Coding Jag - Issue 25

Welcome to the 25th edition of Coding Jag brought to you by LambdaTest!🤗

Mike Cohn proposed the ' Test Automation Pyramid' in his book "Succeeding With Agile" and described how teams were automating at the wrong levels. He introduced us to a practical test automation strategy by dividing it into three different levels- UI, Service & Unit.

Let's dig into those questions and more in this edition.
