Introducing Keyword-driven Test Automation

Keyword-driven test automation has entered the software testing mainstream. It has proven to be a powerful approach to reach a high level of automation with the lowest possible effort. It brings the flexibility, manageability, and maintainability that cost-effective software test automation demands. Hans Buwalda introduces keyword-driven test automation and shows how to make it successful. The basis for the tutorial are his “5% Challenges of Test Automation”—no more than 5% of your test cases should be executed manually, and no more than 5% of your total testing effort should be used to achieve this level of automation. In addition to the technical aspects of keyword automation, Hans addresses the many non-technical ingredients required for success—having an automation-friendly test design, managing processes, and organizing teams. Hans also addresses specific topics, like agile test development, testing technical software, and testing graphics and multi-media, which empower you to make keyword-driven testing work for you.
