Workshop: Selenium for Beginners

Learning Selenium for functional test automation sounds like a big challenge. You may have heard of Selenium? Or perhaps, you are faced with the challenge of implementing it at work? Maybe your company wants all QA testers to automate? Or, you may have used it in the past and decided it’s just not your cup of tea.

Peter Kim has a knack for training others in a fun and very simple, yet powerful way. His workshops are focused on teaching the latest concepts with his audience and clients in mind. As a co-organizer at one of the largest Agile Software Test Meeups, in DC, with 1000+ members, he enjoys sharing and learning from others. Yes, he’s taught his teenage nephew to be a rock star QA automation engineer; he has assisted his “flunky” best friend escape his dead-end job to embrace a career as a lucrative automation engineer in only 6 months! He’s also taught Selenium and automation design/strategy at Fortune 500 companies as well as getting startups up to speed on automation strategies.

He enjoys uncovering the true simplicity on how to teach (Selenium) in a fun and thought-provoking workshop which will include a conspiracy theory designed to lead others into believing Selenium execution is a difficult task.
