I am genuinely enjoying myself with the #30daysoftesting challenge. Today is day 6 and today’s task is:
Share what skills a team needs to succeed with automation in testing
Let’s keep this post short. In random order I think the following team skills are important to succeed with automation in testing:
- Testing skills;
- Eager to learn;
- Tool knowledge or willing to learn it;
- Programming language knowledge or willing to learn it;
- Domain knowledge;
- Collaborative skills;
- Communication skills to get information from developers, operations, management etc.
I think these skills should take you a long way when it comes to succeeding with automation. I am very curious what others came up with and I will be checking ministryoftesting and twitter for the answers now.
