Directions EMEA 2022

Test automation starts in the requirements

Date: 09-11-2022 | From: 14:00 to 14:45 | Room: Hall E

My experience is that test automation is often seen as an exercise only developers are working on. A big misconception in my opinion and a potential threat to not getting test automation (TA) to become a success. TA starts in the requirements!. With TA – read: testing in general - we verify the behavior of what we have implemented, and this behavior is what our requirements (should) define. Thus TA is a team effort, with functional and technical parts inextricably linked. In my session I want to highlight this and exchange ideas with the participants about the consequences.
