Test Recommender Systems: Soumya Mukherjee [Testμ 2022]

In this session of the Testμ Conference, Soumya Mukherjee, Engineer Manager at Apple, teamed up with Shantanu Wali – Product Manager at LambdaTest, to explain why a test recommendation system today is the need of the hour.

As our regression pack grows, there has always been a case for shortening the testing cycle. To test the software application’s code effectively, it’s crucial to identify the tests that only affect the system due to specific build changes. However, achieving this task manually can be cumbersome since it requires knowing which tests are affected by the code changes.

This is where a test recommender system comes into play. It can quickly pinpoint which tests are affected by the code commit and then select them for targeted regression.
