Start and Succeed!  A brief tutorial for test automation success!

Are you looking to get started in test automation?  Or perhaps "restarted"...? 

Many organizations have started and stopped automation several times - unable to achieve success. 

Chris draws on his over 20 years of Automation experience and shares his extensive insight into what it takes to have a successful automation program and how to keep it that way!

Chris will cover a range of important topics and answer common questions such as:

  • who should be doing what roles on the team
  • how to avoid critical technical issues that can make or break your automation 
  • how to design your tests for automation success 
  • what makes a great automated test

If you want to reduce your regression efforts and improve overall quality, a solid test automation foundation is essential!  Get guidance from a true guru on how to get started, or restarted, on the path to automation success!
