Several challenges have appeared almost a quarter past the 21st century that require QA specialists to evolve superpowers.
Solutions, technology, methodologies, and how we do things are evolving. Testers and QA specialists must evolve powers to face these new challenges! Service bending, API wielding, monitoring telekinesis, cloud levitation, end user mind reading, and much more are some new superpowers QA must develop.
Trying the skills and techniques we used in the past will quickly send us the way of the Dinosaurs, in other words, extinct. Or, at the very least, constantly suffering from being hit by sprint asteroids, scarce food timelines, humongous automations, rustic tools, divided species, and much more.
Come and join us to learn the evolutive traits and powers the modern QA engineer needs in these modern times!
