Event description
Do we really need a test automation engineer, and if so, how do you become a really good one?

About this event

Knowledge Gatherings are back for a new season. First out is Bas Dijkstra, a world-renowned test automation engineer with over 15 years of experience in the field.

Bas joins our host, Joss Åkesson and CTO Martin Mazur to talk about test automation.

The role of a test automation engineer is a difficult one to play well. To shine as an automation engineer, you'll need solid experience and skills both in software testing and in software development. And let's face it: that isn't easy. In fact, it's hard! Knowing this, how do you grow as a test automation engineer? How do you avoid ending up in the no man's land of being good neither in testing nor in development? And do we really need test automation engineers in the first place?

Bas Dijkstra is an expert within the test automation field for some 15 years, first as an engineer, but now mostly as a trainer and consultant.

Over the years, Bas has worked with a wide range of clients in the Netherlands as well as abroad. Initially, Bas was mostly responsible for creating, maintaining and extending test automation solutions, but now mostly focus on helping others (individuals, teams and organizations) improve their test automation skills and efforts.

Join us at on the 2nd of February, you can catch our earlier Knowledge Gatherings with Dylan Beattie and Troy Hunt among others on our Youtube channel
