Test infrastructure as code

8 types of infrastructure on construction projects - LetsBuild

‘Test infrastructure as code’ should really be part of your Test Strategy or testing game plan for the lack of one.

From experience working with docker and kubernetes, the top benefits for have been:

– easily manage the setup of Ci jobs,

– changes can be tracked and become the single source of truth,

– easily deploy test automation tooling such as selenium and pact infrastructure,

– manage Cloud costs effectively,

– setup and tear down Jenkins nodes with ease,

– easily chain jobs and share volumes if needed,

– deploying across regions, teams and environments are a breeze,

– setting up end to end development and test tooling for manual testing becomes quicker.

A Test Automation WorkFlow

To maximise your efficiencies as a test automation engineer, define a solid approach and plan out your test development workflow.

Below, I’ve developed a system for you to follow in building your test automation cases

I invite you to follow the same path or adapt it to meet your teams requirements.

Its good practice to follow a system and with repeatable goals defined. This will make you a stronger but also adaptable tester. Good luck!
