February 2018 Webinar:
If you’re a tester who codes, chances are a big chunk of your job involves test automation – specifically writing tests that automate the user workflow. As a two-decade (and counting) veteran of software testing, Alan Page has seen a huge number of teams utterly fail in their test automation efforts – but he’s also been a part of a few teams who have been successful, and in this session he’ll share some of the patterns that work; as well as many that don’t.
Alan will share strategies for successful automation, the challenge of flaky tests, the perils of UI automation, and many other tips based on experience in test and test automation across dozens of high volume products.
Whether you’re deeply invested in test automation, or just getting started, this session will have practical tips you can apply to your own testing efforts immediately.
