Man and Machine: Combining Tools with the Human Mind
When you think of automated testing, you usually think of computer software executing unattended tests. When you think of manual testing, you think of a human being executing tests without the aid of software. Instead of thinking of tests as either automated or manual, Jonathan Kohl explores ways you can blend the two. He helps you answer the questions, “How can automation improve my exploratory and scripted testing work?” and “What do we lose if we run these tests without any human supervision?” With numerous examples, Jonathan demonstrates the different mindset he uses to implement test automation as he highlights techniques from a hybrid testing approach. He demonstrates examples from his personal testing experiences and from other disciplines to change your mind on man and machine testing.
