Building the Blocks of Trust in Automation

Add to calendar

When moving toward automation, establishing trust in the automation test suite is important to unite the team as a whole. Once trust is established in the process and the tests, it becomes crucial to the overall software development lifecycle. Join Sneha Viswalingam as she shares the journey of how her team of manual test engineers contributed to automation, the steps they took to build clean automation and win the confidence of the organization, and how they came to believe that the automation effort has their backs. She'll outline the strategies used to make the tests reliable and the test development and coding standards her team followed, then the tools and training provided for the manual testers to contribute to the automation efforts. Finally, she'll share the steps they took to make their automation efforts useful and visible to other teams and management by using a wallboard to display the metrics. You will leave with tips that can be applied to achieve a well-functioning automated QA team.
