Autonomous testing. Are we there yet?
Abstract: Current testing approaches are slowing down development and are unsustainable in the long term. We have long believed that test automation was the solution, but this belief was wrong. Nowadays we use test automation tools almost everywhere, but this testing approach is far too slow and requires strong technical skills that are hard to find and develop. Even if we do succeed in automating our tests, we are often faced with exhausting maintenance. Is there a solution? Could it be autonomous testing? Autonomous testing is the next phase in the evolution of testing approaches. We begin with several experiments to build an autonomous bot. In this talk, I will show you our first results from implementing autonomous visual regression testing using free and open-source tools.
