Test planning process.
Work that increases our efficiency and productivity.
Running test faster.
Use API in all E2E tests. Achieve optimal test layering with API suite more than %60 of total tests.
Optimize test coverage across the layers of the test pyramid, to remove redundant tests and achieve higher coverage with greater efficiency.
Come up with standardized test data that can be seeded in all environments for productivity.
Work that will allow us to debug tests more easily. Includes better reporting and more informative artifacts.
Work that will help us triage issues and merge requests more efficiently.
Work involving metrics that will allow us to make good data-driven decisions and report them to stakeholders early.
Work that helps in validating the release process.
