Top 5 Challenges for Selenium Users (San Francisco Meetup)

August 26th, 2009 by John Dunham

The San Francisco Selenium Meetup group held a session at Twitter HQ earlier this month.  We asked attendees questions about their experience using Selenium, including:  rank the top challenges they face using Selenium.  The Top 5 Challenges for SF Selenium meetup users were, in order:

  • Test brittleness
  • Infrastructure maintenance
  • Test run-time duration
  • Documentation
  • Selenium Grid Instability

Bear in mind survey participants had just signed up to attend a talk about how to improve test creation efficiency and maintenance, so the ranking of first issue may reflect a non-random sample.
