About

LearnAutomation was an idea I had a year or so back when I noticed that there is very little in the way of websites that consolidates all of the knowledge out there about test automation. And not only that, a website that presents that knowledge in an easy to approach and process manner. I’m passionate about all things automation, and I want to share that passion with you and help you learn.

I’ve been in the software industry for close to 15 years now. Graduating from university with a 1st in Computer Science, I accidentally found myself in a software testing career instead of the development career I intended. But that was no bad thing… I quickly learned that via test automation, I still got to do all the coding and technical things that I loved. And I’ve loved it since.

My first role was developing test scripts in VB in a QTP framework, and from there, quickly moved in to roles where I was developing frameworks in C# for companies that had no previous automation in place. Fast forward to where I am now and I am freelancing as an automation consultant, going in to companies to build frameworks or provide support and expertise to those who already have automation in place.

If this site can help even one person get up and running with their test automation career, or even just improve their existing skills, then it would all be worth it, but the goal is obviously to help as many people as possible. It’s important to me that I’m writing content that’s relevant, so if there’s something you want to see, please visit the contact page and send me a message.
