Thanks to this technology, you can not only automate tests but also speed up other processes in the project. In this article, you will learn why automation is so important, why we decided on such a solution, and how we dealt with the problems we encountered along the way.
From this article, you will learn step by step how to run automated tests with CI/CD managed by GitHub Actions together with a test runner able to deal with your private services deployed in an AWS VPC (virtual private cloud).
You will see how powerful is the combination of AWS Code Build and K6 tools in a case when automated performance testing is a must-have.

As a QA, I have to admit the last day at work before holidays is a disaster. But it is not as bad as when I am sick and I’m not able to work at all for a few days. And that is a complete catastrophe! Is there any way to deal with QA absence?
Test automation is seen as the next step from manual testing on the test development path. The popularity of such solutions and the positive associations they invoke (eg technological advancement) prove their universal demand. However, before implementing this solution at home, it is worth considering what automation can really give us, and what we will not achieve thanks to it.
Your phone is filled with a lot of applications. Everyone has, uses and knows them. They are useful and no one can do without them.
