  1. Salemetsiz Be,

    Gasping at your brilliance! Thanks a tonne for sharing all that content. Can’t stop reading. Honestly!

    I think choosing one over the other as a general response is not useful.
    Automating is really time consuming when starting and until it creates momentum Manual testing adds more value to a team. Also when automating we are testing for expected things, intuition and flexibility of manual ad-hoc testing can’t be programmed.But as your test cases start to pile up, and regressions become harder to do, there automation is king.
    Very useful post !everyone should learn and use it during their learning path.

    Thank you,
