Customers demand quality products. Automated regression testing is a method to deliver a quality product. However, several considerations need to be made before committing to implementing automated testing. For example, will automation introduce unnecessary work in the development process? Will team headcount need to be increased? How much will the tools cost? What additional value, if any, was gained in the end?
This presentation will demonstrate how the test-first mindset of the ATDD (Acceptance Test Driven Development) process naturally opens the doors for automated testing. We will see how ATDD can actually simplify the development process and allow teams to continuously improve to become truly agile. A demonstration of an automated regression test suite in action will illustrate just one of many added benefits to products implemented using ATDD.

Learning Outcomes:
  • * Learn how simplifying development processes can produce quick value
  • * Develop a common language that developers, testers, and Product Owners can all understand
  • * Demonstrate other advantages that early user acceptance testing can continually produce value
  • * How to choose the correct test automation tools to implement your automated regression test suite
  • * How the refined process benefits the team
  • * How the organization benefits from the value of a test-first mindset
