Automation Meet-Up: Successes, Challenges and Lessons Learned

About the Topic

Test automation is essential to keep up with the velocity of Agile sprints and is key to reducing the cycle time and effort of a large and growing manual regression suite. There are various degrees of success with automation with some testing organizations achieving 70% automated tests while other testing groups try and abandon automation due to a lack of ROI or a huge maintenance headache.

This gathering is a perfect opportunity to meet other people facing the same successes and challenges with automation that you are. Come prepared to celebrate what obstacles you’ve overcome, discuss the aspects of automation that work well, and ask others for advice on what’s preventing you from meeting your short and long term automation goals.

This is your opportunity to contribute to the Chicagoland QA community!
  • Are you using open source or commercial tools?
  • Which tools are you using and do they meet your needs?
  • How do you select the right tests to automate?
  • What's your automation framework?
  • How do you address reporting across your manual and automated tests?
  • How do you integrate test automation with Dev/Ops?
  • What skills are needed and how do you find or develop these skills?
  • And more.....
