Your Automated Execution Does Not Have to Be Flaky

Presented as a UKStar 2018 webinar. I show how to void the use of Flaky to describe intermittent failure for your automated execution. Common causes of intermittent execution and some solutions.

UKStar Webinar February 12th 2018

The first webinar of the UKStar 2018 Webinar Series I presented an overview of how to avoid intermittent failures in your automated execution.

Title: Your Automated Execution Does Not Have to be Flaky

This webinar is for anybody who has accepted ‘flaky’ test automation. Alan believes that to describe and accept your test execution as flaky is merely an excuse. In this webinar he will explore the myths of flakiness, so that you never use those excuses again!

Have you experienced flaky test automation? In this webinar, Alan Richardson plans to convince you that you haven’t. Instead you have experienced the result of not resolving the causes of Intermittent execution. Alan will explore some common causes and solutions of intermittent behaviour. Why? So you never say the phrase, “flaky tests”, ever again.
