However, you commonly hear people say Test Automation when they actually mean Automated Testing, to be frank, they have become synonyms.
Software testers are expected to come up with a lot of test artifacts during the process of software testing. The traditional test artifacts are time-intensive, bulky and their structure do not support the agile approach of software development. When working in an agile environment, software testers work in highly compressed test execution cycles.
The world of a software house is a constant search for compromise between quality and costs. In many cases, the cost-cutting starts from the test automation. Then you start to talk about ROI but recognize that numbers are not on your side. We were there and what we have found out is that only a complete change in our approach allows us to find common ground with our clients.
This talk shares the mistakes made in the initial software testing phase while creating automated tests for mobile apps using Appium, the reasons behind those mistakes, and the solutions which helped to reduce Appium tests execution time by 50%.
