Slides from GGUG

I gave a talk last night at the London Groovy & Grails User Group about the Selenium RC plugin and how to use it. I pitched the talk assuming that people were somewhat familiar with Selenium and had probably used the Selenium IDE. I'm not sure if that was the right way to go but the talk went pretty well and people seemed interested in what I had to say. I ended up talking a lot about the page object pattern and how awesome it is for building manageable suites of Selenium tests.

I really wanted to show a few quick examples but I had neglected to consider that a mini display port VGA adapter might be a useful thing to bring and unfortunately with Skills Matter being in the middle of an office move there wasn't one to hand. Luckily I was able to borrow a laptop so at least I could get my slides up on the projector.

Very interesting! If you get the chance to post some examples, I would read them with interest.

In the mean time you could grab the plugin from there are a number of test examples (including most of what is on the slides) under test/projects/selenium-test and test/projects/selenium-with-spock that can simply be run with 'grails test-app -functional'
