In this ever-changing world of technology, it’s hard to keep up with everything that is happening in the software testing ecosystem, let alone do a deep evaluation of all the possibilities available to improve your automated tests or to get started. Every other month you’ll stumble upon a new framework or tool that promises to solve all your test automation needs, providing effortless, fast and reliable test automation. But what makes a framework or tool a good one? What is a test automation framework? Do they drive automation success alone, rendering your test automation skills irrelevant? Just like we’ll always need good functional test engineers, we’ll also always need good test automation engineers who have the ability to understand the environment they are working in, who can create a solid test automation strategy and tackle all the obstacles along the way.
