MetaAutomation: Quality Automation for Software that Matters

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Conventional test automation comes with opportunity costs: the speed, scalability and robustness of automated verifications, the clarity, correctness and speed of team communication around quality details measured, and efficiency and clarity for the manual testing role, could all be much better. The randomizing maintenance costs and repro-and-debug sessions related to conventional test automation can be reduced or eliminated. MetaAutomation is a pattern language of six patterns to guide and enable teams to achieve this. I ask participants to consider six paradigm shifts:

  1. Automated verifications (checks) are very different from the manual test role

  2. Focusing checks on their unique, important capabilities accelerates quality automation and vastly increases business value

  3. Checks are bounded in time, and this enables structured artifacts rather than linear logs

  4. Hierarchical check steps give transparency, robustness, and flexibility in communication

  5. The Internet of Things is distributed, so measure quality that way too rather than one-tier-at-a-time

  6. Detailed and Structured quality data, coupled with the other practices of MetaAutomation, can tear down silos and bring the transparency and business values out of just the QA team to span all teams on the product and across the entire SDLC
