BIG Testing: The Five Keys to Test Automation at ScaleNew
Test automation has become a must, especially in agile and DevOps projects with their goals of continuous integration and fast deployment. We know that test automation is a deciding factor in achieving competitive strength, as it contributes to faster time-to-market and higher quality-to-market in software delivery. Even though powerful automation technologies like Selenium are available, they alone do not give you scalability in testing big and complex systems with their many components, workflows, and configurations. To help you learn how to achieve scalability in automated testing, Hans Buwalda explores five key areas that need attention: design of the tests, processes around testing, testability of the application under test, tooling and infrastructure, and availability and organization of necessary expertise. See what you can do in each area to build success in automation of large and complex test suites—while keeping them manageable and maintainable. Join Hans as he examines how virtualization and the cloud can contribute to your automation goals, how techniques like “testing in production” can work for you, and how to manage global outsourcing.
