'Where Exploration And Automation Meet: Getting The Most From Automated Functional Tests' by Andy Kemp

572 views

Published on

Agile teams invest heavily in automated functional tests. When done well, this investment is paid back with fast feedback enabling teams to release software quickly and often. By structuring tests in the right way, teams can further leverage this investment by using these tests as a platform for exploratory testing that could find issues a regression test suite won't.



This talk will cover the process and cost benefits of creating automated tests that can be reused to support exploratory testing. Concepts and practices will be described within the context of a mature agile delivery team. It will provide an overview of current practices for automated functional and exploratory testing within agile teams. The main focus of the talk will be to provide an overview and demonstration of techniques that will allow testers to utilise existing automated functional tests to support exploratory testing. The benefits of this approach such as; reducing the time needed for exploratory testing, increasing exploratory testing coverage, improved repeatability when reproducing bugs and improved robustness of your automated functional regression tests will be reviewed.
