Agile Test Automation

Agile Test Automation

Category: Agile & Lean


  • Most agile teams deliver potentially shippable software at the end of each iteration (one to four weeks), but some agile teams even ship working software every day. Regression confidence can be achieved with the help of automated tests, which many teams struggle with. This class will teach automation techniques to improve regression testing, story and feature testing, and enhancement of exploratory testing. Test Driven Development techniques, precise test and tool selection, appropriate automation design, and team collaboration can be combined to fully integrate testing into Agile delivery teams and provide the efficiency necessary for project success. Explore the many ways automation supports agile testing activities. Test automation purpose, theory, and principles are reviewed. We look at how test automation is implemented in diverse organizations. The course presents many types of automation illustrated with example test descriptions, source code samples, and example test scripts.
