What is QA Automation?

Automation is used in software testing to run an unlimited amount of code on another product in order to test its efficiency and identify and prevent errors. The software performs the task of testing, saving time and effort for professional software testers and developers.

The essence of this field is programming the software to perform multiple tasks efficiently and quickly.

The Popularity of QA and Automation

The software field has been evolving rapidly, and with it grew the demand for software testing and automation. In software testing, advanced knowledge is essential for testers. Accordingly, the demand for greater efficiency in the world of testing has risen, utilizing automation tools to conduct tests and achieve efficiency in testing and development.

Currently, the field is central and inseparable from the world of technology and product development. Accordingly, the demand for skilled workers in the field is very high and is expected to remain so in the future.
