In this episode, you'll hear from five SeleniumConf Chicago 2023 speakers and/or project core committers about their upcoming talks, the reasons for their participation, and the benefits attendees can expect to gain from the conference. Additionally, our guests shed light on the Webdriver ecosystem – open-source projects that complement and add features and functionality to the browser automation capabilities that Selenium provides. They discuss the inaccuracies and misleading comparisons that pit Selenium against tools such as Cypress and Playwright. They also explain how using Selenium with Webdriver frameworks can help achieve parity with these tools while using real browsers.
Join us as we hear from Corina Pip, QA Lead at Deloitte Digital; David Burns, Head of Open Source Program Office at BrowserStack; Noemi Ferrara, Software Dev Engineer II-TEST at Amazon Spain; Simon Stewart, Selenium Project Core Contributor and creator of WebDriver, and Marcus Merrell Vice President of Technology Strategy for Sauce Labs, . Tune in to learn more about browser automation, the Webdriver ecosystem, and how the community can work together to achieve better results.
