Automated Testing An Experience Report and How to Get Started in Your
Ever wondered how to begin automation on an Agile team? Looking for a
process to automate existing or new tests?
Few things slow down a team more than technical debt and a large manual
testing process. In fact most organizations define how fast they
can deliver value to their customers by how frequently they can run
their manual regression testing. This becomes even more critical
when your team is working with other teams across an enterprise and you
aren't leveraging automated testing. At some point your code base
will become so burdensome to maintain and test that the significant
portion of the organization efforts and money will be focused on
supporting existing code vs. delivering new value to its customers.
If this sound familiar to you, do yourself a favor and grab some
teammates and come to this month's AglieKC meeting. Tina Lockwood
and Aimee DeWitt of Cerner will share their experiences, lessons learned
and best practices with leveraging automated testing at scale.
Automated testing is too important to neglect, yet because most
organizations don't know how to start, they continue to suffer.
This session may be the catalyst your organization needs!
Tina Lockwood is a Solution Manager for the Automation Development team.
She has been at Cerner for 18 years and the last 10 years focused on
automated testing and design for our internally developed automation
solution. Her team has been successful in Agile using automation
for 5 years.
Aimee DeWitt is a Sr. Test Analyst at Cerner Corporation working on a
new Web Application. She has been at Cerner for 7 years and been a
part of the Agile process for 5 years. She has experience in
working with automation on multiple platforms.
Hope to see you
