Learn how modellling is a great way to capture what we know about our products and spot automation opportunities
- Richard Bradshaw
How do we know what to automate? How do we spot opportunities? By learning how our systems work. The challenge we face is understanding what information we want to gather that will be useful to us. Then, organise all the information we’ve learnt into something that is easy to use to identify what and when to automate. We can achieve this by carrying out modelling techniques to help guide us in what questions to ask about a product and arrange what we’ve learnt in a way that is easy to understand. That’s why in this course we’ll:
Discuss what modelling is and how it’s value in testing and automating
Explore different modelling techniques
Build a model that we can use to identify automation opportunities
So join us as we deep dive into our products and spot the many places we can use automation to assist our testing.
This course is part of the Automation in Testing Pathway.
