An Automated Test is Real Code!
An automated test is real code! We should follow good programming practices even when automating tests. Use Session-Based Test Management to explore you system under test. Model your automation design before you get started. Write test first unit tests to help build your page objects. After your page objects are built, make them portable to use in different test suites such as functional, conformance, and cucumber tests. Organize your continuous integration jobs to tell you pinpointed information about your system under test.
