Greetings fellow imagineers! I want to kick off this blog by giving a brief overview of my upcoming series on “How to Automate Web Service Testing with HP Service Test.” This is how it all started: It’s 6:00 a.m., and I only have a couple of hours left before I’m scheduled to give a presentation testing web services. At this point, to be honest, I don’t have a clear plan as to what I’m going to cover. After bouncing some ideas around in my head, I finally decide to download a mind mapping app for my iTouch called iThoughts. ( I had been reading about mind mapping for some time prior, and had even bought some supplies, but had never gotten around to really doing it.) Thinking like an automation engineer, I was hoping this tool could help to automate most of the work. Surprisingly, after just one hour of using the app, I had a full outline of what I was going to cover. The presentation I gave went so well that I decided to create an entire web series on it.
This is the mind map of some topics I hope to cover:
