What did I learn about automated testing?
Codeby has produced an automated testing platform that has run more than 1 million tests on sites like Aramis, Shoulder, Popup Store and Colombo in the last 4 months. There were several lessons learned and I will give you some of them!
I never imagined that automated testing would be so important to an operation. They are bots running in the digital business every 30 minutes, so you can collect everything that is kind of error, be it usability, code, platform, etc. You will discover many errors and correct them.
You will probably get bored at first with the amount of warnings your digital business has, and that's normal. Most companies do not use tests to find out if their users face problems and this is only discovered by the SAC after their user faces many problems.
One thing I learned from Testby is that there is a big difference between automated and non-automated testing. Non-automated tests are tests that work just to know if when you make any changes to the software, it keeps working. Automated testing always works, collecting data after the change and throughout the process, detecting many more errors.
All customers who have used Testby have reached a maturity level where they no longer have to use the platform, which is awesome! We finally managed to get their digital business to a surreal level without error.
Talking about Testby, we found it to be a 3-4 month service that optimizes your new digital business or even a product that has never been tested with experts!
