Automated software testing is considered critical for software development organizations. It can save time by performing repetitive but necessary tasks, which are already in place, or some testing that is difficult to perform manually. It saves money as well because a time savings means cost savings. Automated testing can also improve accuracy performing the same steps precisely every time it is executed. More importantly, it can find defects in early stages so that we can quickly respond to them.
In this talk, we first discuss our practical experience on using automated testing in our project. We present our process and tools to make test automation possible. Lastly, we discuss 7 deadly sins of automated testing.
