Leadership and Management Questions

As a manager, lead, director, VP, architect and/or a stake-holder, what questions do I think about when embarking on implementing Automation and Continuous Delivery. Strategic Decision Making and How to Choose a Solution

Technical Questions

Test Automation skill sets are broadly measured across programming languages, across libraries and across frameworks and across software development models. Choosing an Automation Solution

  • It is very difficult to find good trainers online especially when there are so many websites and searching always confuses me. I talked to seleniumframework trainer (Naresh) and I was convinced that this team could understand what my expectations are. They in fact helped me not just on the training, but also directed me towards their rich network of students. I am very grateful to the team for providing such a high quality training and being available to answer queries, however tough they seemed Keep up the good work Guys!
  • I came with a lot of apprehension to this course if I would ever be able to learn basics. The course starts from the very basics and gradually increases pace. The trainers like Pradeep have immense expertise on various tools and softwares, that they can vary their pace based on the skill level of the student. I felt the classes were initially slow, however when I started doing the practice exercises is when I could see the learning I was going through. The last few exercises were very tough and I hope I would be able to solve them in real time projects   -Tracy
  • I was very surprised when Ruby was chosen. However, I am completely convinced now that with its simplicity , Ruby wins over many other programming languages especially for test Automation. Pradeep was extremely knowledgeable and always connected real time experiences in how decisions are made. I was very impressed when Pradeep explained the pros and cons of programming language choice for Selenium. Can't thank you enough for helping me get an automation engineer job!   Cheers, Megan
  • Thank you for explaining all the details patiently.a I haven't found any training course so engaging and giving a holistic picture at the same time deep-dive into code. I came in with manual testing background, however I feel confident about Selenium Automation testing. Thank you very much   - Chris
