From February 6 to February 10, 2023, TestGuild’s annual live online event happens for the 7th time, and Forte Group’s Lee Barnes joins the list of speakers. The conference is made by testers for testers and is dedicated to helping quality assurance professionals achieve more reliable and less flaky automation. The panel features 38+ live sessions hosted by the world’s top experts, where they share key test automation insights that help build better software. Attendees will discover the latest tools, best practices, real-world tips, actionable techniques, and proven strategies.  

In his exclusive “Successful Test Automation Myths and Risks” session, Lee will once again present his view on why he sees the craft of software testing being swallowed up by test automation. His suggested practices go beyond just the execution of scripted tests and teach how to apply automation principles more generally to testing activities. In addition to techniques for successful test automation, attendees will learn the one critical fact that often gets overlooked — that test automation is NOT testing, and how many organizations fall into the trap of the false sense of security equating a comprehensive automated test suite with an effective software testing function.
