Launching WebDrivers in .net Core

Launching WebDrivers in .net Core

This entry is part 3 of 9 in the series Building a .Net Core PageFactory Framework

As discussed last time, the goal is to be able to run my tests on any .net Core platform. So right from the get go, lets work out how to get a WebDriver fired up. As ever I develop on Windows and I still have Ubuntu 18.4 installed on the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) with an Xming Xserver so in theory I can also test in Linux.

Sorry, Scrum, a malfunctioning factory and the ‘Definition of Done’

Sorry! Many apologies for the delay in this post, but sometimes life just gets in the way. Last week’s post was always going to be a challenging one. With 2 Birthdays, my wife returning to work from maternity leave and my 3 year old son starting at nursery it was set up to be a busy week. Then on Monday afternoon I was offered the chance to spend the next 2 days on Geoff Watts’ Certified ScrumMaster Course in London….
