S3E4 - Erika Chestnut - The role of test automation in Calendly's test strategy
Play • 31 min
In this episode I had a conversation with Erika Chestnut, Head of QA at Calendly. She started her career as a developer, but after complaining about quality a few times too many, she found herself learning more about software testing. Today she is a Quality Coach, mentor, consultant, and a keynote speaker.

Listen to the episode to learn about how test automation plays a role in Calendly’s test strategy, and as with every guest, her advice for testers on good habits, recommended reads, and more.

Episode Highlights:
- How Erika first learned about testing and why she is passionate about it
- Building a solid foundation for automation
- Pros and cons of having the developers at Calendly drive test automation
- How they align the developer’s test automation efforts with non-automated testing driven by the testers in order to cover what’s important at the different layers and to avoid duplicate tests
- Involving DevOps and Customer Experience to perform stakeholder testing
