  1. Hi rajkumar
    How can we do automation in agile project?And how can we do automation when requirements are changing?Can please share your views on above questions. Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Jawahar,
      Requirement changes are common in agile. Pls refer question 5 in the above list. It is advisable to start test automation only once the product is stable. With technically sound QA’s, you could start automating in parallel to development. We do develop test scripts by keeping need of regression testing in mind. Keep the test scripts small to avoid unnecessary maintenance. As a tester, you have to discuss with your Product Owner and Devs on what tests you need to automate. Also, you need to explain them the benefits of an automating particular script. Concentrate on the business critical functionalities, test cases which need to run multiple times (for regression testing)

      Thumb rule, If a test is performed only once, it shouldn’t be automated.

    Thank you for the time and efforts you put in to educate others. We sincerely appreciate your commitment to do all these.

    One quick question i have is that in Agile there is something called story points, estimation and allocation of points to user stories. Can you please briefly explain how that works?

    Once again thanks a lot!
