Podcast Episode 31 – Why we automate

Thanks for joining us for another podcast episode. This week we talk about why we automate but we start with what automation is and its value.

Automation to us is a valuable tool that should focus on enhancing testing, this doesn’t always mean automating test cases but can also mean automating tasks and activities. Automation isn’t a silver bullet, it has both an initial investment and on going investment cost that shouldn’t be ignored.

We mention Richard Bradshaw’s Ministry of Testing – TestBash 2015 “Automation in testing” talk. You can find the talk in the Ministry of Testing Dojo here if you’re a Pro member.

We hope you enjoyed this conversation we’ll certainly be covering different areas of automation over the coming months so please do you share your feedback and an particular questions.
