How Can You Contribute to Automation If You Don't Know How to Write Code?
Hello, I'm Luke. I've got a question I'd like you to help me answer: 'How Can You Contribute to Automation If You Don't Know How to Write Code?'.
I've been asked this question many times, I've answered this question many times. However, during this talk, I'd like to answer this question with you.
We'll look at what assumptions are immediately made when we hear this question and how that influences the way we answer it.
We'll explore how to unpack and break down this question, asking small focused questions such as: what is automation anyway? What is the purpose of automation? How can I utilise my strengths when it comes to automation?
My aim with this talk is to highlight all the numerous ways testers can contribute to automation without writing code, as after all, not everyone in the flight crew knows how to fly the airplane.
What You'll Learn
- Identify assumptions when asked questions
- Define what automation is
- How testers can make friends with automation
