I’m sure we are all busy. It seems to be a hallmark of our culture. I’ve certainly been busy over the last couple of months! In addition to my regular activities with work, family and church, I’ve been working on a course about scripting for testers. This course will be done in partnership with LinkedIn Learning and will be published on their platform.
Needless to say, getting this course together has been a lot of work, but I am very excited to be heading out to California to record it! I’m also excited for the course itself. I’ve talked a lot on this blog about the idea that testing is a technical job and that as testers we need to think about how we use technology and automation to do more than just run regression tests. This course is meant to help testers get started on the path to being technical testers. Maybe you’ve been in a more traditional or manual testing role and need to learn some basic skills, but don’t know where to start. The idea of this course is to give that basic grounding in helping you get started with that.
There is so much to do and learn that sometimes we just need some ideas and examples that show how others use these tools. My hope with this course it to help testers realize what a powerful and useful tool scripting is and how we can become better testers as we use it. I also hope to show that we don’t need to be scared of it. There is a lot we can do with a limited amount of information. The best way to learn is to do. Take some time today to learn and do something new!
When I started this blog, one of the reasons I wanted to do this was knowing that the best way to learn is to teach. I have certainly found that to be true in putting together this course. I has been a huge learning experience for me. I’m very thankful and excited to have had this opportunity and I’m sure I will be sharing some of my learning and experiences on this blog over the next couple of months. Stay tuned!
