Making the switch to automated functional testing can seem daunting. There is a wealth of information available, and a great deal of details you’re sure you should be thinking of but don’t necessarily know. Which aspects are important, which are less important? Obviously, many priorities are individual to specific projects, but a list of points to consider would be a great help when faced with the choices available.

Based on our experiences with customers searching for test tools, and our own experiences of writing automated tests and developing a test tool, we’d like to present a tool-neutral checklist of aspects to think about when starting out automating tests.

Participants will benefit from our expertise and experience in a variety of test projects and learn what to consider when starting automation. After the talk, the checklist will be made available for download.
