5.0 out of 5 stars Whether you are new or experienced to test automation, get this book!
By Mike Clark on January 28, 2018
On a testing Slack channel, Greg Paskal answered a question I had as well as providing some great advice on getting started with test automation. It was valuable information and advice, so I wanted to know more about Mr. Paskal. I came across a book he wrote titled, “Test Automation in the Real World: Practical Lessons for Automated Testing” and ordered it ASAP. I read the book this past week, and it did not disappoint. The book is Paskal’s 30 plus years of experience with software development and test engineering, and what has worked for him, as well as some of the mistakes he’s seen along the way with early and inexperienced adopters of test automation. Effective approaches to planning and steps to preventing mistakes that can possibly result in brittle tests and test frameworks, are part of what this book covers. If you are new or experienced, I would highly recommend this book. Mr. Paskal is very reputable in the testing community, no to mention he has the experience to back it up.
