Patterns of Automation
Many organizations are introducing test automation only to find out it is more difficult than they thought it would be. Good test automation requires good coding practices. Good test automation requires good design. To do anything else will lead to spaghetti code that is hard to maintain or update. If you’re new to coding or new to automation it is difficult to know where to start. Join Cheezy as he talks about and demonstrates lessons he has learned while helping numerous organization adopt test automation. He will show you the patterns he uses to keep automation code simple and clean. He will also demonstrate techniques that you can use to make your automation code more maintainable. Finally, he will write code to implement these patterns taking them from theory to implementation.
Outline/Structure of the Talk
This presentation will be a combination of introducing a proven automation pattern and then live coding a test that demonstrates these patterns.
- Attendees will learn design patterns that can be applied to a test automation codebase that will make the test suites more flexible and easier to maintain.
- They will learn the importance of keeping the quality of the automation code high.
