Mr. Swarup Kshatriya started the workshop with a very creative introductory session on 11th October 2019. First of all he has explained the concepts which will be very helpful for use of  Software Testing concepts in industry, using power point presentations. In this theoretical explanation part, Mr. Swarup Kshatriya explained the Eclipse software and Selenium Tool and use of this software for further practical implementation in Automation Testing They have also given a brief idea about challenges of tester along with introduction to Test Cases design principles.

In the Practical sessions, they have taken example how we write test cases, programming fundamental, how enterprise software are managed. They have also explained he limitations of Selenium RC because that was the reason for the eventual development of WebDriver. Selenium WebDriver is a web-based automation testing framework which can test web pages initiated on various web browsers and various operating systems. They have also explained TestNG framework and Window handling methods. On 12th October 2019 Mr. Swarup Kshatriya has taken practical session on real world applications of software Testing through Social media Websites.
