Selenium is the most popular open-source test automation tool available in the market. In the last decade, its usage has dramatically increased in the IT sector across all types of organizations. The reason for its popularity is mainly because it supports multiple programming languages, test executions on multiple browsers and operating systems. In this book, we will learn about the different components of Selenium.

We will discuss the concepts of WebDriver and learn how to apply test automation concepts with it to automate the testing of our application. We will learn the process of recognizing the test objects on the screen and writing Selenium commands using Python as a programming language We will also discuss how to use design patterns like the page object model and data-driven testing to ensure building a robust test framework, which is modular and scalable in nature.

Step by step directions to get started with Selenium using Python as a programming language.
