Projects to gain hands-on automation experience

If you’re trying to get hands-on experience with a project for automation and you’re not in a role that facilitates that, it can be pretty difficult or confusing to find projects to practice on.

The restful booker app springs to mind for me as an excellent place to start!

I was wondering if anyone else had other project suggestions for getting hands-on automation experience?


@angiejones did a great article on building a Test Automation portfolio that provides 10 great options that might inspire anyone who has missed it.


A lot of different kind of projects to work on. Examples:

  • REST api
  • Microservices
  • JDBC
  • GraphQL

Easy to setup and nice to test! :wink:
