Noteworthy Snippets

The following section is a collection of snippets I have done to try some software or packages out to even giving proof of concept of how we can use new technology to integrate with our test framework.
  • With an upcoming new web portal for Tolarus central, I have looked at using Selenium with C# to keep our technology stack the same. To do this I created a simple script with C#, NUnit and Selenium this can be found here.
