About the Book
One of the hottest topics today in software testing is automation. Why is that? Because of multiple reasons ranging from using a tool to perform the mundane tasks to improving a team's ability to produce reliable and stable software quickly. But the common mistake testers and companies make is jumping in blindly by just grabbing a tool and scripting everything as fast as they can. This just leads to flaky tests, hard to maintain automation code, and failure. They make the mistake of putting the cart before the horse.
This book focuses on the front-end processes — the work involved in implementing and maintaining test automation and emphasizing a tool agnostic mindset. The information is based on multiple years of work experience using many different tools with a wide range of application & development technologies. This information comes from my experiences in the Software Testing Trenches.
