Many agile teams master TDD, but still struggle with automating tests above the unit level. They may want to embrace acceptance test-driven development (ATDD, also known as Specification by Example), but can't get it done.
Lisa Crispin will explain one simple secret to making test automation in agile projects work, sharing stories from her teams. Participants will be asked to share their own success stories and learning experiences. Everyone will leave with ideas for their own teams to try.
1) Who's supposed to automate these tests?
2) How do you avoid spending all your time maintaining them once they're written, especially GUI-level tests?
