Learn how to use Perl & Selenium to run functional tests by automating browser usage.

This talk will take users through writing a simple test, and move on to sample tests for more complex testing scenarios.

* testing for relative position of elements on a page
* handling waits for page loads, and ajax based results
* form submissions, and link navigation
* executing JavaScript as part of your tests.

After we've covered the basics -- we'll spend the remainder of time demonstrating test tasks in a sample page with feedback from the audience on what they'd like to see tested.

This page with 15-20 sample testing tasks will be available in a git repo and online so participants can try their hand on the remainder of tasks if they'd like to gain experience using Selenium and Perl to do various tests.
