A Smattering of Selenium #157

Filed under: Uncategorized — adam goucher @ 5:46 pm UTC

Trying to find every excuse not to cut the grass … including apparently closing some browser tabs.

A Smattering of Selenium #156

Filed under: Uncategorized — adam goucher @ 2:30 am UTC

Brain fried from PyCon Canada 2013 and ‘some’ browser tab is misbehaving which means its time to start closing some of these.

The World’s Best Selenium Meetup

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tour de Dave @ 5:35 pm UTC

Note from Adam: This is a guest post from Dave Haeffner who, along with David Burns hatched this idea at SeConf2013.

Selenium Meetups are great, but…

Have you ever wanted to attend a Selenium Meetup but there’s not one near you? Or maybe there is but something’s come up and you can’t make it out that night? Or maybe the meetup near you struggles to get good speakers and have a consistent schedule? [Note from Adam; like, say, the Toronto one…]

We can do better

Well, what if there were a way to attend a meetup regardless of location?

And what if each meetup you attended was lined with core maintainers of the Selenium project?

And if you missed it, what if the whole thing was recorded and available for you to review at your leisure?

Well, now you can.

The World’s Best Selenium Meetup

Introducing Selenium Hangout — the world’s best and most accessible Selenium meetup. An entirely online meetup that leverages Google Hangouts and live streaming to YouTube. All meetups will be recorded and posted online afterwards.

Each meetup will contain a small panel of people from the Selenium Community (e.g. core committers, automation practitioners, etc.) and they will discuss various topics (TBD).

How to attend

Simply follow the SeleniumHangout Twitter account to find out more.

A ‘should be scripting, but brain stuck in neutral so closing some tabs’ edition of the Smattering.

Apparently today’s ‘wait for an email’ task is to whittle down the smattering queue some more.

A Sunday Smattering? Sure!

40-ish minutes until midnight eastern so that counts as two days in a row, right? Right?

A Smattering of Selenium #151

Filed under: Uncategorized — adam goucher @ 1:03 am UTC

Almost a month after the last one. Though it did nice to have it at 150 when people go to the blog … but a greater number is nicer.

A Smattering of Selenium #150

Filed under: Uncategorized — adam goucher @ 3:24 pm UTC

Yup, this smattering has very little to do with Selenium, but… 150!

A Smattering of Selenium #149

Too. Many. Tabs.

  • Internationalization and Localization Testing — yup, I agree.
  • 5 HTML5 Features you need to know – ‘download attribute’ and ‘datalist element’ might be a pain for us automators. Or at least cause a couple hours annoyance until we figure out the pattern.
  • Death to sleeps! Raise of Conditions! – expected conditions is likely the next thing to get more marketing this year
  • line_profiler and kernprof – profiling is black magic voodoo
  • Naught – ‘Naught is a toolkit for building Null Objects in Ruby.’
  • Replacing a substring of a string with Python – Raymond’s answers always simultaneously break my break and blow my mind.
  • When splitting an empty string in Python, why does split() return an empty list while split(‘\n’) returns [”]? – see what I mean?
  • So you want to build a framework – mine, but important. (I think.)
  • Locks, Actors, And STM In Pictures – ya! pictures!
  • Packaging a ruby script as an Windows exe using OCRA looks like something useful
