Right now, I’m trying to get better at the following:
- API testing
- QA practices
I’m on new project, and there was no test process in place, before I came on board. It was a bit intimidating at first, but now after a few months I’m enjoying it.
The product is a REST API with hardly any frontend, so, on the technical side I’m constantly trying to get better at API testing.
As for the QA practices, I’m doing a lot of reading and talking to other testers as I’m slowly working on improving the testing process, standardizing the reporting, etc.
And lastly, regarding the leadership part, I’m (secretly) hoping, that as the project grows we will be getting new testers, and I think in that case I would become their team lead. This is something I have not done before, but I think I might have knack for it, as I get along with people really well and the junior people I have mentored so far all told me that they like my way of explaining things and making them feel ashamed when they don’t know something,
