It is a challenge for anyone in the middle or senior level testing profession or for that matter any one who is a manager, scrum master, project manager, test manager to get a new job without being a little technical.
The PM / TL / TM / Senior TM all those roles who are into managing testing teams have their hands completely tied up with day to day work and their technical skill levels over a period of time take a beating. Most of the time when we are busy managing the teams as well as coordinating with the client the only thing that matters is how to ensure a smooth delivery.
As time passes pure managerial skills remain with us. Add our testing domain expertise and that is all the senior/middle management folks have to show case.
If there is now a need for shifting or changing the jobs, the new organization wants something more. Only managerial skills along with your manual testing prowess is not in demand any more. This reality hits you hard as soon as you start looking for a change.
Suddenly the need for learning new skills become a necessity.
Where do you start ?
- Appium ?
- DevOps Tools ?
and the truth is all the above requires some basic coding skills. The two most popular languages today are Java and Python. Mostly for testing professionals, Java is more in demand than Python. If you know Java basics you can then learn Selenium, BDD with Cucumber, Appium or for that matter any other technology.
With the growing need for the entire testing community to know a little coding, Java boot camp is the first baby step for them to increase their technical side.
This is where ATA’s Free Java Boot camp initiative is helping the community. It allows the participant to get their hands and feet wet by running their first Java program under guidance from a trained expert. Learn basics of Java for two full days at absolutely no cost.
Kudos to all those who are willing to change themselves!, Hats off to all our community Java Trainers too who are doing this program at no cost.
This we call a truly Indian Spirit. “Seva Bhav”
