Insanely Easy Framework Design with Acceptance Test Driven Automation

I created Acceptance Test Driven Automation (ATDA) as a test automation activity to help an individual develop a production quality, test automation framework, in under 45 min. ATDA iterates through 3 phases of development to produce a robust automation framework in lightning time.

I will begin the presentation by showing what ATDA is and how it can help to overcome the challenges of framework development. ATDA uses Red, Green, Refactor applied to test automation code extremely maintainable test frameworks. Furthermore, ATDA is simple to apply and has only a few rules.

After a theoretical overview, we will jump on the keyboard and I will code live as I create an automation framework using this methodology. As the presentation progresses, I will apply each step of ATDA through code and will explain it to the audience.

The audience will sit and watch live as we create a production-ready framework in under 45 minutes.

At the end of the presentation, the individual will have a complete paradigm shift into how easy it can be to create an automation framework using ATDA. Furthermore, the audience will understand how to continue to maintain their test automation from this point forward. Ultimately, changing their test automation quality forever, which is the goal of this technique. I believe ATDA will be a fundamental change in how we do test automation in the industry.

Key Takeaways

  • Creating a production-ready test automation framework can be intuitive and painless
  • Acceptance Test Driven Automation is the easiest automation methodology to create robust automation code
  • Applied ATDA can drastically improve the longevity of your test automation code
