The Parallel Between Testing Concepts and Heavy Metal Music

Cognizant Softvision’s Principal Automation Architect discusses the impact of music on testing and automation

In testing and automation development, difficult challenges often arise, such as unrealistic expectations, resistance to change, and an insistence that automation has to come from test cases. To deal with these challenges, many find that music helps them find motivation, inspiration and solace. 

On April 13, Cognizant Softvision Principal Automation Architect and self-proclaimed metalhead and metal enthusiast, Paul Grizzaffi will share some impactful lyrics and song titles that frame memorable messages about testing and automation. Some themes that will be covered include:

  • Making our own expectations
  • Automation is programming, not magic
  • Important business aspects related to automation and testing that cannot be ignored
