Every QA team begins to endure flaky test failures as their test automation scales.

The price of this flakiness grows steadily as an ever-increasing amount of QA effort is spent debugging automation code and re-running tests manually.

This presentation will discuss some code & process techniques we use consistently to make our automation tests run reliably the first time.

Takeaways from the talk:

  • Investing in a small amount of planning and code improvement early in the process of building test automation will save a large amount of time and effort in the future.
  • QA teams at any stage of building their test automation can consider adding some of these techniques to their own processes, or use them as inspiration to design their techniques for increasing automation reliability.
