This course is intended to teach UI Automation of Web Applications with Selenium alongside Behave Framework using python as the programming language for writing the automated scripts.

Selenium automates browsers. That’s it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) be automated as well. Selenium has the support of some of the largest browser vendors who have taken (or are taking) steps to make Selenium a native part of their browser. It is also the core technology in countless other browser automation tools, APIs and frameworks.

Behave is a python based BDD(Behaviour Driven Development) framework which can be used in conjunction with various other python libraries to automate the application’s feature under test. 

Behavior-driven development (or BDD) is an agile software development technique that encourages collaboration between developers, QA and non-technical or business participants in a software project.

Behave uses tests written in a natural language style, backed up by Selenium, Python code.
