In this tongue-in-cheek talk I will show how easy it is to disrupt or utterly ruin a test automation project. By describing seven proven methods to reach this end, I intend to give managers, testers and automators the means to recognize early on if their automation is in danger.
And by ‘warning’ against possible defences I will actually give them the tools to counter and solve such issues
I spent last couple of years performing, talking, writing and listening about software testing.
But what is software testing? I am told my job is to “break software”. But why break it, it looks good?! I like the programmers, they are my friends. And, as Michael Bolton says, “We don’t break software, it was already broken when we got it”.
I sure don’t break software for living, but I do something way better and much more satisfying - I break clichés about software testing.
So, my job as your guide in your journey in testing will be to break some clichés from the past in order to build the mindset of the modern tester.
