Max Saperstone

For almost a decade, Max Saperstone has been a test engineer focusing on test automation and the continuous integration/continuous delivery process. Max specializes in open source tools—Selenium, JMeter, AutoIT, Cucumber, and Chef. He has led several testing automation efforts, including developing an automated suite focused on web-based software to operate over several applications. Max also headed a major project developing an automated testing structure to run Cucumber tests over multiple test interfaces and environments, while developing a system to keep test data “ageless.” He is currently developing a new testing architecture for SecureCI to allow testing of multiple interfaces, custom reporting, and minimal test upkeep.

Test Automation
Agile Automation Strategies and Frameworks

Agile practices have done a magnificent job of speeding up the software development process. Unfortunately, simply applying these agile practices to testing isn't enough to keep testers at the same pace. Test automation is necessary to support agile delivery. Max Saperstone presents an overview of testing frameworks, benefits of applying these frameworks in the agile world, implementation strategies, and proven practices. Max discusses multiple framework types—data driven, keyword driven, and action driven—and focuses on their pros and cons to help testers determine which approach can be most beneficial in specific situations. Max covers gaps existing in framework coverage, and discusses how customizing and combining these frameworks help raise quality while reducing test maintenance. Although tool agnostic, Max provides examples from current tooling options. Delegates who are either new to testing automation or looking to optimize their current automation strategy will benefit from the topics Max covers.
