Software test automation has moved beyond a luxury to become a necessity. Applications and systems have grown ever larger and more complex, and manual testing simply cannot keep up. As technology changes, and more organizations move into agile development, testing must adapt—and quickly. Test automation is essential, but poor automation is wasteful—how do you know where your efforts will take you?
The case studies in this book will give you insights into what makes good automation really work (or not). Applications include complex government systems, medical devices, business process development, mobile apps, cloud migration and others. With over 40 contributors, including high-profile experts, you will learn about both technical and management issues, failures and successes, brilliant ideas and disastrous decisions, and specific lessons and tips you can use.
