Slava's approach to teaching is exceptional, making even the most complex concepts digestible. I now feel confident to start my career in QA Automation. Thanks for this transformative experience!
  9. ArturJuly, 2021

    First of all THANK YOU very much for this course! I learned a lot of new things from it. To be honest I don't have experience in QA, just in Desktop/User support. I have a little experience in Java. So... I really like this course and appreciate your efforts to help me, THANK YOU!!!
  10. SergeyJuly, 2021

    The strong focus on professional development is the most fabulous point of the course IMHO. I've learned topics and obtained skills enough to start a new role as a QA Automation Engineer almost a month ago. Moreover, a big picture of QA Automation given by Slava helped me to build my own plan for self education in the domain and for further professional development. I really appreciate him for that great class.
  11. NatashaJuly, 2021

    Excellent online course, very well organized and designed, provides priceless practical knowledge. Great slides and material recommendation. Especially like that it has class video recordings (I think it really helps to eliminate many unnecessary questions to instructor: students can simply go back and re-watch the video to capture what was missed). I would really like to be contacted about future Slava's courses. Thank you!
  12. AndyJuly, 2021

    I enjoyed the course. Overall the program was clear to understand and helped me to learn basic coding skills. The program was structured well and the presenter was very skillful in explaining complexity of coding in a simple way. The team leader was great and provided all necessary support to students to complete homework or answer questions. All the best to the team.
  13. VaidasJuly, 2021

    Everything was very well organized. I can say with confidence that Slava is one of the best teachers and it's a reason why I choose the Portnov Computer School for Automation class.
  14. AnastasiaJuly, 2021

    Slava has magic talent to explain complicated things on very simple language. He changed my mind, all difficult questions became just clear and understandable. The most difficult part was Java interview coding challenge and he explained this topic many times and was so patient with us. He gave us useful advice and interview tips, showed reality and problems in real environment and gave us global understanding of Software testing processes which really important if you feel not confident. Thank you so much for this class! You gave us more than we’re expected. You really tried to do the best for us and give us key for successful and interesting life with opportunity to be Automation Engineer and do really amazing things. I appreciate your help and support! You’re the best teacher in my life! Please keep going and continue to make difference in this world! You’re changing people destiny!
  15. RinatJuly, 2021

    Thanks for Slava - he showed all the best and useful experience he have.
  16. LenaJuly, 2021

    First of all, I would like to thank you and your team for sharing all this incredible information, for your patience and support!!! When I decided to take this course, I thought it might be impossible to finish with my level of experience in QA and programming. Fortunately, I was surprised because you explained, drew, demonstrated and repeated everything several times. Everything were perfect: the course material was presented in a clear and structured manner, handouts cover every single topic, home works were enough complicated for self-improving. It was very nice to have people with different experience level and background in group because they asked unexpected questions: from simple to very complicated. The bootcamp was dynamic, intense and super cool!
  17. JuliaJuly, 2021

    Organization of the learning process is very good, our team lead as well as support from others was very good. Slava always responded and gave clear answers. Thank you for the great opportunity and very deep knowledge. Great job!
  18. ElenaJuly, 2021

    Thanks for the course. Very structured, understandable even for a non-technical person. The course keeps you busy with homework and ongoing study. This is a good push to learn more and more.
  19. RudyJuly, 2021

    This course is brilliant! Packed with useful knowledge and very well structured. Sometimes I was even overwhelmed by the amount of new things to learn. Slava goes above and beyond in sharing his knowledge and experience. This course is priceless.
  20. IreneJuly, 2021

    • The course is well structured. • The course is suitable for people with experience in QA as well as for beginners, but with high motivation. • The main advantage of the course is learning through practice from the very first lesson! • It's very helpful the students were divided into teams with their leaders!
  21. DanJuly, 2021

    Slava, you're a true expert in the field! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and teaching us!
  22. AnthonyJuly, 2021

    I am very satisfied with the class. Everything was clear and understandable. Especially I would like to mention the XPath part - it was just brilliant.
  23. GregJuly, 2021

    Slava is a very strong presenter and a teacher. Great structure of the course: the slides and homework assignments provided the students with everything we need to study at home and learn with hands on practice. Thank you so much for separating us into the groups and a huge thanks to our volunteers that dedicated so much time to review our homework and guide us when we needed.
