Just a quick but link heavy note today.

Albert Gareev and I have been collaborating on some articles related to test automation. Albert is really good at working with and designing frameworks. I’m really good at asking lots of possibly stupid questions. Put us together, and we’ve developed a cool way to determine if your test automation efforts are on track.

This is all an elaborate ruse to get you to go to Software Test Professional’s site and read our latest article “Follow the Crumbs to Evaluate Automation“. If that isn’t enough for you, then download the entire March 2012 issue of ST&QA Magazine.

If that isn’t enough for you, and if the CRUMBS story interests you, you might find the story that we did in the January 2012 issue of ST&QA interesting. Look for the article “Coming to TERMS With Test Automation“. It’s the prequel to our current article.

Finally, if you want to hear about some of my own challenges and foibles dealing with test automation, I got to spend a good chunk of TWiST #86 talking about it.

As always, you do need to register with the site to get to these links, but registration costs you nothing, and we certainly hope the content will make it worth your while to do so. As always, if you have any questions or comments, good or bad, I’d love to hear them :).
