full presentation and find out:

Even if you have no prior test automation knowledge, you can be up and running within five minutes. I hope you find this presentation helpful and that you’ll be able to integrate it in your daily routine. Happy automating!
