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;
  • Curious;
  • 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.
  • Patience.

 

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.

Happy testing!
