Seretta Gamba has over 30 years’ experience in software development. As test manager at Steria Mummert ISS GmbH she was charged in 2001 with the improvement of the test automation process.
After studying the current strategies, she developed a kind of keyword-driven testing and a framework to support it. In 2009 the framework was extended to support also manual testing.
Seretta referred about it at EuroSTAR and got the attention of Dorothy Graham that subsequently invited her to contribute with a chapter in her new book (Experiences of Test Automation). On reading her bonus book Seretta noticed recurring patterns in the solution of automation problems. After gaining Dorothy’s support, she is currently intent on cataloguing Test Automation Patterns.
