0:00 Welcome back. In this second and third day, it's time to get more practice with Python Selenium. Notice that Selenium is a super important tool
0:11 often used in addition to functional testing. I've not really explained that or demonstrated that so far,
0:17 but you're going to just play directly with it because I have a nice code challenge for you. First, take a quick look at this documentation section:
0:27 Using Selenium to Write Tests. Then head straight to our Code Challenge 32. This is our first Django app we did.
0:34 So, we made a little scraper of Planet Python, and made a app to keep track of what we were sharing on Twitter. That's basically a listing of articles
0:44 where we can say we shared 'em or we skipped 'em. Very simple, but it has a login. So, it's a nice app to do some testing on.
0:53 So, you'll be asked to log in, look at articles, look at various states the articles are in. Look at the HTML of the page, etc.
1:02 And the whole write-up is here. And I think it's a great exercise to practice more with Selenium. And that's it. Try to do that one today,
1:11 or even the third day if you lack time. And, I'll see you tomorrow.
