At the BEGINNING Of the project: Yay!! Lets automate and cover all test scenarios!! Lets work towards increasing the test coverage !!
After 1 year: Regression suite is too bulky!! I can't maintain it anymore!! Its too flaky!!
Does this conversation ring a bell? Well, this is a common scenario in projects. The UI test automation starts as a saftey net and then becomes a trap net!
Heavy Functional tests layer → Long execution time → Low confidence → Problem of Maintainence
This talk will address these problems in an Agile project. Some solutions that worked in our team. How working as a Team would help prevent these problem?
Given you have a PRODUCT to test
When you start testing it
Then STOP testing it
And start USING it
In this talk I would like to address how important it is for the whole team to use to product to see the good, the bad and the ugly side of the product you are building which are otherwise unknown to the team until they go live.
