Automation teams are people who are creating tools that allow us to communicate with others on our journey. As with anyone making a living for themselves and all others, having your own automation team takes a lot of work.
The best way for a automation team to work is to have a few people who know the technical aspects of their tools, and communicate with those who do the actual programming. This way, they can also talk to each other, and everyone is in the loop. Our team is made up of a director, several different programmers, a data scientist, and a few testers.
