What does a software testing engineer do and how do you become one?

I'm learning html, css and javascript on my own and starting to look at job postings to see which areas of technology most interest me. I thought I'd be going the route of web development but I came across a post for a Manual Automation Tester and it sounds so interesting. Here's the description: "The team is looking for a test engineer that can help ensure the team produces quality deliveries. The services that this team creates will be in a microservice architecture, running in Kubernetes on AWS. The services will handle millions of REST calls per day. The service work will be primarily greenfield (created from the ground-up). The project management style is Agile, with elements of both Kanban and Scrum. The role of the Test engineer is to perform black box testing of the REST services, with a focus on functional testing. This includes alpha testing, acceptance testing, ad-hoc testing, and back-end validate of databases. The Test engineer will work closely with developers on a daily basis." Can someone please tell me in plain English what this job actually is? I'm a really detail oriented person and I might like this field, but I barely know what they're talking about, lol. I've heard of Agile but not clear on what it is. Many thanks! #computers #software #engineering #testing #Agile #databases

What software do market analysts use?

Hi everyone, I want to invest my winter break into learning a new skill. What softwares do market research analysts use? I know they would use some VBAs and will vary depending on the firm and market they are in, but what would you recommend me to learn over the next three weeks? What online resources could I use? What kind of university classes to take to prepare myself becoming a market research analyst? I'm currently working on SQL languages as a start, but want to ask for some advice. Happy new year! #computer-software #software #e-learning #statistics #research #market-research #data-analysis #analytics #business-analysis #marketing #vba #databases

What is the highest level of certification an entry level database administrator should consider obtaining?

Today I earned my first entry-level IT certification, the CompTIA A+. By the time I complete my degree, I would like to take the Oracle 12c Administrator Certified Associate. Without any experience in the field, would this certification increase or decrease the chance of getting interviews? #information-technology #databases

With seemingly a decreasing number of women in the IT Field, besides a related degree, do you recommend a specific minor and/or specialized certifications/qualifications to ensure that I will stand out among other graduates entering the work force?

I will be a female college freshman in the fall. I am majoring in computer information systems and love the ability to organize by creating and using software applications/databases. I also hope to have a lucrative career with flexible hours so that I will have an opportunity to be a great wife and mother down the road. I would like to utilize my early post-graduate/single years to excel and maximize my growth. #business #software #director #women #databases #portfolio-management #pmo
