A Closer look at Test Automation frameworks
Test automation is a useful tool in software development. However, a highly effective test automation framework is hard to achieve. How do you know you have the most effective test automation framework? We (test engineers) have worked on automation frameworks that were written by someone else; or involved in designing automation frameworks. Do you have fuzzy or itchy feelings about your current automation framework but have a hard time explaining why? Is it coding style or a difference in process or approach? Does it take far too long to add a new test case in automation takes? Does your automation feel “heavy”?
In this presentation, Jae-jin Lee will discuss why those things happen and explain in detail with examples, and hopefully scratch on some of those itchy feelings throughout the presentation.
Topics (both fuzzy, and itchy) will include goal setting, (bad) re-factoring, design patterns, test oracles, ideal APIs and interfaces, test base and bootstrap code, and automation reporting.
Jae-Jin Lee is currently working at Expedia as Sr. Software Engineer in Test. At Expedia, he is the organizer of Expedia Test Talk series. He is a context-driven tester. Before Expedia, he worked at Livemocha.com and Attachmate as an SDET.
Software Testing Certificate Program
This program enables individuals who have basic computer experience to make a career change into the software industry. The program is also ideal for those who are already testers and wish to gain professional training. This set of three classes is offered again this spring.
