Bas joins our host, Joss Åkesson and CTO Martin Mazur to talk about test automation.
The role of a test automation engineer is a difficult one to play well.
To shine as an automation engineer, you'll need solid experience and skills both in software testing and in software development. And let's face it: that isn't easy. In fact, it's hard! Knowing this, how do you grow as a test automation engineer? How do you avoid ending up in the no man's land of being good neither in testing nor in development? And do we really need test automation engineers in the first place?
Bas Dijkstra is an expert within the test automation field for some 15 years, first as an engineer, but now mostly as a trainer and consultant.
