Speaking in Bilbao
The QA&Test Conference in Bilbao is a conference I frequently visit. If not because I am part of the technical committee, then it is for the great atmosphere, the great people and the nice city of Bilbao. Although visiting the city isn’t an option this year, I love to contribute this year with an online presentation. This year I collaborated with my colleagues Eric de Graaf and Rene van Veldhuijzen and we sat back to evaluate test automation.
Description: Test automation is a key practice these days. But how come that I see so many organizations still relying on manual tests. In this presentation we look at continues cycles in test automation. Derk-Jan will share the journey he made while trying to implement test automation practices at various organizations. He’ll compare his experience with today’s state of automation. For this talk he brought some friends along that and together we’ll discover how much has changed and what challenges seem to be consistent. Test automation is about testing. But automating tests forces us to think about requisites, maturity, and business cases. Test automation can be used to drive test improvements. But: What if you have a test automation framework, but the tests just ain’t no good? Does that mean you are back to square one? We’ll explore a successful marriage between testing and automation and explain why the success of AUTOMATION actually lies in automating good TESTS. With contributions from Eric de Graaf and Rene van Veldhuijzen.
The presentation is part of : TRACK 2: Test Automation, 20 October | 16:30 – 17:30. Check the schedule at the conference website
