Development of software today must be fast paced to follow the demand from the customers. In order to support this demand automated testing is the solution most companies turn to, but most fail in introducing this form for testing.

This talk will focus on a business perspective of automated testing, and what benefits the business gets from automated testing. Also I will talk about the pitfalls that often make companies fail in automating testing and finally I will give my advice how to introduce automated testing so it does not fail.

    Hi Bjoern,

    I assume that the premise of the talk is that everyone knows that automated testing is good, but many teams fail in implementing it right. But there is some mismatch in the abstract and outline given. The abstract focus on the importance while the outline is about how to get started and the common pitfalls. Can you update it so that both reflect the same theme?

    Also, share the outline of the slides for the talk and any video of your presentation for us to understand your presentation style better.

      Hi Leena

      I read the abstract and outline again, and added some in the end of the abstract. The idea in this talk will be to discuss what the busniess gains from automated testing, the pitfalls and then my plan for introducing automated testing.

      About the premise then I will establish that in the first part of the talk, but yes to run DevOps/CD you will need some form of automated testing.

      Thanks for the tips on links etc :) I added links to my presentation this week and also pictures from the presentation.

      I hope this helps otherwise ask.

      Bjørn :)
