Python Automation and Testing


Do you spend too much time manually testing your user interfaces? Automation is the answer. Python and Selenium offer a simple but powerful framework to script any testing. Here, instructor Bhoomika Agarwal shows how to use the combination of Selenium WebDriver and Python code to automate web UI tests. Follow along and learn how to locate elements, navigate pages, test user interactions with forms and drag-and-drop elements, and use waits to control test timing and execution. The lessons are practical and can be immediately applied to your development workflow. Take the challenges included along the way to practice your new skills. Topics include: Identify the steps for installing Python. Recognize the browsers supported by Selenium. Explain how to find an element when a unique ‘id’ is not available. Understand the purpose of the “send_keys.” Recall which exception is raised when a function tries to locate an element not yet loaded into the DOM.
