Feedback/Constructive Criticism on Selenium Tutorial Series
I am currently four articles into a Selenium Tutorial on my blog and am just really started to get to the detailed posts. I wanted to make sure that my content is going to be received well, or if it can be changed to be better before I complete it that I would. The articles are short so far, so any feedback from any experience level is very very helpful!

I think its great you're doing that. There aren't many good resources on best practices, and I do believe there are a lot of bad over simplified examples out there. I think it's good you have a blog/mini lessons targeted at beginners. I think it's great you're taking the time to explain the concepts.
Main suggestion I would mention is to watch your coding style. You'll want to stay within the general coding style for the language used. ( https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff926074.aspx ) I think it hurts the perception of being an authority when I see code examples with variables not named in the correct style of their scope.
My other suggestion would be to create a github account with your code examples so other people can download and compile it, and try it out.
Some resources you might want to look at,
* Elemental Selenium: Receive a Free, Weekly Tip on Using Selenium like a Pro - this guy does regular selenium tips in Ruby, and has a nice open source project where you can try out what you've learned, https://github.com/tourdedave/the-internet
* SauceLabs has a nice blog that will often time include selenium tips, Selenium Testing? Do Cross Browser Testing with Sauce Labs
Keep up the good work. It's great that you're creating beginner resources.
