Hello, hello fellow Agilers
The economic times has found me living off the govt for awhile. Job prospects are difficult and outside of moving they will continue to be tough. While I am reading a few textbooks, I have found that practical experience is more of value to employers. I am interested in discovering some various options that will allow me to 'learn at home' or 'via volunteer work' new skills related to Quality Assurance Agile and/or Automation. Are there FREE applications available that I can obtain to try at my own pace or training programs that are affordable?On the testing front trying asking on the Agile Testing mailing list, see my post on Agile Mailing lists: http://agilepainrelief.com/notesfromatooluser/2009/06/agile-mailing-lists.htmlThere are many tools you learn - but it depends on what you're trying to achieve (here are some examples):Browser Automation: SeleniumATDD: RobotFramework, FitNesse, Cucumber....As for training many CST's offer donation only courses, I assume some Scrum.org trainers do the same thing. But a better question is what problem do you expect the training to help you solve?
