Writing Maintainable Automated Acceptance Tests: Dale Emery

Test automation is software development. As with other software development efforts, most of the cost of test automation occurs during maintenance after the tests are first written. Automated tests can become brittle, so that a small change in a requirement or in the software renders scores of tests obsolete in the blink of an eye. How can we reduce the high cost of inevitable change? Dale Emery demonstrates key principles for writing adaptable automated tests: remove duplication, focus on the essence of the test, and name every important test idea.
