Over time, manual testers begin to think about the direction of further development, someone goes in another direction (development, analytics, etc.), while others decide to try themselves in areas of testing that require deeper technical knowledge (the ability to code). For example, automation and load testing.
In this talk, we will look at the transition to automation from the perspective of web applications. In the first stages, the beginner has a reasonable question where to start? This includes the choice of programming language, IDE, and how a manual tester can make life easier for themselves in the early stages of entering test automation. This talk is most useful for those who do not have mentors within the company for further growth in automation (or there is no automation at all).
