What is test automation? Writing tests? Yes and no. Just as writing code is not all programming, writing autotests is not fully automated testing.
Tests should work, be used, and be useful. All your tests are useful? Just try to answer four questions:
- Colleagues trust your tests?
- Your test runs are stable and persistent?
- Test suites are running fast?
- Test results are clear to those for whom you write them?
In this talk, we will try to understand what needs to be done for testing to bring results, and not only testers themselves could evaluate the testing contribution.
