Seretta Gamba

Steria Mummert ISS GmbH

Seretta Gamba has more than thirty years of experience in software development and testing. As test manager at Steria Mummert ISS GmbH, Seretta was charged with improving their test automation process in 2001. After studying other strategies, she developed Command-Driven Testing and a supporting framework. Seretta presented a 2009 enhancement to the framework that enabled the test automation team to “harvest” test case information by supporting manual testing. A description of this experience became a chapter in the book Experiences of Test Automation by Dorothy Graham and Mark Fewster. Seretta is now coauthoring (with Dot Graham) a book about test automation patterns.

Patterns in Test Automation: Issues and Solutions SOLD OUT

Testers often encounter problems when automating test execution. The surprising thing is that many testers encounter the very same problems, over and over again. These problems often have known solutions, yet many testers are not aware of them. Recognizing the commonality of these test automation issues and their solutions, Seretta Gamba and Dorothy Graham have organized them into a set of test automation patterns. A pattern is a general, reusable solution to a commonly occurring problem.
