Hello to you all!
Sorry it's been so long since my last post. Things have been fairly hectic in my life over the last 6 months and I haven't been able to dedicate much time to my professional development as a tester.
Since becoming certified as an Intermediate level tester I have gone on to study towards the "Advanced Test Manager" certification...I know, don't hate me, I'm really doing it so that I have a better chance of being hired as a tester in the near future. However, just as my previous post outlined, I have ABSOLUTELY NO EXPERIENCE IN SOFTWARE TESTING, only "Theory" and Insurance Testing.
It does make me a bit sad that I have to be so two faced just to catch a break, but this is how the job market is in this day and age. Having a superfluous certification seems to count more than actual experience in the field in a LOT of places...
Anyway, I've since broadened my horizons and am looking to get more involved with the community over the next few months, not only to boost my professional machismo, but to gain new skills through actually applying all the theory I've been given didactically through the professional body.
To do this, I have started trying to get to grips with the Selenium Plug In for Firefox.
And now for my question to you all, other than Alan Richardson’s publication “Selenium Simplified” (which is on the Christmas list!), does anyone know of any actual sites which make for good practice? Or where there would be any informative tutorials/information available to aid my learning?
Thank you all for your support, both past and present, and I look forward to updating you all again in the new year J
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy Hanukkah to all.
Love and hugs,
