Test automation and software craftsmanship

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

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.

Today I had a discussion with Michael Bolton on Twitter about software releases. As I felt that my point did not come across correctly in the condensed tweet format, I decided to write an article instead.

This is my talk from SeleniumConf 2017 Berlin about how the QA and test automation teams were set up for trivago's main product, how they used to work, and how we gradually introduced the test automation topic. This is not mainly about the technological aspects and challenges but more about how and why we established certain processes.
