In this video, Meaghan Lewis describes best practices for automation to follow that will help ensure a well-maintained automation test suite over time.
- [Instructor] Test automation is an ongoing process.…This process works out best when it starts…with a strong foundation and continues…to build steadily over time.…It requires that the team invests in the tests…and follow good standards.…There are three simple rules that…can make all the difference when it comes…to maintaining a healthy test suite.…The first rule is valuable test.…Your automation tests should always be delivering value.…It's a good idea to revisit tests over time…and have a retrospective on them regularly…to determine if tests need improvements.…
It's all about quality over quantity.…Focus on automating what's important…rather than about how many tests are written.…Treat test code like production code…and give it the same level of nurturing and attention.…The second rule is about reliable tests.…It is imperative that tests provide…the same result every single time.…Have a plan in place for mitigating failures.…Failure is going to be inevitable…but it's necessary to having a plan…for addressing the failed test.…
