NEW WHITEPAPER: Setting up a successful test automation project

We have just released a new whitepaper about how to set up a successful test automation project based on our experience of working with hundreds of companies to successfully deploy test automation

For example, TestPlant has worked with a leading global news publisher to reduce their app update cycle from three weeks to two days, a major UK bank to reduce post-release defects by 65%, and one of the world’s top five retailers to double the number of apps they are delivering without increasing the size of their test team. These stories are not uncommon – test automation really has delivered amazing benefits to lots of companies. Read more

TestPlant released eggPlant v16.1 this month, and I’m writing to talk to you about my favorite of the marquee features: support for Gherkin, the language of the Cucumber BDD framework. (Cue the vegetable puns!) Throughout our internal beta and in our v16.1 webinars, I’ve heard some great questions about Gherkin and our implementation of it that I’d like to share here.
