Talk Description
Gwen Diagram welcomed Phil Wells on stage, who joined us from New York, USA to answer all your questions about WebDriver and how it can be used as a tool for something other than just application testing.

Phil delivered a fantastic talk WebDriver For Journalists: Scraping the Web To Report the Truth, where he discussed the role of WebDriver and other web-crawling technologies in that and other journalistic endeavours. 

Phil also delivered a 99 Minute Workshop titled Web Scraping with NodeJS and the creative Activity Sonnets for Software Testers, which you now also have access to.
What you’ll learn

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

  • Think about WebDriver as a tool for something other than just application testing
  • Web professionals will consider alternative information-gathering methods for cases when WebDriver is not the best tool in the box
