About the talk

Topic: IT

Wait, That’s Not Right - Troy Walsh | Principle at Magenic

Automation fails, and that’s ok. The problem is that far too often we, as automation engineers, are not prepared for these failures. The end results of this is tests that fail, but don’t help us figure out why. Even worse is test code that is overly defensive and passes when it should fail. A test that always passes is worse than no test at all.

The focus of this presentation will be on creating automation that fails better. Troy Walsh will talk about logging and how it can make our failures valuable. He will explore error handling and how it can be both a blessing and a curse, and will also cover test data management and how it can make failing far more useful.

From this session, attendees will learn:

- How to fail better

- The importance of logging

- The importance of effective test management
