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.
During the event you will learn how to start your adventure in automation software testing. We will speak about must have skills and up to date trends in automation software testing. You will have a chance to look at the trends in automation and get know about niche on the market – performance and security.
During workshops you will get information how to use freeware tools and scripts that can be setup in your projects.
During the workshop you will learn how to work in a group in order to deliver automatic tests in simulation of 2 sprints. As participants, you will have the opportunity to write tests from scratch based on business requirements in a working framework using technologies like Allure, Selenide, Gradle, Java and TestNG.

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.
