Many of the testers understand the importance of automated tests which can test the system end to end. There are plenty of tools like Selenium, Watir, White etc. which allow you to drive your web or desktop ui for these tests. The intention of these tests is to mimic the user’s interaction with the system and automatically validate that he could achieve his goals.

In this session we will share various approaches which allow you to build tests which an end user can understand and maybe even participate in writing. We will look at the problems with the usual approach of end-to-end writing tests such as being too verbose and technical.
We will look at the multiple benefits of writing tests in the end user’s language and the different ways in which to achieve it.
Finally, we will look at the key takeaways.
