As a test consultant, I visit different clients. I have seen a lot of projects from various natures using different programming languages. Mostly I see projects using PHP, Java or C#. As a consultant we need to be very flexible, so we can work in those different environments. This is actually the best part of working as a consultant; you can develop a very broad knowledge.
So, I decided to put some very basic test automation projects on my personal github, written in C# and Java. These projects contain the use of a dependency management tool, Selenium/WebDriver and the basic use of the Page Object Model.

Remember these projects show you the basic usage of Selenium/WebDriver and may help you to get started with test automation.
