From Rookie Tester to Automation Ace

Performing repeated manual regression can take its toll. Even if you have great knowledge of the product and are putting it to good use, is it the best use of your knowledge and skill set? There's a better way, and its name is automation. Chloe Chen will take you on the adventure of what she did to make the transition from rookie tester to automation ace. She'll share lessons learned from her early failures, like using the wrong tool, automating the wrong software, and locking up the office phone system while automating answering calls. From targeted skill-building to knowledge adoption to choosing the right mentor, Chloe will detail all the challenges along her test automation journey. You'll leave with new shortcuts, tools to help you get ahead, and a better understanding of what you need to make your own jump into automation.
