So I have a bit of a problem, since im the only QA at my company and I have many Web based projects going on right now it's very difficult to Automate DURING iterations (just due to manpower).
So what i've been doing it automating test cases (for regression mainly) once the product is stable. Sort of as a (check this during build) when a new feature is added or bugfix is done.
However I'd like to automate more, but automating everything is honestly just not possible due to time/workload. However for a website im trying to come up with some "easy" base cases? Things that are easy to write and test the basics of a website but don't go into crazy detail (IE time that I don't have to write detailed automated test cases).
So far to me I have some ideas for things such as:
- Logging In
- Hitting "Main" links on the webpage and checking the content after
- Logging Out
- Getting to the Main homepage of course
- Maybe doing 1 main feature of the site (such as putting an item in your cart for a store for instance).
Any other ideas?
