7 Sure-fire Ways to Ruin Your Test Automation
Test automation projects fail, but why? Could you stop it from happening? In this tongue-in-cheek talk, Seretta Gamba will share seven proven methods to disrupt or utterly ruin a test automation project, including letting a lone champion keep important knowledge to themselves, ignoring good programming practices, setting impossible goals, and feigning support. Seretta’s humorous recommendations provide managers, testers, and automators alike with the early signs of an automation project in danger. By “warning” that the most effective defenses are found using the test automation patterns, Seretta provides the tools needed to counter and resolve issues that lead to project failure. You'll take away proven practices to defend against disrupting your automation, including deputies, training and pairing, goals, pilots, good programming practices, and designs for reuse, and you'll also get online access to the automation patterns wiki, which leads you through test automation success patterns and offers ways to avoid failures.
