Quotes & Insights from this Test Talk

  • With LeanFT you can easily use the same test script against Chrome, Firefox and IE browsers
  • What’s really cool is that LeanFT actually fits into the developer’s ecosystem, so you can use the same tools that your developers use to create automation scripts. With more and more companies making the shift left of focusing on quality from day on one of a project to make sure that defects are found as soon as possible using the same tools as your develops will hopefully start collaboration between your teams and get everyone talking about quality sooner rather than later.
  • In all my years of testing I don’t think I’ve ever have been able to convince a developer to install and use VBScript in QTP or UFT
  • Selenium is a fine tool for browser based automation but using LeanFT gives you the added benefit of having access to HP’s Windows-based technologies that Selenium does not provide. This is important because if you work for a large enterprise like I do many test I create require non-browser based application for some of our end-to-end workflows
  • Out of the box LeanFT integrated with jUnit, MsTest and Nunit
  • Much, much more! Listen now.
