Selenium WebDriver - C#

The course covers all the essential principles of using the Selenium WebDriver automation framework in Microsoft Visual Studio. Designed for beginners as well as testers with previous automation experience, it takes the newcomer to Selenium through all the basic techniques of writing effective automated web tests. Throughout the course, practical examples are demonstrated, and the delegates get to practice what they have learned in each chapter against a Web training application.

By the end of the course you should have a thorough understanding of how to develop reliable, robust Selenium Web Tests using Selenium WebDriver and other tools.
