The dark side of UI test automation - Part 1

My first steps in UI test automation were bumpy and frustrating. Today, almost nine years into automated quality assurance, thinking about my beginning, makes me grin. I consider myself lucky since I had good mentors to provide the knowledge and motivation to help me strive to be a better engineer. In my journey, I read many books and articles about the ‘best practices’ around building test automation, software development, and development in general. However, I have seldom read about the problems with UI test automation. Where you could go wrong, and what should be done or not be done at a team or organization level. This two-part blog series is not a ‘Top 5’ or ‘Top 10’ compilation of things to avoid or to do, but an honest assessment of my experience regarding the real problems with UI test automation.

Creating that ‘GREAT’ slot game – 6 factors to keep in mind

In the 1960s, B.F. Skinner, a leading Harvard psychologist specializing in behaviorism, conducted an interesting experiment. He designed an environment (he put pigeons in a special box) in which the birds got a pellet of food when they pressed a lever. Skinner discovered that the birds would peck at the lever more often when the food delivery system was randomized i.e., the food pellets came out on random presses.
