Hello and welcome to my profile!

My name is Gianni Bruno and I am a software developer in test with several years of professional experience.

I have helped companies transform manual test suites to adopt modern and efficient automation testing that offers various advantages - from 24/7 monitoring, consistency, reliability and cost savings.

When I entered this industry I clearly remember how difficult it was to know where to start. The purpose of my content is to help my students easily understand the learning path by teaching them how to learn efficiently, effectively, and to slowly introduce them to more complex subjects once they have a strong foundation of core subjects.

My content covers a number of open source and popular technologies that are used in the real world by automation testers in the industry.

My passion is to help anyone that is interested to become a software engineer in test and my courses are a way of giving back to the community. I have been luckily enough to have tens of thousands of students enrol, have received countless success stories, and have a very positive rating on all my courses.

Thank you for viewing my profile and for the support. I hope you learn many new things!
