How to Find Your Way in the Automation Framework Jungle - Wim Selles

How to Find Your Way in the Automation Framework Jungle - Wim Selles

Description:

The automation framework world currently looks like a jungle, each month a new framework is created and shared on GitHub. They all promise the same, better, faster, smarter, but is this really the case? Have you ever thought about selection criteria for selecting a new automation framework?

During this presentation, I'm going to share what I have seen being used as selection criteria on how to select an automation framework. I'll discuss them all, like:

  • grab and hope
  • I used this before
  • This is hot
  • It’s made by Facebook, it must be good
  • I have a screw, I certainly can use this hammer to get it into the wood
  • I trust nobody, let’s build a new one

But I will also share my experiences when I needed to select an automation framework in the past. I will guide you through a little bit more structured process that might help you select that automation framework that suits the (web) app the best, is the best future proof and opens the way to do proper test automation in your CI/CD pipeline.
