Barely any modern software development project will be initiated without the discussion on test automation. With the demand to deliver software products in higher quality faster, test automation is oftentimes perceived by project leads as the silver bullet, allowing to ‘test everything’ without high overhead in employing skilled workforce. The tools are being discussed more often, than development and maintenance costs of automation frameworks that can support projects from inception into delivery and post-production.
Incorrect approaches that result in choosing invalid test automation strategies are often the cause of much frustration later in the project, when the reality of test automation activities become visible and need to be accounted for.
In this webinar, Anna will discuss her experiences in selecting short term and long term test automation strategies applied within various contexts, various skill sets that are required for running a successful test automation project, and suggest alternatives to full-blown test automation with the insufficient project resources.
* when the test automation is an enabler, and when it’s an impediment to project success
* when to start planning for automation, and how to select the tools and methods most suitable for specific project needs
* how to anticipate investment costs and support long term automation effort across multiple projects
* skills and roles in test automation
