Shift left testing is the new mantra if an organization is serious about faster time to market, lower cost of testing, and earlier defect identification in the SDLC. This early defect detection can help in faster defect fix time and requirement adjustments much earlier in project. During this workshop, Ramapriya Raju and Rohit Khare will explain how to shift your test automation left using real-world approaches. You will learn how to start automation early by using wire frames before code is written, performing API verification before the UI is available, using module base testing, and automating with behavior driven methods to focus on high-risk requirements. Ramapriya and Rohit will also discuss how the Shift Left approach mandates test automation engineers involvement with all other actors in Agile Scrum teams for information gathering, rapid feedback, and building incremental automated test suites. Using Shift Left automation you will be able to shift from defect detection to defect prevention at a faster scale and pace.
