#100DaysOfWeb in Python Transcripts
Chapter: Day 49: Selenium
Lecture: Lesson introduction
0:00 Hello and welcome back to The 100 Days of Web in Python. The coming four days there'll be four miscellaneous items starting with Selenium.
0:10 It's just one day per topic and it will mostly be video watching. So, today will be Selenium. We're going to write some tests for a web app.
0:23 Here we have our PyBites, my reading list and we're going to test this app with Selenium. And we're going to make sure that future development
0:35 will be sunny and safe. Selenium Python. It's really a binding providing a simple API to write functional tests using the Selenium Web Driver.
0:50 And another definition I really like is Selenium is a framework for the automated testing of web applications.
0:55 Using Selenium, you can basically automate every task in your browser as if a real person were to execute the task
1:03 and we'll see that later, when we run our test. It's like an invisible person logging into your site, clicking around, doing stuff. It's really cool.
1:11 So, just sit back and relax, and watch the videos over the coming days, and you will learn a new skill.
