I will be presenting a Keynote at the Test Automation Day on 18th June 2015.
The audience appears to be a mix of practitioners and managers which is useful since I plan to talk about my experiences of automation from a perspective of a practitioner, and as a manager.
I know what it is like to be a practitioner who is managed by people with no automation experience, so I plan to offer advice from my experience on how to help those managers.
Similarly, I’ll include advice for those managers, on how to deal with and recruit, the automation practitioners:
- without putting irrelevant overhead in their way
- without being bamboozled and led down the wrong path
I’ll also delve into my experience to provide as many practical examples as I can on simple steps to take to ‘get’ or ‘keep’ your automation working, focused and improving.
It should be fun to pull out lessons from stories of my mistakes. And I’m sure I’ll learn from revisiting those experiences.
