We know how to make our test automation good enough for today, yet we are looking for more. How to drive our test automation efforts forward, and what ideas to bring in to help us improve?
This talk shares you my three core lessons from working to increase the extent and value of test automation efforts with a variety of teams.
1) Without clean code, all the test automation in the world will not save you.
2) Create a mindshare between testers, test automators and developers.
3) There’s more to test automation landscape than the usual suspects.
With every day being a learning opportunity, the good enough of today is not good enough of tomorrow.
