The status quo
Silent But Deadly
Flaky tests start from humble beginnings and live under the radar - until they can’t be ignored. Don’t wait until they truly impact productivity and stability
What happens when you see flaky tests? You re-run them. And again. And again. Until they’re simply turned off in continuous integration or the development process.
Flaky tests erode test confidence, and by extension confidence in tests an product stability. Don’t let this spread to customers.
