Automation Framework Essentials

Automation is critical in today’s software delivery lifecycle, and yet many organizations struggle to keep their automation running. How can we mitigate difficulties and get consistent automation runs and results we can trust? The secret is implementing a solid automation framework, but that isn’t as easy as it seems. Chris Loder has built several automation frameworks over his career and has learned what works—and, more importantly, what doesn’t. This tutorial will cover what an automation framework is, the benefits of having one, and the keys to a successful framework, including reliability, repeatability, and maintainability. Chris will share examples of his current and past automation frameworks and show you how to make sure yours is solid. Learn how an investment in your automation can pay off immensely. Come away with ideas and a plan to start your very own automation framework or to improve your existing one!
