Recap: Sauce Labs at Selenium Conf 2014 [VIDEO]

Posted Sep 24th, 2014

We’re still glowing from this year’s Selenium Conf in Bangalore. Santi Ordonez, Ashley Wilson, and Isaac Murchie attended the event and represented Sauce Labs.

The Selenium Conference is a volunteer-run, non-profit event presented by members of the Selenium Community. The goal of the conference is to bring together Selenium developers & enthusiasts from around the world to share ideas, socialize, and work together on advancing the present and future success of the project.

Santi, Ashely, and Isaac shared with us some of their insight into the crowd this year that we in turn wanted to share with you. Of approximately 450 attendees, they estimated around 75% purchased their own ticket, therefore the personal interest level in Selenium was high. The attendees were extremely technical at this event, even more so than in Boston’s conference. Only 5 people confessed to being IDE users, while everyone said they use WebDriver. Win!

Santi achieved near star status at the Sauce Labs booth; it was crowded the entire time.

Meanwhile, Isaac gave a great talk titled “Selenium in the Palm of your Hand: Appium and Automated Mobile Testing.”
