Speaker Biography

I'm an independent professional who takes pride in helping teams and organizations improve their testing efforts through smart application of tools. I'm also a trainer on various subjects related to testing and automation. I live in the Netherlands with my wife and two sons. When I'm not working, I like to run or to read a good book (particularly British detective novels). You can contact me at [email protected], on LinkedIn or via Twitter @_basdijkstra. Throughout a long a career within testing and automation, Bas has seen a lot of ineffective automation solutions. Through learning from his own and others mistakes, he has planned his talk upon ways he thinks will enable a successful test automation approach.

How do you structure your automation, and what are factors that you need to take into account? And how do you select the right tool for the job? Join me as we create, from scratch, a rock solid automation approach for a sample web application, addressing all relevant questions as we go.
