January is in full swing. I am slowly preparing to move back to Poland.
The question of the week:
Old one returning: How much value bring an automated end to end test?
Especially in the test suite for one of the subsystems.
What if it is mostly failing due to instabilities of another system even before actual system under test can be interacted with.
My current answer is:
Such automation is useful as the tool for help with manual testing. It is part of automated suite used as part of Continuous Development.
