Quality Assurance Introduction to Selenium Meet Selenium Why Selenium?

Prerequisites for Intro to Selenium course?

The first video mentions prerequisites for the course, but I don't see anything in the teachers notes.

What is recommended that we should have accomplished to succeed in this course?

If you have taken the pre-reqs, they don't show up. I will report this confusion to our team! Thanks for reaching out!

I'm in agreement here. I haven't seen any prereq's on these pages. I've been really excited to take this class, but the two classes above are also intermediate. Can you recommend a path from Beginner, or would I have to take all beginner javascript, then the two classes listed above and then start the Selenium path?

Hi Mike!

If you do know some JS, try taking the ES2015 course. I just want to make sure some of the "newish" JavaScript concepts I am using are covered.

Otherwise, yeah JavaScript Basics, JavaScript Loops, Objects and Arrays and ES2015 should get you there from scratch.

The prerequisites courses are listed on the course page itself.

They are: Introducing ES2015 and Node.js Basics.

I don't see such a list on the course page. In fact I've been looking for prerequisites for other courses on the course homepages and seeing nothing.

That's odd there should be a list around the middle of the page that looks like this: Image of prerequisites list

Beneath the "About this Course" and "What you'll learn" sections of the page.

Edit: It's possible that the list is only displayed if you have not completed the courses in question, are the two courses listed in the image above courses you have already finished?

I haven't done either of those courses, and the pre-reqs are NOT showing up on my "Course Information" page either.

Hi, I dont mind taking up the javascript courses to learn selenium. I'd have loved if the course was in java. haha Well, may be its another chance for me to learn some JS.
