In this session from Agile On The Beach 2017 entitled ‘Automation, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly’, Raluca Morris discusses her experiences of automation in the context of continuous delivery.
“When I first heard of automation(in the context of continuous delivery) I though it is the holy grail of testing that will save me time and make testing better. Although the previous two statements are true, what I have learned over the last three and a half years is that it can be both good and bad, and sometimes ugly.”
In this session Raluca explains what she has learnt learned through doing it everyday, what mistakes she’s made and also what success looks like. Key points – automation will challenge you like no other but it will be fun and rewarding to overcome those challenges – automation done badly can do more harm then good – how to start automation on a project and where does that lead you
