QTP Tutorial, Software Development Engineer in Test
When trying to break into the IT industry, I started from nothing. I had no background in IT and no Bachelor of Computer Science degree. I learned everything on my own through research and practice utilizing the information that I found online. It was by no means an easy process. A lot of the courses and tutorials on QTP/UFT online were either outdated or didn’t offer a clear and concise explanation of the concepts they were teaching. When I started my first job as an Automation Engineer with QTP, I was surprised at how different the real world practices were. Thousands of hours later, I decided to start a company teaching Automation Testing the proper way, the real way, the efficient way. I wanted to take all of my knowledge, all of my faults and mistakes, and all of my on the job experience and create courses. Courses that would actually teach people the correct way to do automated software testing. I wanted to make sure that my students were not wasting any time on useless or outdated techniques(like Keyword Driven Frameworks). I only teach what works in the industry today and what will work years from now. I want to cut the learning curve for my students and only teach them the information they will actually use.
