Automation is judged by its return on investment, to ensure a good return a great deal of effort is put forth choosing the just the right tests to automate.
This creates a niche market, to maximize ROI you need to stretch the total addressable market (TAM) your automation can serve.
In this talk I will discuss and demonstrate how integrating Jupyter Notebooks with test automation can increase the number of people using automation on teams by:
Cede control to human testers for challenging controls or integrations. Semi automated tests can be created allow human interaction with the system under test at any point in a test case.
Integrate with Exploration. Testers can mix and match automation with manual steps, using different inputs and datasets then documenting their findings in markdown including links and screenshots.
