About the talk
How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Record and Playback - Dave Haeffner | Software Developer at Applitools
Record and playback tools like Selenium IDE have a stigma attached to them in our industry— they’re not worth your time, they produce tests that are impossible to maintain, and they’re only for non-technical people.
But with the new Selenium IDE, that’s all just a bad rap
In this talk, Dave Haeffner will squash the stigma by showing you examples of how Selenium IDE can reliably augment and level-up your testing practice regardless of your team’s test automation maturity or your level of technical experience. He’ll also share how he went from a record-and-playback naysayer to a Selenium IDE maintainer.
