This is related to a question that came up in the Test Automation AMA with Richard Bradshaw (at 3 minutes 12 seconds). It’s something I see asked a LOT. Questions vary in wording but are along the lines of:
“What is the best language to use for test automation?”
“How do you choose a programming language for software testing automation?”
“I want to get started with automation in my testing activities but I don’t know what language to start with, what would you suggest?”
What advice would you give to someone who asked you this type of question?
