Where do I start learning automated testing?

・1 min read

Hi dev.to! I'm a QA Analyst for a website building platform, and I love what I do. I'm nowhere near even thinking about leaving my company (I love it!!) but I know nothing about automated testing, and have no idea where to start. I don't have a dev background - I moved into this position after a few years in support at the company - so most of the things I turn up in a Google search still feel above my head. Any tips?

Looks like you already found my recommendation of TAU.

In addition, if your not already involved, The Ministry of Testing has some great content d community. Although much of the good stuff needs a pro subscription. (Worth checking if your employer would pay subs) ministryoftesting.com

I've seen a course on three for coding for none coders, but I haven't done it yet so I can't speak to it's usefulness.

Let's us know how you get on!

 

Thanks so much for the suggestions! I plan to check them out starting tomorrow.
