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.
What impact do you think it’s having on testing?
Is it for the better of testing or not?
