Talk Description
Most Selenium test frameworks are designed with local execution in mind, with no significant performance hit to making additional wire calls. When executing on a remote server, however, each unnecessary command incurs a latency cost that adds up quickly. Some of the biggest offenders serve no real purpose and can be easily eliminated, while others serve an important function in synchronizing your code with the state of the browser. 

In this Masterclass, Titus Fortner shares examples of the most common extraneous commands. Then he walks you through how to rethink your synchronization strategy to dramatically improve performance while maintaining reliability.
What you’ll learn

By the end of this masterclass, you'll be able to:

  • Discover the advantages of wrapping element objects to save state
  • Recall new timeouts and pageLoadStrategy W3C capabilities
  • Recognise why asking for forgiveness is better than asking for permission
