AccessHQ Test Automation Bootcamp 2018

Are you interested in an IT career where you can showcase your inquisitive mind and passion for quality towards the end user?
If your answers is YES, then the AccessHQ Test Automation graduate Bootcamp might be the perfect start to your career.

The bootcamp is a free, intensive one week course in Test Automation. The course is delivered by an industry expert with 20 years of experience.

The course is conducted in a hands on workshop style where you will develop tests against a system using the current market leading tooling (Selenium WebDriver & Java).

Throughout the course your ability will be assessed and if successful, have the opportunity to be offered a permanent Test Automation position with AccessHQ.


What is Test Automation and how do I make a career out of it?

Test Automation is a rapidly growing arm of the software quality assurance field. With an increase in Agile and DevOps, development practices, test automation is becoming crucially important.

Test Automation is about identifying tests and test processes, such as data creation or environment health checks, which take a significant amount of time and effort on a high frequency ongoing basis. From there it’s about engineering a solution to reduce that effort significantly or remove it entirely.

Robust Test Automation is an engineering activity which requires the same technical expertise, rigour and approach as software development.

Test Automation Consultants say to be successful, you will need to become a master of many tools. The tooling / language landscape in Test Automation is very broad and grows constantly. Often there is no one tool to solve all problems, so to stay ahead of the curve you will need to become proficient in as many languages as possible (Java, C#, NodeJS, Python, Ruby to name a few).

You will also need to adapt and learn new tools quickly and be able to apply them using best practice approaches.

You’ll need to be able to reverse engineer systems to work out the most efficient and robust ways to interact with them.

You’ll need to use a rigorous software development approach to ensure that the test automation code you deliver is of the highest quality resulting in the lowest possible maintenance cost.
