Get started with Selenium using Python as a programming language
Author: Pallavi R Sharma
Publisher: BPB Publications
Step by step directions to get started with Selenium using Python as a programming language DESCRIPTION Selenium is the most popular open source test automation tool available in the market. In the last decade, its usage has dramatically increased in the IT sector across all types of organizations. The reason for its popularity is mainly because it supports multiple programming languages, test executions on multiple browsers and operating systems. In this book, we will learn about the different components of Selenium. We will discuss the concepts of WebDriver and learn how to apply test automation concepts with it to automate the testing of our application. We will learn the process of recognizing the test objects on the screen and writing Selenium commands using Python as a programming language We will also discuss how to use design patterns like the page object mode and data-driven testing to ensure building a robust test framework, which is modular and scalable in nature. KEY FEATURES Get introduced to the world of Selenium Understand the concept of locators in Selenium Learn how to write scripts using Selenium WebDriver in Python Learn the concepts of synchronization Learn how to handle different HTML elements like form, table, alert, frame, and dropdown Learn about design patterns like the page object model, data-driven tests, and adding assertions WHAT WILL YOU LEARN The objective is to introduce the world of Selenium to a manual tester who knows Python as a programming language. You will learn to demystify the concept of identifying test objects and writing Selenium commands to create robust test scripts. This book will help learn to automate different HTML elements, which we come across in the web applications we need to test. You will understand how to build a good test suite by learning the concept of design patterns like the page object model and data-driven tests to ensure maintainability of code. WHO THIS BOOK IS FOR This book is for people who have experience in manual testing and knowledge in Python as a programming language. This book will also be helpful for a developer who knows Python as a programming language and is looking for test automation as a career option. Table of Contents 1.

A Step-By-Step Guide to an Objective Competency Management System
Author: Mahesh Kuruba
This book discusses the Role Competency Matrix (RCM), a competency management system framework that helps organizations to quantify and manage workforce competencies and align them to business needs. An objective and transparent system for both employees and managers alike, the RCM helps managers make quantitative decisions to develop strategies for staffing needs, competency development, career progression and succession planning in the workforce. It also helps employees to identify the roles suited to their aspirations and capabilities and to take responsibility for their development. “The right people for the right roles” is key to effective workforce management, and workforce competencies must be optimally deployed to improve productivity, enhance job satisfaction and reduce attrition. At the same time, information technology (IT) businesses are under constant pressure to respond quickly to the ever-changing technology and business trends. Although, some organizations take a myopic “hire and fire” approach, in order to succeed, an organization must continually upgrade its workforce’s competencies in line with new demands.
