Keynote Amy Phillips ''Beware of automating yourself in''

Teams switching to Agile and DevOps practices place increasing emphasis on fast-feedback. We’re aware that batching up large changes can increase the risk and there’s growing demand for repeatable, and reliable, build, test, and release pipelines. After years of testing being treated as an afterthought, it’s finally seen as an integral part of successful delivery. To keep up with the fast-paced delivery cycles extensive testing phases have to replace manual test phases with automated test suites.

As testers this approach can fit perfectly with our automation desires, often shaped by industry pressure to turn all testers into test automation engineers. People talk about “upskilling” manual testers, and the never-ending conversation about whether testers should code continues. We’re sold a dream where all boring and repetitive work is painlessly automated away to a single button push. But is it really this simple? Find out during Test Automation day 2018!
