Just as to be able to drive a car you need more than to know that it has a steering wheel, brakes and a clutch, so with test automation getting a tool and learning to code will not make you a test automator.
Many of the problems in test automation have long been solved by experienced practitioners and their solutions have been collected by Dorothy Graham and Seretta Gamba in the Test Automation Patterns. In this tutorial you will be introduced to the Test Automation Patterns Wiki and learn how to use it with intuitive exercises. In addition, Seretta explains in detail some of the most important patterns (like ABSTRACTION LEVELS, DESIGN FOR REUSE, DOMAIN-DRIVEN TESTING, INDEPENDENT TEST CASES and more).
IMPORTANT: Bring your laptop, tablet etc. since the exercises will be directly on the wiki
