To combat the rapid shift in how we create and release software without compromising quality and velocity, The New York Times test strategy went through a series of transformation from building the right team structure to clarifying roles and responsibilities on who owns the automated tests. The result is the birth of Test Automation Team with a vision to develop Test Frameworks and Test Infrastructure that a maximum number of Development teams can apply/adapt to develop and execute their automated tests.
After a year implementing this model, we are moving towards a culture where quality is truly being considered as everyone’s responsibility and it begins with the product requirements.

In this talk we will go over:
  • Birth of Central Test Automation Team
  • Use cases demonstrating how test automation team plays an important role in ensuring high-quality product without compromising release velocity
  • Behind the scene process of developing and maintaining test frameworks and infrastructure that caters to developers
Session takeaways

  • Lessons learned from challenges we faced to adopt a culture of quality through test automation
  •  Best practices in maximizing test automation adoption in your development teams
  • A practical guide on measuring test maturity of a product
