Test automation and software craftsmanship

Benjamin Bischoff, Test Automation Engineer (SDET) at trivago N.V. (ex Ubisoft)

Lately, I have been thinking about the old discussion about the purpose, pros and cons of automated tests.

There are different opinions when it comes to test automation and I will try to break them down one by one.

In my open source projects (e.g. my Cluecumber Maven Plugin for Cucumber reports), I usually keep all the code in GitHub monorepos. This way, multiple projects that belong together are easier to maintain because you only need to checkout one repository instead of many.

A little disclaimer first: this is not about bragging! I would just like to take the oportunity to tell you a little bit about my journey into test automation. In fact I presented this during the Nordic Testing Days 2019 conference in Tallinn, Estonia.
