I am new to testing and my mentor at the company is asking me to get my base strong with regards to manual testing. I know java and made few demo projects with selenium - browser automation and rest assured - API testing . They are expecting me to have better test cases coverage and base needs to be strong . So , anybody knows few blogs/resources from which I can get my foundation strong?
I worked as a manual tester for 2 years and took a break because I had kids. Now when I apply for jobs, I couldn't get a call back as there is a gap in my career. It’s been 3 years since I worked and I live in UK.
I have taken selenium automation testing course online.And what are the recent technologies/tools that I have to learn so I can improve.
I am on a team of two working on standardizing testing for the company. The culture here is very resistant to change, as I am sure many colleagues on here have experienced themselves. I want to continue pushing this elephant up the stairs, but I am afraid some of these templates (IEEE 829 standard templates) are too dense for most of them. My mentality right now is to take this in strides. I want to avoid creating a 12 part test plan that people need to follow if they are just going to get defensive and say they do not have the time to even test, or test this way. Of course we have plans to educate as much as we can, but this is going to take years. What are your suggestions, then, with creating templates? Right now I have identified three that need to be used across all teams (Test Strategy, Test Plan, and Test Summary). We have plans on creating a best practice document/resource for teams to educate them on the industry standards.
As a QA Manager, I've been requested to train my wider team that includes Product owners, business analysts to train them in software testing that's relevent so they can lend a hand as my team has been significantly reduced due to losses.
Any strategy you could suggest or guidelines to how to go about it will be helpful please?
