Gaining Domain Knowledge Thru Automated Scripts

Software testers should consider writing automated scripts for any app they often test, not only because it will help them in the eventual regression testing or because  its an awesome skill to add to their repertoire and to showcase, but also because it helps them better understand the flow of the software they check everyday, its moving parts and quirks. And the more domain knowledge testers gain through automation ultimately aids them in better comprehension of probable app changes, as well as improves their investigation skills if the need arises.

  1. Agreed and Domain Knowledge is more important than programming knowledge. Testers are User’s agent and any attempt to learn who the users are and what they want to accomplish with the software helps.

    Thanks for the emphasis.
