My goal is to write on a number of related topics on Software Test Automation. Some might end up aligning and become combined into a single ‘book’ others may take on lives of their own. Over the last 3 days I’ve:
written the (hopefully) final draft of a 3,000 word article on using test automation to find some types of accessibility and usability issues. This has its own trajectory and is expected to be published on ACM Queue in the next month or so (depending on the remaining edits and their publishing cycle).
worked on a fledging topic of Lean Test Automation (currently 553 words)
worked on Improve automation maintainability and cleanup of legacy tests (currently 2552 words)
All of these were started in October, but I’m averaging between 500 and 1000 words / day. Let’s see if I can keep this up.
I’m using a combination of Google Docs and Word - drafts tend to be online, or when I expect to share the material early, more mature material tends to move to Word.
FYI: I’ve published a book on Smartphone test automation (much of the content is also online at http://tr.im/mobtest) and edited a book on mobile development, available online at http://www.j2mepolish.org/cms/fileadmin/Developers_Guide_6th_EURO_web.pdf
