My name is Gianni Bruno and I'm an experienced automation test engineer that has helped countless companies adopt automation testing into their enterprise environments.

I have also spent countless hours learning the ins and outs of automation test engineering and like to keep up to date with the latest automation trends - something that is important in today's rapidly expanding market.

I have been responsible for teaching numerous people/ teams to learn about automation testing. I know what works best so that my students get the very best from my courses.

I’m also the Founder of: QAUNI and WebdriverUniversity two websites that help teach automation test engineering; which is aimed at beginner level to people that are experienced but would like to refresh skills or be informed of the latest technology trends.

Example projects that I have worked on and responsibilities:

- Solely responsible for developing a large framework from scratch to test a wide ranges of websites and user journeys; currently in place within the current organisation which I work for and playing a critical role within the current release process.

- Developed a small and compact framework to scan 100’s of URL’s detecting flaws and exceptions in turn capturing images and generating reports in likelihood exceptions were detected.

- Developed a medium sized framework to conduct continuous monitoring using continuous integration (Jenkins); all relevant parties would be notified via a custom designed emails which includes exception images when problems occur such as particular URL’s, user journeys etc. not functioning accordingly.

- Created a bespoke framework which would read data from external CSV files, this data would then feed into hundreds of automation test cases, comparing values against the system under test and flagging all exceptions and anomalies. 

- And much more!

Finally, thank you for taking some time to read my biography. I wish to welcome you to my courses and hope you learn and enjoy the course contents. Remember knowledge is power and always strive to keep learning!
