Reducing Abstraction in Test Automation

James Bent

January 31, 2023

There has been pushback against the increased level of abstraction in test automation. By restricting how much you can look behind the curtain, testing can actually get more frustrating. That’s why we're actually in favor of reduced abstraction in test automation, despite the fact that we are a codeless test automation tool!

Virtuoso’s ‘scripted, codeless test automation’ brings the best of both worlds– you can leverage Natural Language Programming (NLP) to author test steps in plain English, while always having the option to use the Advanced mode and make enhanced customizations, just how you like it– with the help of a little coding. 

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to unlock speed & flexibility with reduced abstraction in test automation
  • How to take charge of your testing approach based on the level of abstraction that works for you
  • How to balance the best of both worlds– going ‘codeless’ and retaining reduced abstraction


James Bent is our Head of Sales Engineering at Virtuoso, with a vast and detailed knowledge of automation. He keeps things simple even when talking about the most technical of topics or dealing with dynamic applications. When not empowering people to test at speed and scale in the cloud he can be found on the courts of his local tennis club.
