In this Aspire proficiency journey, we will take a deep dive in using Selenium for automated testing. After completing this journey a learner will be able to; implement automated testing solutions with Selenium throughout the software development lifecycle, create and implement test cases for Selenium for front-end, back-end, and mobile software solutions, implement different types of automation techniques with Selenium and scale those for an organization's needs, and implement solutions using the Selenium Web driver framework.

Track 1: Automated Testing

In this Aspire track, the focus will be on automated testing with Selenium. First you will start by setting up Selenium for automated testing and get familiar with the Selenium IDE. Next, we will explore using the Selenium WebDriver, Selenium grid and patterns, and testing with the Selenium framework. Next you will explore component testing, automating browser windows and authentication tests, and managing synchronization and page navigation. This will be followed by security test automation using Selenium. Then the focus will be on managing modern application components using Selenium and managing data elements using Python and Selenium. This will be followed by Integrating TestNG and Selenium and applying BDD and TDD using Selenium. The focus then will be Selenium test enhancement using BrowserStack and then database and log management in Selenium testing. The Selenium journey then will be completed with use cases for Web app component automated testing and testing single-page applications.
