This is part 1 of 8 in a mini series of follow-up Q&A's from Selenium expert Dave Haeffner. Dave was kind enough to join us for a recent webinar, "Selenium Bootcamp". Topics included how to build out a well factored, maintainable, resilient, and parallelized suite of tests that will run locally, on a Continuous Integration system, and in the cloud. He's also agreed to respond to 8 of the many follow-up questions we received post-webinar. Below you'll find the first Q&A. Stay tuned next Wednesday for the next question.
1. Is converting my Selenium IDE script to a programming language to start using webdriver sufficient?You may get some value out of exporting your existing IDE tests, but they will likely require a good amount of clean-up. You're likely to get more value out of identifying a few pieces of core functionality in the application you're testing, and writing new tests for this functionality in a programming language from scratch. -Dave Haeffner, April 9, 2014
