(Excerpting from the Meetup entry for better indexing/searchability)

"We're thrilled to announce that, hot on the heels of his CSS locators talk at the Selenium Conference, Santiago Suarez Ordonez, the Sauce Ninja and Selenium committer, will be the speaker of our next meetup on May 11th at Mozilla.

Santiago, or 'Santi', will give some insight into why you should say NO to XPath, and instead use CCS locators to make your tests more readable, faster, and realiable.

He gave an abridged version of this talk in the Track B of the Selenium Conference and it proved to be widly popular, so he'll be extending it and alse sharing some cool tools that will help you transition from XPath to CSS.

Thanks to our friends at Mozilla for offering to co-host this meetup. See you all in a few weeks!

6:30pm - Drinks, Pizza, Networking
