Agile Testing and Test Automation Summit 2016 took place in Tampa on May 20th, 2016, with a focus on Technical Sessions and featuring a keynote speech by our own Jim Trentadue on the subject of “What Project Teams need to know about Successful Test Automation”
Jim also spoke separately about “Why Test Automation Fails”
Testers face common challenges in automation. Unfortunately, these challenges often lead to subsequent failures. Jim Trentadue explored a variety of automation perceptions and myths―the perception that a significant increase in time and people is needed to implement automation; the myth that, once automation is achieved, testers will not be needed; the myth that scripted automation will serve all the testing needs for an application; the perception that developers and testers can add automation to a project without additional time, resources, or training; the belief that anyone can implement automation. The testing organization must ramp up quickly on the test automation process and the prep-work analysis that needs to be done including when to start, how to structure the tests, and what system to start with. Learn how to respond to these common challenges by developing a solid business case for increased automation adoption by engaging manual testers in the testing organization, being technology agnostic, and stabilizing test scripts regardless of applications changes.s all practices, and perspectives.
The Summit is a key meeting place for Test Professionals and Executives from leading IT organizations. The event featured an inspiring day of talks and workshops by professional speakers focused on Agile Testing and Test Automation Innovation.
