We asked Palash about his career so far and his advice for aspiring Software Testers:


What first attracted you to Automation (Software) Testing?

Coming from a manual testing background I would say the efficiency with which test cases can be done and can be tested multiple times is what attracted me to pursuing a career in Automation testing.


What does a Testers’ day look like in any company?

In any organisation, the goal is to improve the quality of the product. Day to day, as an Automation Tester, you would be writing automated test cases and finding bugs in applications and heling to make sure products are of the highest quality.

Automation is a fun field to work in; it can be like detective work in the field of Software. The basics of Automation testing can be taught to anyone who is motivated to learn. With great foundation and clear basic knowledge, anyone can do wonders and help improve the quality of a company’s software.

Automation Testing is important as it keeps the processes simple, smooth and effective. In the business world, generally Automation testing is preferred as it helps improve the quality of the product and covers a lot of cumbersome scenarios which can take lot of time if using Manual testing methods.
