QTP/UFT VS Selenium [WEBINAR]

January 21st, 2015 by Amber Kaplan

selenium testing & sauceModern testing practices have shifted dramatically in recent years. As open source tools such as Selenium have begun to be accepted and incorporated into the enterprise testing landscape, proprietary tools like HP’s QTP/UFT have begun to be transitioned out in many cases. While there are many benefits to using a tool like Selenium (for example, it’s maximized when used as an automated testing tool, works with every browser, and plays nicely with all major computer languages and frameworks), the most compelling case to make the transition is the developer and QA time saved.

Join us for our next webinar, QTP/UFT VS Selenium, featuring Tarun Lalwani, QTP Expert and author of QuickTest Professional Unplugged. Hear about how we generated an 80% execution time savings by migrating client’s test suite from QTP to Selenium. We will also answer following questions:

  • How is Selenium different from QTP?
  • Why do I need to migrate to Selenium?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of the migration?
  • How do I plan the migration?
  • What challenges will I face during Migration?

Click HERE to register for our next webinar on Wednesday, January 28th, 2015, at 10:00am PST.

A live Q&A will follow at the end of the presentation.

Note: This is not a “how to” or “technology session” on Selenium or QTP. This is session is focused on giving you a understanding whether Selenium is right for you or not.

HomeAway + Sauce Labs: Continuous Delivery Made Awesome [VIDEO]

October 7th, 2014 by Amber Kaplan

A few weeks back, we sat down with Carl Shaulis at HomeAway to learn how they leverage Sauce Labs‘ cloud in their testing process.

HomeAway, Inc. is the world’s leading online marketplace for the vacation rental industry. With over one million live vacation rental listings in 190 countries paired with a family of 50 websites and hundreds of applications thanks to a series of acquisitions, quality is their top priority. To get ahead of the curve, Carl’s team is trying to automate and use best practices like continuous integration as much as possible. We were also thrilled to hear that they’re using Appium, a cross-platform test automation framework powered by Sauce Labs, for their mobile testing.  Carl also says Sauce fits perfectly into their testing process.

Watch the video below to learn more about their path towards continuous delivery, and how Sauce fits into that story.

Re-Blog: Building Markdown-Based Developer Docs

August 13th, 2014 by Amber Kaplan

Sauce Labs developer Chris Wren and his team have been working tirelessly to improve our documentation system, so we thought we’d share what they’ve been up to. Says Chris:

“Recently at Sauce Labs we decided to retool our documentation system. This decision came after accumulating docs in a number of template systems and repos which were difficult to standardize and maintain. The result of this effort was a new markdown-based docs site available at docs.saucelabs.com.”

For all the details, be sure to check out Chris’ post – just click the image below to view.
