Test Automation and Boxing: A Surprising Combination

Boxing is all about strategy, technique, and agility; the same goes for test automation. You may be surprised to learn that Hajer Ben Moussa is an avid boxer. To be successful in test automation, you need to have a game plan, the right tools, and the ability to adapt to changing situations. Hajer will walk you through a step-by-step strategy to build your test automation game plan. Join her as she gets you warmed up, lays out training tactics, and teaches you the how, when, and where of the fight so that your critical tests are the knockout punch in your belt. She’ll also reveal how to playback, analyze and learn from your results for the next round! Hajer will also share some of her painful Test Automation losses, the ones that left her on the floor down and out, so that ultimately you can learn from her playbook where automation can go wrong, causing delays, errors, and even financial losses! You will walk away thinking like a test automation champion.
