Does Test Automation always mean breaking the bank? Well, notably, Automation in Testing is expensive, and few others even consider it overpriced? That being said, do you really need any automation at all? If yes, what does it mean for you as a tester and developer in software quality and maintenance?

Yes! 2020, on the other hand, pushed us all into a whole new digitalized nation, where maintaining the software’s quality and speed are sort of like a pressure cooker. (especially for developers and testers) Then came the test automation wildly gushing into the picture with a wide smile, so we all couldn’t resist but discuss and debate it. So, now should you take this automation road because all others are racing on it? Or even better, let’s learn from the experts what exactly it means to the whole tech world and what’s the right way to do it. Yes, let’s get started.
