Manual testers are struggling to keep up with the demand for more frequent product releases, and the need for automated tests is evident. The journey for a manual tester to learn automation can feel overwhelming. Training classes and books can be great for introducing new concepts. But how can learners integrate building new testing skills into their daily work? Busy testers need a strong vision of What’s In It For Me to take the many steps to learn automated testing. Allison and Bhawna share six qualities of strong manual testers that can support them through their learning journeys. In this interactive session, attendees connect theory to practice through an exploration of adult learning principles and the steps Bhawna took to learn automated testing. You will learn the factors that contribute to a successful learning journey and a worksheet to map your next steps. Join Allison and Bhawna to discover how to optimize your learning time!
