Test automation and software craftsmanship

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

This is the recording of my webinar "Finding the balance - trivago's end-to-end test strategy" in cooperation with BrowserStack from November 10th 2020 where I take you through the rationale behind our current strategy that enables us to release multiple times a day.

Building a test strategy is tricky. There are many moving parts, and every organization is different. Where do you start? What do you prioritize?.

In this webinar presented by BrowserStack (10th November 2020, 8 am PT / 4 pm UTC), I will talk about the rationale behind our current end-to-end test strategy.

Sometimes, you have to look back to solve a problem. In this post, I will explain how I created a plugin based architecture for our end to end test framework using Java's 20 year old Service Provider Interface.

There are different ways to monitor a system to ensure its performance, stability, reliability and resilience. Along with the "usual suspects", we also use end to end tests for this purpose.

Since I have been an amateur magician for the last 34 years, this subject naturally influences my thinking on software. This post will kick off a little series on magic principles in relation to test automation.

Recently, Ministry of Testing asked about our favorite bugs ever on Twitter. So I thought this could be worth a blog post.
