0:00 Welcome back to the 100 Days Of Python. Wow, Day 73, you're making great progress. The coming 3 days I will be your guide,
0:10 to teach you how to use Selenium in Python to automate some cool tasks. After some basics, we dive straight into
0:18 a practical example, where I will show you how you can use Selenium to login to a website. In this case, Packt, where I got some E-books
0:27 piled up that we will grab with Selenium, making them downloadable from the Command line. That's already pretty cool, but then we will
0:35 look at a second application. We log into the PyBites banner app, which is a Flask app, we simulate using the
0:42 forum manually by posting the variables straight to the server. And it comes back with a banner, all in a automated way. And that's pretty powerful.
0:50 But if you need, like, to make 200 banners, a tool like Selenium can save you a lot of time. So this will be a very practical lesson,
0:58 a lot of code, and will be a lot of fun. And at the end of it, I will have some practical exercises, so you get your hands dirty with Selenium.
1:07 Let's dive straight in.
