Becoming a Coding Tester – With Adam Satterfield
Becoming a Coding Tester
As a tester, there are a lot of times where I don’t know how to do something.
I have learned that when I don’t know how to do something, if I can break it down into manageable parts, then it becomes easier to approach and learn. I have taken this approach to teaching testers to learn how to code and approach coding. Sometimes when a problem is so large, we shy away from it. Such is the same for many testers learning how to code.
Learning how to become a coding tester empowers a tester to be more self-reliant and less dependent on someone else to write their test scripts, which can take valuable time from the critical and time-crunched testing process.
Learning to code positions a tester for long-term career growth, opens up new professional opportunities, and gives them the perspective to be a better tester with a deeper understanding of what questions to ask and how to approach a meaningful testing plan to gain better insights.
Adam will share—step-by-step—how he has helped testers increase their skills to learn a programming language, highlighting potential stumbling blocks along the way, and discussing how to overcome them.
- Testers will have a plan for how to approach the large task of learning how to code.
- Testers will see that other testers have been down this road and have succeeded.
- Testers will see what benefits learning to code can provide for their career.
