Lou Robinson – Delusions of Automated Testing
Speech bullet points:
Assumptions made about automated testing
Common mistakes people make when trying to automate tests
How automated testing is dividing the testing community
How we can use our skills, as QA Engineers or testers, to overcome these problems
I’m currently the Head of Quality at Sylvera. Over the last decade, I’ve spent time in roles as a test analyst, an automation engineer, a QA Lead and other variations on those same roles in and around the Machine Learning and Data industries.
In more recent years, my focus has been on leadership, strategy, and championing the need for a holistic vision of quality across entire organizations, rather than just in Engineering. However, I’ve also spent a good number of years building out automated test frameworks in multiple languages, trying to deliver scalable solutions that are easy to read, understand and maintain.
