Hello from Portsmouth, England

Hey all, my name is Steven. I am a realtively new tester, starting my first junior role in Feburary, with no prior experience in testing or software.

I am hoping to get to know some of you in this community and learn more about testing practices and habits.I have currently only done balck-box and exploratory testing, But am I teaching my self robot-frmaework for automation testing.


Hey Steven!!! Welcome!! :smiley:

You should come over to the MOT slack if you’re not in it, lots of opportunities to meet and talk to other testers! There’s even a virtual-coffee channel that pairs people up every week and you can chat to testers from all over the World. Super cool. Either way, welcome to the community new testing friend!

Welcome Steven :wave: between here and the MoT Slack as Bruce mentions, you’ll get a lot of support :slight_smile:

There are a couple of posts on here about Robot Framework but if you have a question you’d like to ask and you don’t see it already, please do ask.

Congrats on posting here, Steven. And how very cool you’re on a new testing adventure!

Is this article on your radar? Perhaps it’ll be helpful – it’s epic and by @heather_reid (above this here post):

Hi Steven,

How are you. First of all, congratulations for getting into IT. I am also trying to get into Automation testing. Hopefully very soon, I will be there. You can ask questions on slack as others mentioned and get answers. Congrats once again.
