Software testing talks #13: learning ML from basics, tips for the first interview & the best Christmas present for testers
It's been a long time since we released an article with the latest software talks, but we are back! So here is the 13th edition of our monthly Software Testing Talks that covers the latest news and discussions in the quality assurance and software development community in December 2022.
Looking for quality assured and reliable content? Look no further! We gathered everything about software testing trends from the most popular Linkedin groups, subreddits and Twitter threads so that you can read them all at once.
And remember that we have a LinkedIn group devoted to Software Testing Talks. So if you don’t want to wait until the beginning of next month to get another portion of tech news, get it right away from the group and discuss all significant events with like-minded people.
We know that the whole of December was flooded with many projects, and chatGPT, released on November 30, completely took over the space. In case you’ve missed it, this tweet will tell you more about the promising tool. But today, we want to cover other topics that might also interest you.
How to learn computer vision and machine learning from basics?
Computer Vision and Machine Learning are not the easiest subjects to learn, but it is undoubtedly one of the most exciting and rewarding. This field includes a variety of tasks, for example, object recognition and scene understanding.
However, this can be challenging for many people interested in learning these topics but need to become more familiar with coding or mathematics. So how can a person with no coding experience learn it?
“Hey Folks , I am not from science background but I want to learn computer vision and machine learning from basics? How to approach and where to start?”
What's the best way to prepare for an interview if I'm new to software testing?
The following helpful thread from December was from a Redditor just finishing a software testing course. They were asking the community about their first interview and what is the best way to prepare for it. This thread has valuable information on the best way to prepare and what should be considered before you take your interview.
“I’m just finishing software testing from a school called TEK school I was wondering what’s the best way to prepare for an interview I’m intermediate using selenium I suck at using cucumber and I’m intermediate at Java also does anyone have any recommendations to get better at those.”
And that’s a wrap on our December compilation of Software Testing Talks.
I hope you will take the opportunity to connect with us on Linkedin or via Reddit to get our monthly discussion lists directly to your feed. See you in January with fresh updates from software testing communities.
