Don’t Be a Fool With a Tool
About the presentation
How is your automation journey going? Are you a beginner or have you already started your journey, but are still struggling? In both cases, this talk is for you! I will share my experiences and my struggles, and you will learn how to bring your test automation to the next level. Many people get into test automation without having a profound background in programming or without receiving any proper training. They have some idea about what tool to use, gathered some basic knowledge, and managed to create some automated tests with it. At a certain point, you suspect that something is not quite right with your automation. Your code feels messy and maintaining it is hell, costs a lot of time, and frustrates you. This talk has you covered.
I will present practical solutions to problems that I have encountered and see a lot of people facing them as well. You will walk away with practical advice you can use in your daily work. This will reduce the stress and pain working, by significantly improving the quality of your automated tests and reduce maintenance efforts.
