  3. 3. The conversa,on: “Automa,on and people” Isabel’s theory: •  Test automa,on requires considera,on of the User eXperience (UX) for the tool and the tests; •  People who use automa,on might not always be technical but they are always human; •  UX-Design and UX-Tes,ng for test automa,on supports improved decision making and quality.
