Speaker: Seretta Gamba

Time: 09:00, Monday


Just as to be able to drive a car you need more than to know that it has a steering wheel, a gas pedal, brakes and a clutch, so with test automation getting a tool and learning to code will not make you a test automator. Seretta Gamba helps you get your ‘Licence to Automate’ with examples, exercises and discussions. Seretta shows you not only where most novice automators go wrong, but how to do it right from the very beginning! Such problems have long been solved by experienced practitioners and their solutions have been collected by Dorothy Graham and Seretta in the Test Automation Patterns. Seretta introduces you to the Test Automation Patterns Wiki, explains how to use it and lets you try it out with intuitive exercises.
