Much of the software being developed and used in the world must be tested continuously. However, managing continuous testing is not easy—it involves tracking which environments have deployed new code, when each piece needs testing, and how those requirements integrate back into the moving process of continuously delivering software. Test automation is the process of automating all those testing needs, including how much of the system different tests cover and which types of testing might be required in which cases, which helps software teams maintain a high standard of quality.

Although the job outlook for test automation engineers specifically has not been mapped, computer programmers earn a median wage of about $84,000 annually, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. 12% growth is expected across all computer and information technology occupations between 2018 and 2028, which is faster than the 5% projected growth rate across all occupations.

Both immersive bootcamps and courses are available for people interested in learning more about software test automation. Below is a list of those courses and bootcamps, paired with reviews by students who have completed them.
