Hi All, this is the first tutorial “Install the Selenium environment with Python” in the series called: Selenium is not difficult to be guided by programming is not difficult. This is a series of tutorials for Selenium from the perspective of a data engineer, programmer, helping you to master Selenium for a number of main tasks:

  1. Build automated software on the browser
  2. Collect data from websites for work

However, anyone who wants to learn and use Selenium can start with this not difficult Selenium series. Because the purpose of this tutorial series is to help you know how to use Selenium.

In this first article, we will help you set up your environment to start working with Selenium. To help make learning simplest and most effective. We will decide to use the Python language to write code in this series. Selenium supports multiple languages ​​and has the same function syntax (I’ve tried both with java and python so this conclusion is available). Therefore, if you use a different language, the ideas implemented, or even the functions of Selenium are similar in all languages.

As such, the tasks we need to do in this article include:

  • Install the Python programming environment
  • Install the environment using Selenium
  • Test run the program first
