We would like to report in our speech about how to build Test Automation from scratch and to keep high-class product quality. We are going to talk about some problems we have faced with during the process of test automation using Selenium Webdriver, Protractor and JMeter software tools.

Also a lot of people think that everyone can test without special skills. These two stereotypes are very popular. Jana will tell you how to make the profession “software tester” to be sounded proud from your mouth and she will report also about how her career started and developed.
