Passionate about exploratory testing, PKM,
healthy lifestyle, learning and music.

What I Do
Testing leads to failure, and failure leads to understanding
I am am passionate about exploratory testing and I know how to write scripted test cases too. To achieve desired test coverage I analyse both explicit and implicit requirements, use different testing techniques, test scenarios, user personas, positive, neagtive testing and testing heuristics. I love visualise testing using mindmaps and diagrams.
API / Web Services
With the rise in cloud applications and interconnect platforms, API testing is a necessity. I am beginner in API testing but I know the basics of HTTP protocol, Authentication, Authorization, API methods, API testing types and vulnurabilities. I have some experience performing simple REST web services testing using Postman and Tavern (Python plugin). I constantly improve my API skills by practicing using API tools.
As a manual tester, I can provide fast and accurate visual feedback. Exploratory testing does not require time-consuming planning and preparation. It gives a human perspective on the look and feel of a software product and helps to verify compliance with the defined business requirements.
I have hands-on experience developing web UI tests using Python, Pytest and Selenium Web Driver. I am familiar with the basics of Git and GitHub, able to use Unix command-line interface. I am also familiar with the basics of CI/CD and has experience setting up Web UI tests using Jenkins and AWS EC2.
Today, most users access the Internet from mobile devices anytime, anywhere. I can help you to check compatibility, unstable functionality and UI rendering on iOS & Android to make sure that your software product provides the best experience possible to every potential customer.
Quality Bug Reports
The key goal of the bug report author is to provide high-quality information, to help stakeholders make wise decisions about which bugs to fix. Title, issue type, priority, environment, action performed and attachments (screenshots, videos and logs) – I will make sure that all elements and fields form well written and clear bug reports.
Tavern API Testing Examples
Tavern API Testing Examples “Tavern is a pytest plugin, command-line tool and Python library for automated testing of APIs, with a simple, concise and flexible YAML-based syntax” (https://taverntesting.github.io/) I created GitHub repo containing 30+ simple Tavern test examples and decided to share it on my website. I think it can helpful for someone like me who has just started to learn Tavern or looking for a tool to automate API

Testing Internship Update and Thoughts on My Progress April-May 2020 turned out to be quite different from previous months. Lockdowns, social distancing and other many things have became a new reality as we saw Covid-19 cases growing. Kids no longer attend schools, nobody knows, people around us loosing jobs, nobody
Testing Internship Update, Selenium Python Tests, EC2 instance and Jenkins, API Testing, Plans for the Next 3 Months
Reflecting on what I learned about test automation, how much testing I did in March 2020 and my further plans. Testing Internship Update and Thoughts on My Progress It’s been a while since I wrote my last blog post in January 2020. It’s been extremely difficult to find time for writing. I tried to spend as much time as possible practising Python and learning new TAU tools. I also must
