We’ve successfully concluded BrowserStack Summer of Learning 2021—a 5-part webinar series that packed several lessons about optimizing test automation frameworks, straight from the framework experts.

This year, we had an interesting lineup of four speakers and saw 7,500+ registrations and 1,500+ attendees who attended five sessions spread across two days—June 30th and July 7th.
