One of the latest trends in test automation is visual validation. Automated visual validation is one of the most efficient and reliable ways to do testing. In fact, automating visual validation is probably the only way that this type of testing can be done.
In this course you will learn how to harness the power of visual validation using Applitools with Selenium WebDriver and C#. However, the concepts and the API calls here apply to any programming language as the Applitools API is similar on all platforms.
By the end of the course you will be able to run automated visual validation tests, set baselines, apply different kinds of ignore regions, batch tests, rename tests and so much more.
