Test Automation – Where to start?

In my previous blog I answered the question if you should do test automation. Well that answer was clear: YOU SHOULD! But then the next questions pop-up: “Where to start?”, “How?”

The first thing you need is knowledge about test automating. When you leave school or never invested time in learning how then start there. Attend a TDD training, watch videos, read blogs invest time to learn how unit testing works. But that’s not all, also invest time in stuff like clean coding and design patterns. At the end of this blog I will put in some links to books to read.

Test Automation – Why should you?

After working in IT for several years and seeing the common pitfalls when building and releasing software I just wondered, what is your experience?
• Have you seen defects go back and forth between a test and development department?
• Have you seen a delivery go to production with lots of defects?
• Have you seen a delivery go to production with a lot of stress from the team or other departments?
• Have you experienced downtime during or after the release?
• Have you heard testers complain they cannot test everything on time?
