I am a brand new software tester from Belgium. I’ve rolled into this job completely unexpected, having no IT experience whatsoever, after being selected for a training + job as tester at a company that employs people with an Autism Spectrum Disorder in a variety of IT related jobs.
Yesterday was the last day of our training, and it was “Selenium day”. We’ve been warned up front that it might not be everybody’s cup of tea. They told us that, if we understood it enough, we could do an extra automation training. We used Selenium with java, I had no clue even what I was doing, but I loved it nevertheless. I really want to learn programming. I never thought I’d get selected for the extra training but…
I got selected! It starts next monday!
I am extremely happy. I do not feel ready at all for ANY of this, but I’m sure that I’ll make it to be a good (automation) tester one day!
I plan to be an active member here, for I am sure that all the tips on here will help me get better and better. As for now I still haven’t done any project at all, but I cannot wait to get my first!
Thanks for reading, and have a nice weekend!
