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

The recording of my talk "Smoke Tests and Mirrors - the Magic in Test Automation" is now available! This is based on a series of blog posts connecting magic and software principles.

I visited the Romanian Testing Conference (RTC) 2022 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania and presented my talk "Smoke Tests and Mirrors - the Magic in Test Automation" there. This is my review of the conference, taking place 16th-17th of June.

In this article of the "Magic principles in test automation" series, I will talk about the concept of time lapse which is the key to powerful misdirection.

Part nine of my close-up magic and software series for YouTube is finally available. This one is called "A Coin Trick About QA".

I co-wrote the article "Change in the World of Testing - New Misconceptions from Old Folklore" together with Maaret Pyhäjärvi.
