Tomer Steinfeld has been working as a Frontend Developer with Applitools for over a year now. He’s an expert developer and the nicest of people! His currrent focus has been rewriting Selenium IDE from scratch to bring it up to date with modern web standards. It is now both a Google Chrome extension and Firefox add-on, is written in React and MobX and does very challenging things. These include recording user interactions, playing them back, supporting many types of UI selectors, supporting interaction with other extensions to extend functionality, emitting code and exporting it, dealing with security constraints, and much more.
We sat down with Tomer to find out what brought him to work in web development and Applitools, and how he continues to learn and build on his skills within his role.
