Seretta Gamba

Seretta Gamba has 40 years’ experience in development and fifteen in test automation. After going through all the usual developer roles, in 2001 she was put in charge of test automation for her company. She developed a framework that enabled her company to quickly get excellent results. Having talked about the framework in a couple of conferences she met Dorothy Graham and was invited to write a chapter in the book, Experiences of Test Automation. With Dorothy Graham she has been developing the Test Automation Patterns Wiki and is now writing a story book about the patterns.
Driving Lessons for Test Automators!

Just as to be able to drive a car you need more than to know that it has a steering wheel, brakes and a clutch, so with test automation getting a tool and learning to code will not make you a (good) test automator.

In fact, many of the problems in test automation have long been solved by experienced practitioners and their solutions have been collected by Dorothy Graham and Seretta Gamba in the Test Automation Patterns. In this tutorial Seretta not only introduces you to the Test Automation Patterns Wiki, but also explains how to use it and lets you try it out with intuitive exercises. In addition, she explains in detail some of the most important patterns (like ABSTRACTION LEVELS, DESIGN FOR REUSE, DOMAIN-DRIVEN TESTING, INDEPENDENT TEST CASES, MANAGEMENT SUPPORT and more).

Be sure to bring your laptop, tablet etc. since the exercises will allow you to work directly with the wiki
