This is to let you know of a Meetup being organized in course of the "Agile (Test) Automation" Meetup group:
Driving lessons for Test Automators
Just as to be able to drive a car you need more than to know that it has a steering wheel, brakes and a clutch, so with test automation getting a tool and learning to code will not make you a (good) test automator.
In fact, many of the problems in test automation have long been solved by experienced practitioners and their solutions have been collected by Dorothy Graham and Seretta Gamba in the Test Automation Patterns. In this tutorial Seretta not only introduces you to the Test Automation Patterns Wiki, but also explains how to use it and lets you try it out with intuitive exercises. In addition, she explains in detail some of the most important patterns (like ABSTRACTION LEVELS, DESIGN FOR REUSE, DOMAIN-DRIVEN TESTING, INDEPENDENT TEST CASES, MANAGEMENT SUPPORT and more).
