As we are in the middle of our test automation webinar series on Test Huddle, I thought it might be good to reflect on where test automation is in relation to the larger field of software testing.
In a recent interview he gave about his talk at Agile Testing Days @friendlytester said that he had been told before that automation could replace testing. It seems that this might be sometime away but I think it is fairly evident that automation has grown to be a major part of day to day testing for many testers.
I realise that test automation has been around for 20+ years. However it’s latest guise with the large number of tools that you can get with it has definitely changed testing roles somewhat.
