In the world of software development, we often see that we need something right NOW. This also applies to testing. More and more companies tend to test automation, in some cases automated testing is an integral part of software development. But when and why does make sense to automate? How long does it take to prepare everything and write the test scripts? Is it possible to run an automated test within a few minutes? What does it take and what apps and tools to use?
Is it possible to use automated tests without a deeper knowledge of scripting and without the help of their author?
