Test automation and software craftsmanship

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

The make tool has been around since 1976 and is a prime example of mature software. In this article, I will give you an introduction to using it as a CI/CD tool. All examples are available on Github

The code examples for my presentation "Simplifying your test runs with Make" for Nordic Testing Days 2021 are now online on Github.

This article will show how to set Github actions parameters to a value that is based on another parameter's value. This is a very flexible approach for inputs with specific options.

This is my talk about the processes and technologies of end to end testing for trivago's core web application. This was a live broadcast for the Breakpoint 2020 online testing conference hosted by BrowserStack.

Breakpoint 2020 is a 4-day virtual summit on everything testing. As I will be one of the speakers, BrowserStack did an interview with me.

In this post, I will show you a simple way to take an existing Jenkins (test) pipeline and run it continuously until it reaches a maximum number of runs. We use this to run our complete test suite continuously during the night in order to gather failure data.
