Talk Description
Building a successful regression checking strategy (or an automated regression testing strategy as it’s more commonly known) is hard, but it doesn't have to be. To avoid common mistakes of brittle checks, bad choices in checking tools and wasted time fixing broken checks, we need to take a step back and ask ourselves why we are running these checks and what risks we are mitigating.

In this masterclass, Mark Winteringham shares his experiences of how to write an effective checking strategy that can answer these questions and, in return, help us deliver a series of useful checking frameworks that assist our teams in a meaningful way.

Come to see what has been achieved after 18 months of work and discuss the results.
What you’ll learn

By the end of this masterclass, you'll be able to:

  • Define regression checking
  • Realise the benefits of building your own automation model
  • Use project and product risks to guide what to automate
  • Implement your strategy as a team
