How to Prioritize What to Test

The bigger question for software development teams embarking on their test automation journey is “What to test?” My rule of thumb is “Start with the scariest code”. This presentation shares with you a framework for evaluating the ROI of writing a test for a feature and prioritizing what to test.

It can be intimidating for inexperienced teams embarking on their test automation journey for an existing code base. There is so much to test, and so many ways to test. You can often see teams stuck with debating on where to start and what tools to use and best practices:
“We should start from unit tests”
“No, integration tests are better!”
“Should we use tool A or tool B?”

And the worst that could happen is decision paralysis and inaction.
