Flaky tests in software automation are like a rollercoaster ride you cannot know what is next because they give inconsistent results even with the same inputs.
Imagine testing a search function. One day, it shows accurate results perfectly, but the next day, it inexplicably fails to find anything, even though nothing changed.
🎢 These unpredictable tests can confuse developers and waste time. You understand the frustration.
Flakiness often comes from timing issues or external factors. To fix them, you put on your detective hat, analyzing why the ride behaves differently. Your expertise guides you to tweak the test settings, ensuring a smoother ride for developers, consistent results, and reliable software. 🕵️♂️🚀
