Flaky tests: The method.


45 minutes


Flaky, or unstable tests are an eternal headache for automation engineers.
In every build, in every test run some of the tests occasionally fail without a code change. It eats your time and soul. In my previous talks, I showed a lot of real-life examples with funny videos.

This time I will show new examples and focus on The Method – how to investigate and find the root cause of phantom test failures. We have A New Hope to overcome flaky tests.
