Your boss has given you the “Automate Everything” directive. Is he expecting to reduce costs? Implement the latest silver-bullet tool that will save the company? Increase test coverage to avoid future embarrassment? How do you respond? Jerry Penner shows you how to manage expectations by asking the right questions and framing the capabilities of computer-aided testing in business terms. He talks about what should and should not be automated so you can find more of the important bugs faster. He then presents a list of free and nearly free tools and gives examples of where & when to use them. You’ll leave with a toolbox filled with tips and strategies you can take back to the office right away to make your testing life easier.
