Your Automated Execution Does Not Have to be Flaky

Reading Time: 1 minute

Have you experienced flaky test automation? Particularly GUI Automation? Have you accepted flakiness as the normal state of affairs? If so, this webinar is for you.

Automated execution does not have to fail intermittently, even through the GUI. In this webinar Alan will attempt to remove the word ‘flakiness’ from your vocabulary  Your test execution is not flaky. It is too easy to say ‘flaky’ and then blame ‘GUI execution’. This is too easy an excuse. You have experienced intermittent failures.  You have chosen to live with them, you haven’t fixed the causes of intermittent failure.

In this webinar Alan will explore the myths of flakiness so you never use those as excuses again. He will also cover common reasons for intermittent failures in automated execution, and common patterns for resolving intermittent execution.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Your Test Execution is not ‘flaky’, it is failing intermittently
  2. It is possible to remove intermittent failures, even when automating through a GUI
  3. Commons solutions: synchronisation, data control, environmental isolation

    Great webinar, provides a handy list of possible reasons for ‘flakiness’ and the solutions – or at least where to start looking for them.

    I hope the presentation will be available for download soon! 🙂
