Share your biggest frustration with automation in testing!

Ok, so I do not have an immediate answer to this question. I can actually say I have no real big frustrations, but for the sake of the challenge I will try.

Let’s start with a list of possible top frustrations around automation in testing:

  • ‘Automation in testing’ still has that buzzword aura around it
  • The endless discussion test automation vs automation in testing vs automated checking etc.
    • I personally like ‘automation in testing’ but am not opposed to ‘test automation’
  • Having to convince new people (management/teammembers) every time of the added value of automation in testing.

Out of those I have to go with the first option: the buzzword aura around the term.

Happy frustrationless testing!
