PNSQC May Meetup: Test Automation Deep Dive
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM PST

Event Description

Join us this month for an in-depth discussion on boundary cases and good practices when using test automation.


Given time, we’ll discuss:

  • Choosing the Right Strategy and Framework: How to select the most effective strategy and framework for your organization’s needs.
  • Automation vs. Manual Testing: Should you automate all your tests? Let’s discuss what should be automated and what should remain manual.
  • Structuring Frameworks: Best practices for structuring frameworks, regardless of the type of testing you’re doing.
  • Managing Test Data: From hard-coded to dynamic data, discover how to handle test data and determine who is responsible.
  • Common Pitfalls in Test Automation: What are some stumbling blocks encountered in test automation? How did you overcome them? (Or, if you haven’t, let’s see if we can suggest a solution).
  • Beyond Regression Tests: Explore test automation tools that go beyond regression testing.

We invite you to join us and bring your own questions and insights to this deep dive into test automation.
