Automation Yoga: Stretching your ROI with Jupyter Notebooks

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.

Session Takeaways:

  • What are Jupyter Notebooks.
  • How Jupyter Notebooks can blend automation and exploratory testing.
  • How manual testers can leverage automation in their day to day tasks.
