Learning Puppeteer In-Stride Through Short Videos

A collection of videos that explain and demonstrate practical and up-to-date usages for Puppeteer, inspired by the “Getting to Know Puppeteer Using Practical Examples” article.

A little over a year ago, I published an article overviewing a variety of available capabilities in Puppeteer. Since there were many positive feedbacks, I decided to remake the content as highly focused videos considering up-to-date practices.
