Announcing The Browser Conference

The browser conference

We've thought about doing this for years… with the explosive growth of providers and the need for developers to have browser automation as a core skill set, we wanted to create an industry conference that is all about sharing the most cutting edge technologies and best practices for browser automation. The conference will focus on libraries such as Puppeteer, Selenium, Webkit, Playwright and many more. We will also include speakers from both tool providers as well as practitioners that are in the trenches day-to-day crafting unique solutions to the hardest problems.

The first year is virtual and 100% free to join. We would greatly appreciate you taking time out of your day to support this effort. We have worked together with Oxylabs to bring this event to life and have an amazing speaker line-up. You can sign up here:
