This year, time to invest in yourself and your test automation…
For many software-producing organizations, test automation is—or is quickly becoming—a cornerstone of their software development processes. Development teams are increasingly relying on automated checks to ensure that software that needs to be delivered in ever shorter iterations conforms to a quality level that meets or exceeds business and customer expectations.
How to Keep Your Test Automation Suit Fit
Test automation can be a wonderful thing, but adding tests thoughtlessly, having unrealistic expectations of test automation, using a single tool or framework for everything and automating everything from a single perspective can quickly lead to sluggish, bloated automation.
A lot of these problems can be fixed and even prevented by asking yourself the right questions before you add another check to your existing test automation suite. Questions that can help you prevent from automating the wrong things, from taking the wrong approach to automate the right things, and from creating and running tests that do not add enough value to warrant the effort.
In this eBook, you will learn what these questions are, and see how they can be applied to a real world application by means of a case study.
