Test Automation overview

The use of special software to control the execution of tests and compare the expected results with the outcome provided by the tests, is called test automation.
With automated tests we can automate repeated actions which are time-consuming when performed manually, and ensure the functionality of our code. Test automation is critical for software development teams which produce software in short cycles in order to ensure that the software can be reliably released.

One of the things I find great about codebender is its large collection of hosted libraries and examples.
As this collection grows, we need to keep track the status of each example. If an example compiles successfully, its set of boards that it can compile against, the error that happened during compile in case of failure. It is a process that can be automated and we managed to do so with the help of Selenium.
