Innovations in Test Automation: It’s Not All about Regression

Although classic test automation, which usually focuses on regression testing, has its its place in testing, there is much more you can do to improve testing productivity and its value to the project and your organization. Through experience-based examples, video clips, and demonstrations, John Fodeh shares one company’s innovation journey to improve its test automation practice. John illustrates how they learned to apply automated “test monkeys” that explore the software in new ways each time a test is executed. Then, he describes how the test team uses weighted probability tables to increase each test’s “intelligence” factor. Find out how they implemented model-based testing to improve automation effectiveness and how this practice led to the even more valuable behavior-driven testing approach they employ today. With these and other alternative approaches you, too, can get more mileage from your automation efforts. Join John to get inspired and start your own journey of innovation with new ideas that enhance your test automation strategy.
