Description:
Let's knock down some dominoes!
In this workshop you'll be challenged to set up dominoes in a way that solves puzzles. In doing so, you'll learn the basic principles of good test automation: how verification steps affect what we learn from tests; how dependencies affect our testing outcomes; how interactions with third-party systems work with and against our goals; and how time limits us in what we can know about our systems under test.
Where ever you are in your test automation journey there is more to learn. Join us to have fun and gain insights into automated test design and execution!
