Note: Back by popular demand, this is a repost of a previous blog by Antony Edwards.

SciFi worlds from the 1980s always included super powerful, intelligent computers that you could talk to. By the late 90s, the vision had moved on to worlds where everything is a computer and connected; maybe even us. And it’s this ubiquitous computing that I think is the most exciting and interesting part of technology: new device categories.

NEW WHITEPAPER: Setting up a successful test automation project

We have just released a new whitepaper about how to set up a successful test automation project based on our experience of working with hundreds of companies to successfully deploy test automation

Test automation can deliver huge benefits in terms of time-to-market, quality, productivity, and auditability to almost any team creating or deploying software. For example, TestPlant has worked with a leading global news publisher to reduce their app update cycle from three weeks to two days, a major UK bank to reduce post-release defects by 65%, and one of the world’s top five retailers to double the number of apps they are delivering without increasing the size of their test team. These stories are not uncommon – test automation really has delivered amazing benefits to lots of companies.

I recently presented at the Northern Lights conference in Manchester. This conference was hosted by the BCS (British Computing Society), and my talk was “Tools. Techniques. Trouble? Why test automation is getting more difficult, and what can be done about it.” You may have seen my blog post from ahead of the show, but if you haven’t yet, you can find it here.

I focussed on automating user interactions with the System under Test (SUT) and automating the creation of test scripts but not the automation of the testing process itself. I addressed both functional and load testing.

For those who weren’t there, here are the key points that I covered in my presentation:
