Who should attend?

This is an intermediate level course, geared for Test Engineers, Quality Assurance Engineers, and their management who have prior knowledge of Selenium basics. Code examples are in a combination of the specific domain-specific languages and Java, so some experience in object-oriented development with Java is expected. The WebDriver portion also assumes some prior exposure to the Selenium family of tools.
