Test automation is one of the most interesting career paths in IT right now – on a daily basis you can both program and cooperate with the business side on designing the systems. And we’re happy to announce that together with UBS we’re running an “Automation Testing Experience powered by UBS” program, which will take place on October 16-17 in Krakow.
What a day looks like in an automated tester’s life? First of all, she writes programs that check the compliance of software created by programmers with the specification. But not only – thanks to the increasing role of Agile methodology in modern businesses, testers are involved in the software development process from the very beginning, often acting as connectors between business and technology sides.
We’ve planned for you two paths during the program: for manual testers who’d like to move to automated tests and introduction to automated testing for students who’d like to join IT industry.
Day 1: workshop
- Automatic testing for manual testers
- Introduction to automatic testing for students and those who know at least 1 programming language
Day 2: keynote speech and meetings
A NEW EVENT TYPE
This time it will not be a typical workshop. We prepared a program dedicated to people who would like to start working in automatic testing, and at the same time will take part in the recruitment process.
Why do we think it’s a good idea?
One thing that no one likes to talk when it comes to the IT job market, is the very small number of junior positions. There is a shortage of experienced programmers, while at the same time only a few opportunities to gain experience for beginners. As Carrots, we are often asked how to find the first job. We hope that thanks to such events we will be able to help you open the door to the technology industry.
