Thomas Haver – The Test Automation Firehose: Be Strategic and Tactical

Teams that adopt automation often rush to automate everything they can – the automation firehose. Just because a scenario CAN be automated does not mean it SHOULD be automated. In this talk, we’ll learn how to automate both strategically and tactically to maximize the benefits of automation.*Good test automation help testers do their job instead of replacing them, and should be used to enhance testing instead of replacing it.

*The promise to “save time and lower costs while improving quality” is often just wishful thinking.

*Focus on the fastest, most robust tests and create UI & E2E tests as needed.

*Build based on probability of failure, impact on business, and complexity.

* Budget, Schedule and Technical Skillset will always limit the path forward.
