Title: ‘Test Automation Health’ – Mark Fewster
Are you benefiting from test automation? Are you sure this will continue? Do you worry that your automated testing will falter and fail?
After starting well, many test automation efforts do not grow from strength to strength but fail to keep pace with the increasing demands placed upon them.
Fortunately this decline is not inevitable. It is possible to spot the symptoms of trouble early on and take action to correct the issues before they inflict long term damage. To do this we need to learn to distinguish between automation that is and is not healthy, by understanding the symptoms of test automation disorder and disease, and by learning what trends to monitor.
ISA Software Skillnet will be running two grant aided ISTQB courses in September, the foundation and the test managers course:
ISTQB Foundation in Software Testing 26-28 September
ISTQB Advanced Test Manager in Software Testing 19-23 September
