Everything I Learned about Automation, I Learned from Saturday Morning Cartoons

Add to calendar

Do you remember sitting in front of the television as a kid enjoying your favorite Saturday morning cartoons? Chris Loder shows you how the lessons we learned from those cartoons apply to our everyday work in test automation. Wait until you hear what we’ve learned from the likes of Scooby Doo®, Wile E. Coyote®, and many other favorites! Like Bugs Bunny®, maybe we should “have taken that left turn at Albuquerque” and possibly done things a little differently. Discover how the animators in Spiderman® didn’t redraw every background but reused the animation cells, similar to our reusing pieces of test code. And see how Scooby Doo taught us that with the right team, we can solve anything! Chris talks about the automation that he is building at InGenius and how all those hours in front of the TV are helping make it successful. Come for the ‘toons, leave with the lessons!
