  1. Great video tutorial. My company uses cucumber with
    selenium but they did not implement page-object-model concept. This
    will be new to them. What would your suggestion be to an automation
    tester who wants to move away from Watir to Selenium with Cucumber
    and ruby?

  2. The good news is that you do not necessarily need to move away from Watir. Watir is built on top of Selenium so they are essentially the same – just the Watir API is a little bit higher level and makes some things easier. My suggestion is to use the page-object gem as it will abstract away Watir or Selenium and allow you to focus on writing your tests at a high level and ignore the low level plumbing. Combine it with gems like data_magic and it will dramatically simplify your tests as well.

    Hope this helps.

  3. Hi Jeff, I recently watched the video and was wondering where I could find the keyboard shortcuts for RubyMine that you have used in the video. I would appreciate it if you could upload them to GitHub or create a blog post sharing your setup.

    By the way, thanks for the page-object gem. It is awesome!
