Introduction Every force has two sides. “You find balance – you find peace of mind”, ー Master Yoda would say. Each of us aspires to become a Master. Our main weapon on this path is information and analysis. May the Force be with you in automated testing.

1) Light side of automated testing At some stage of your product lifecycle, you can find that manual testing isn’t enough anymore. We will highlight those situations when you need to automate testing to make it more effective and beneficial.

2) Dark side of automated testing You may think that automated testing is a panacea, and it can solve all your issues related to testing. However, be aware that automated testing, just like anything else, has a dark side as well. So welcome to the dark side of automated testing: the problems that might occur during implementation of automated testing in the project; why it isn’t effective and reasons why you might not need automated testing.

3) How to stay on the light side Automated testing can be an effective medicine or a dangerous poison for your project. What should be covered by automated testing, how to implement it properly, and what tools can be used for it.

It was a bit hard to follow the talk, perhaps due to the pronunciation, or perhaps due to the tough matter. The story could have been lightened by adding lots of examples (testing a product checkout, how to test, tools to test).

It was interesting!

The presentation was quite interesting and informative. From my opinion, presenter delivered information, it was quite hard to follow all of it, however main idea and examples were well described. Going forward, I would improve presentation slides with more images and less text so it might be easy to follow and process information while listening to the presenter. For the 30 minutes presentation I would also add couple of real life examples to bring and visualize business value which shows return on investment for automation activity.

Good talk, but a bit hard to follow at times and some slides had a bit too much text on to be readable - some more images / or examples would have helped. The tips provided however were useful and will be reading into further. Thanks!
