Whether you are only considering automation or have years of experience, this course can help you improve your chances for success. Take advantage of Linda Hayes’ twenty years of automation experience to learn how to use frameworks to accelerate your test automation effort, dramatically shorten the learning curve, allow non-technical analysts to develop and execute automated tests, and simplify test library management and maintenance.
Get the facts on what automation can—and can't—do for you, and find out how to secure management commitment. Learn how to avoid the traps and pitfalls that doom projects, including unrealistic expectations. Understand when automation is appropriate and when it isn’t, and how to maximize the right opportunities. Linda provides detailed, step-by-step instructions for selecting and implementing a framework and takes you on a guided tour of five different approaches—from beginner to advanced—with analyses of the advantages and disadvantages of each approach. Learn how to use these practical and proven approaches with any commercial or internally developed testing tool for Web, client/server, mainframe, and character-based applications. Linda provides real world examples, new knowledge, and skills you can use as the framework for a new automation project or to make an existing project more successful.
