The power of end-to-end testing
Selenium in .NET for Testers and developers
About the Book
In this book, I want to show you the power of web applications end-to-end testing. Besides of all that great functionality, the framework which I want to describe here is very easy to use and understand. Moreover using some techniques to design and architect test cases, it will be quite easy to maintain and use that kind of tests.
.NET Designer Developer
The most important aspect of software quality is to meet the requirements of the end user. End-to-end testing allows you to validate your software against user acceptance criteria. Adrian Sroka's book is a great tutorial on how to use Selenium to write your end-to-end tests correctly and boost the quality of your software without much effort.

Selenium succinctly and without going around the bush. In a fast way, you will learn, chapter by chapter, from what Selenium is to how to create a BDD end-to-end tests with the help of SpecFlow. Fully recommended!
I knew nothing about end-to-end testing before and learnt a lot from this book. The book explains basic concepts and gives many examples, which make this topic easy to understand.

A great tutorial for Selenium. You will learn how to create end to end tests in .NET tools. If you never think about it, this book is a great way to start a journey.
The Power of End-To-End Testing" by Adrian Sroka is End-To-End book. If you wonder how to design, organize and implement tests in your application, you should read that book. The Author discusses carefully a lot of aspects of E2E tests, including: locating UI elements, performing actions, navigating, handling errors, asynchronous calls. There is also quite wide and clear description of Page Object pattern and Fluent Interface (both proposed by Martin Fowler).
Adrian Sroka's book covers the topic of end-to-end testing from top to bottom, it presents not only Selenium, but also other tools useful for complex software quality assurance. Subjects are clearly presented in its basic as well as in complex real-life examples. This book is not only for programmers but for everyone involved in the software development process.
