We will be creating a simple Rest Testing Framework in Java and JUnit that could be used for any testing scenarios.
With the growing demand for test automation experts and new technologies emerge at a rapid pace, gaining the relevant technical skills is crucial for candidates who are looking to improve their chances to get hired.
In order to answer the question – “What are the most desirable test automation skills in the upcoming year of 2016?”, our research team took over the top job searching websites around the globe looking for the most popular and required technologies in the test automation field.
