Hey everyone!

Do you want to learn how to locate elements on a Web page like a boss? Web elements could be anything on the page: buttons, labels, dropdowns, and more. As human users, we don’t often think about the structure of a Web page - we intuitively just look and click on the stuff we want.

However, test automation and other Web code can’t do that. Code needs “pointers” to desired elements, which we call “locators” or “selectors.” There are many types of locators: some simple and others complex.

This TAU course is Web Element Locator Strategies.

In this course, we will use Google Chrome Developer Tools to look “under the hood” at the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript that make up Web pages. Then, we will learn how to write unique, robust, and maintainable locators using helpful anchors from live elements. In the final chapter, we will see how to use those locators in test automation tools and frameworks.

Although we will focus on traditional Web pages, the locator techniques we cover here are also transferable to mobile app testing. Whether you are a Web testing beginner or an old pro who wants to tighten their skills, this course is for you!

Let me give a quick intro to myself. My name is Andy Knight, and I’m the Automation Panda. I’ve been a Software Engineer, a Developer Advocate, and even Director of Test Automation University. And, boy, have I done a lot of Web UI testing!

I’m excited to share my tips and tricks with you in this course. When you’re ready, pop over to Chapter 1 to get started.
