Code vs. Codeless Test Automation: How to Choose?

As codeless automation tools rise in popularity, we'll take a deeper look to see what lies beneath. While many believe that codeless solutions will continue to gain in popularity due to the simplicity of recording tests which empower non-developers with the ability to automate. You'll be surprised how far from the truth this really is.

In this talk, we will compare the pros and cons of both code and codeless options, which will help you make a more clear and sound decision regarding your automation stack.
