Test Automation Day 2015 Slides and Notes


I attended the Test Automation Day 2015 in Rotterdam to present a Keynote on "Lessons learned with Automation".

During the research for the talk I delved into the history of automation and was fascinated to discover such a close correlation between the issues and controversies of the 1950s and the concerns and issues with 'Test Automation" in the present day.

You can find my slides and some supporting notes on my conference talk page.

Successful Test Automation for Managers

Illustration by Herb Lebowitz from the cover of "Automation" by Carl Dreher 

On the 29th April 2015, I presented "Successful Test Automation for Managers" at the Test Management Summit in London.

The focus of this session was a discussion about automation from a management perspective. This would allow me to draw upon the experiences of the managers in the room and create a lively discussion.

Partly of the aim of allowing managers with less technical experience draw upon the experiences of those more technical.

Also to understand the concerns that managers have with automation and allow those with more automation experience, help to address their concerns and issues.

Slides, references, and a more detailed write up are available on the conference page and the Selenium Simplified site.
