Selenium is one of the great success stories of the open source era. The web app testing framework has been with us since shortly after the turn of the millennium and has grown to become the dominant QA tool in its field.

Software Testing | By Timothy Joseph | March 14, 2019

Video conferencing came into the picture for Agile development teams. It is the optimal, most efficient form of communication currently available.
