A few questions and a small plug.
There’s quite a lot of people in this group but very few posts. Of the posts that are here I don’t see much talk about people using Selenium, maybe the problems they’ve encountered, etc.
So, who’s actually using the Selenium tools in their organisations or projects they’re working on?
If you’re in the group because you’re interested in exploring the use of Selenium tools:
--what’s stopping you using them?
-- what would your set-up look like if you did start using them? (which tools, what language)
I’ve submitted a book proposal recently with the draft title of “An Introduction to Web Automation with Selenium & Ruby”, in part because of what I’m seeing in this group. That is people interested in the idea of using Selenium tools but for some reason not being able to crack on and do so. I suggest that reason is there’s a lot that’s unclear about how to do so and a lack of definitive approaches being shared.
It seems to me there are one or two ‘experts’ who like to present themselves as such^ but share little the community can use. My book is an attempt to address that but I want to keep re-asking; why is there not more discussion and take-up of Selenium tools if they’re all so (allegedly) easy to use?
I look forward to your thoughts and feedback.
p.s. As I’m researching here I’m sure you’ll understand if you see this question on a number of other community sites.
^ Not a dig, just an observation in terms of 'sharing with the community'.
