Scaleable, PaaS Selenium Grid with Docker

February 26th


Stage A


50 minutes


The Selenium Grid is a vital piece of infrastructure for any serious Selenium WebDriver test automation solution. Many organizations find the setup and maintenance of a Grid a difficult and expensive task. While outsourced solutions exist, they are too slow for any real professional Continuous Integration or Continuous Delivery workflow, and are expensive.

The Selenium Docker project provides a very easy to setup, deploy, maintain, and use solution for running a Selenium Grid on Docker supporting Firefox and Chrome on Linux. This talk will present how to use the Selenium Docker project, how to implement it as a PaaS solution, how to connect to Selenium Docker VMs and watch a test running for debugging, and extensions such as video recording.
