Automation, the good, the bad and the ugly
When I first heard of automation(in the context of continuous delivery) I though it is the holy grail of testing that will save me time and make testing better. Although the previous two statements are true, what I have learned over the last three and a half years is that it can be both good and bad, and sometimes ugly. I will show you what I have learned through doing it everyday(and sometimes in my sleep), what mistakes I’ve made and also what success looks like. Key points – automation will challenge you like no other but it will be fun and rewarding to overcome those challenges – automation done badly can do more harm then good – how to start automation on a project and where does that lead you
Automation, the good, the bad and the ugly Raluca Morariu
I’ve been in the software industry for 10 years now. Started as a developer back in 2006 and for the last three and a half years have been working as a tester. As of recent times I am a Delivery Manager with PaddyPowerBetfair and I am an evangelist of continuous delivery and automation, having developed an in house framework to facilitate the development of automated tests and integrating them into continuous delivery.
