Applying eXtreme Programming Techniques to Automated Testing

Neill McCarthy, BJSS

"Automating manual tests was taking too long and we believed that overhead would become too high to maintain the automated tests. As the code base evolved and expanded, the performance and value of older automated tests deteriorated noticeably. What to do? Taking a lesson from developers in an eXtreme programming (XP) framework, we began applying these practices to our test automation project." Join Neill McCarthy as he shares his test team's adventurous journey from a traditional, plan-driven automation project to a set of agile practices including test-driven development. Learn from their failures, triumphs, and measures of success as Neill outlines the new automation framework that he employs today.
