There are many mis-conceptions and perceptions around automation as it pertains to software testing, so in this talk, Melissa Tondi, Director of Quality, Guild Education will discuss those and set the record straight on what automation is and, more importantly, what it is NOT. The term automation as it pertains to software testing has been a driving force in defining the software testing industry. For many years, we’ve used it as a catch-all to determine whether a tester, testing team, or IT organization is successful. In this talk, Melissa will discuss the five misconceptions that are pervasive within companies – including using a percentage or number of test cases to define success and specifying a title/role for those who automate and matrixing that role across teams versus embedding it within the project they are supporting. Melissa will discuss re-booting our current thinking of automation and show tactics to address the five misconceptions that have contributed to what many of us would consider one of the wedges that divide the testing industry. In addition, she will share practical and proven approaches you can take back with you to show immediate and valuable results.

Melissa Tondi will host the Keynote Session “Automation, we’re doing it Wrong” that will take place on Thursday May 25.
