In the field of testing technologies, it isn’t very often that we see a tool survive and grow richer in over a decade. Just recently, Selenium completed 10 years, and this article takes a look at the ecosystem that Selenium has nurtured.
Agile and Selenium
The agile manifesto has been around longer than Selenium, and more teams are looking towards the agile form of software development to reduce their feedback cycles and practice continuous delivery. One of the practices that teams need to do well when working the agile way, is test automation.
Test automation may seem easy — but in order for it to be truly effective, the team needs to have a lot of discipline in defining their process, choosing the right tools and technologies to give that quick feedback by running various types of tests (smoke, regression, etc.), and also allow the test automation to evolve and scale.
That said, even today, completing test automation in the same iteration along with development is a huge challenge for most teams. These challenges get aggravated and more apparent when test automation uses tools and technologies that are difficult to keep in sync with the rapidly changing product.
Where is Selenium today?
Selenium has evolved and adapted to the changing test environment, and here’s a quick glance at where it currently stands in the industry:
What’s the roadmap for an agile tester?
The future of testing is very bright. We have a plethora of devices and technology advancements happening every minute. It can seem scary (and for good reason, too), to those who are not on the path of learning and adopting what science and technology holds for us.
Here are some thoughts of what you can do to get on that path:
