What kinds of things do I need to know in order to get started with automated tests with Selenium? I have experience with unit testing, but no front-end testing yet.

I am interested in smoke testing, best practices, what kinds of guidelines to use when making a test plan with Selenium.

I am interested in hearing how other people use it...

Thanks.

I am talking higher level than that. I have written many a unit test in my day, but now need to learn to write automated UI tests using Selenium.

I am looking for guidance but only mentioned my unit testing experience top show I am a programmer and developer, and not a QA and unable to write in C# code.

Suggestions?
Hi,
you may want to check some video courses on udemy
like this one https://www.udemy.com/selenium-automation-testing-from-scratch/

This help to start, and less boring than a book.
