Trials and Tribulations of Test Testing

A reliable automated user interface test suite for web applications, absolutely requires that the tests themselves be validated. That seems obvious, and it seems simple. But in practice this is the one of the things that engineers and teams skip over or perform poorly. Why is that? Perhaps testing tests seems redundant or maybe it is not clear what validating an automated test really means. Perhaps it is because engineers just lack guidance and practical tips on how to best go about validating automated tests. Could your own automated testing endeavor benefit from guidance on validating your tests? Or maybe some tips for helping other members of you team? Then join Brian for a dive into automated test testing and learn how much testing a test tester can test if a test tester could test tests.

Session Takeaways:

  1. Why is it so important to properly validate automated tests.
  2. Why are automated tests so poorly validated.
  3. What to look for when validating tests.
  4. Ways to successfully perform test validation.
