The page object model starts at slide 12. My notes:

It’s a software layer between selenium and their [salesforce] tests.
Specifically, this layer expose classes/methods like:

	myCustomPage.ApproveForm();  
	myPrintDriverPage.typeComment(text);  
	myPortalPage.login(username, password);  

Tests are only using that api, not immediately the selenium one.
- Good code reuse
- Easy maintenance
