Here’s a simple automation framework that you can derive from just Visual Studio (VS) with C#, Selenium and the most popular browsers. Even something this simple will allow you to do cross-browser testing on your system.
Visual Studio: This is our chosen Integrated Development Environment (IDE) given we’re working primarily with C# and .NET technologies. Read about installing Visual Studio on your system in our Set-up section.
Selenium: Once VS is installed we can add the Selenium WebDriver package and WebDriver extensions for each browser using the NuGet Package Manager. That’s covered in the above Set-up for VS too.
Browsers: Finally, you’ll need to install the most popular browsers. We have another Set-up guide that covers setting-up the browsers shown.
Once you’ve done that, be sure to try out our Weekly Code Drills that can be done with this simple framework.
