Why Do We Automate?

Throughout my career in testing and automation, I’ve seen (and created!) a lot of horribly ineffective automation ‘solutions’. I am slowly learning to do better, but I still see a lot of engineers, teams and even entire organizations that are spending a lot of time and effort on automation that fails to deliver on its promises.

In this talk, I’ll share with you what I think is the key to doing better when it comes to automation. To better supporting our testing efforts with automation. To teaching people about automation in a more sustainable and future-proof manner.

Are you wondering what that key looks like? I think it all starts with the ‘why?’…


Treat test code as application code by linting

In my experience, test code does not get treated with high coding standards as application code does, because as many people tend to say: "it's just for testing". As testing is a critical part of the SDLC, why not?

By applying linting (static code analysis) tools to test code, preferably the same tools as for application code, tests can be improved which can eventually lead to better maintainability, readability and more robust tests.
