Testing drives Agile analytics. It’s so important that I taught a full-day class on this topic for several years, and still frequently present on this topic. Since every small increment of code needs to be potentially shippable, it must be tested. With testing on such a frequent basis, it becomes imperative to automate testing.
In this video, I answer the following questions:
- Why is test automation important for Agile data teams?
- Why aren’t all data teams aren’t automating their tests today?
- What is the path to test automation?
- What does simple DW test automation look like?
