Our reading recommendations of the week #29 – 2019

Welcome to our latest reading recommendations!

This week we suggest you a few links to consider. Not only readings, but also videos and a learning platform:

  • Test Automation University in 12 questions
  • Learning how to learn
  • Modern Web Testing
  • User Inyerface

First we’ll start with an article written by Zoe Thivet on her company blog (une fois n’est pas coutume, in French) Hightest: Test Automation University en 12 questions – réponses. TestAutomationUniversity is a platform containing lots of free courses on several topics around test automation. Videos and transcriptions are done by well known experts, most of them are very clear and easy to follow. Learning is made fun with the help of a bit of gamification, winning points and certificates with quiz. If you want to improve your automation skills, that’s definitely an online university to consider.

Speaking of learning, do you know how to learn? In this conference talk taken from MiXiT that occured a few weeks ago in Lyon, Mary Poppendieck, can give you a few tips, thanks to her very long and rich career: Learning how to learn.

Then another video from the same conference (yes, we love crêpes) with Dmitry Vinnik diving into several test solutions (and tools) Selenium-based or not. So it’s about theory and tools like Selenium, Webdriver, Cypress.io, testCafe, WebriverJS,etc and it’s here: Modern Web Testing: Going Beyond Selenium.

Finally, let’s have some fun. Who never “fights” with developers or product owner about UI or UX inconsistencies and things you might be alone to consider as an issue? Try User Inyerface (I love the name) and tell us what you think about it. Personally, almost on every page I had a “Oh, I’ve seen this before” moment.

Holidays are coming for most of us. Enjoy your summer, we still don’t know if we’ll have the energy to publish other reading recommendations before September, but don’t worry, we’ll be back! 😉
