I have some experience as a manual tester and at my current work our regression testing takes about 2 days.
I am planning to start automating some of the test cases. I am looking at some of the free open-source tools available or cheap tools, I tried Sikuli but it only works for certain cases and most of the time it fails during object recognition.
I have been suggested AutoIt and I am going to check that out too. I have some knowledge of Python so are there any tools which I can use for test automation of desktop application where I can use Python as a scripting language?
Any other tool recommendation (preferably open source)?
