Growing Manual Testers into AutomatorsCamille Bell
schedule 1 year agoSold Out!
You probably started your Agile journey with Scrum, which helped. But regression testing still takes forever. New feature tests aren't what they could be and are hard to complete within the Sprint.
If you have active product owners, the POs helped to improve your product, but there is still a disconnect, between the user story and the tests. And how do you test "as a, I want, so that"?
Now you hear you need Agile technical practices to keep improving and you find you need to automate. What are you going to do with your testers? They really, really know your business, but they don't code.
If you are a manager, a tester or a product owner, come hear Camille as she shares her experience successfully teaching manual testers Automated Test Driven Development and showing product owners how to write great Acceptance Criteria that are easy to automate.
In this session you will learn:
- How to get your product owners, testers and developers to understand each other
- How to make your business scenarios unambiguous and testable
- How to avoid brittle tests that need frequent rewriting
- Which tools and languages are better for testers to learn and why
- Strategies and techniques for testers to learn test automation
- Where to find inexpensive and free resources to get started
