    If you have plans pursuing a QA career and willing to devote about 4 hours a day at the online class and about the same amount of time(maybe a bit more) doing your homework, this bootcamp will definitely give you more bounce to the ounce compared to anything else, even the full time class. We went through it with instructor Galina and she did a herculean job turning a group of random people with diverse skill level into a somewhat you can call a coherent team of QA engineers. Being a good software engineer and being able to teach those skills is not always the same, it this case we were fortunate to get both, it certainly helped a lot. Plus, we were able to get help during off hours, sometimes an extra hour of answering our questions, helping installing necessary soft and whatever else in-between. So, don't hesitate to spend that dollar on this class, the knowledge you'll gain with worth tenfold. Plus, you don't need to be the sharpest tool in the shed to learn the craft if you have a good instructor, so don't think twice.

    Bootcamp with Galina was the best decision I have made after completing the main online course. Galina is an experienced instructor who is always there to help her students ( during, after, and in between classes). I have a much clearer vision of the whole QA process, a better understanding of REST API, automation, Selenium Webdriver, and other front-end and back-end testing tools. Thank you, Galina!

    After that bootcamp my expertise became more strong. Galina helped to understand how everything works in real projects. We had dip learning REST API testing, a lot of questions with automation. Thank you Galina and Portnov Computer School for that opportunity

    Galina, thank you very much for the experience and knowledge that I gained on your course. The program includes all the necessary theory and practice for a beginner QA tester, from general concepts of the testing process to testing automation. During the internship, I was given the opportunity to participate in such important work stages as sprint planning meetings, daily stand-up meetings, grooming. I also learned a lot about working with the Jira project management tool, creation of test sets, their implementation, using of various plugins for creating reports, which will be very useful in future work. The practice also included various types of front-end testing (UI testing, exploratory testing, smoke testing, regression testing) and back-end testing (working with SQL queries, API testing, writing and running automated test, using Selenium WebDriver) The material of each lesson was laid out in the most complete and detailed way, with all the necessary clarifications and explanations. In addition to the main lesson, students had the opportunity to get answers to their questions at an additional meeting after the lesson. Thanks a lot!

    Galina is the best teacher! After her classes, I got a complete impression of how and where and with what we will work! Bootcamp is the best decision that I have made to master the profession of QA Engeenier, thank you very much. Galina always took us more than the allotted time, she stayed with us after the class, if we had any blockers! I hardly recommend this teacher and her class! After the course, you will have a complete picture of this profession.

    Today I finished the evening Bootcamp With Galina. We went through all the testing stages step by step. We tested web applications, reported bugs, wrote test cases and run test sets using Jira. We studied and practiced API testing, Cucumber, Selenium, Java/JS and Database. Learned about Agile and Scrum, went through interview questions. We practiced a lot. I am not just learned new tools and skills but gained confidence for job search and interviewing. Galina is an amazing teacher, incredibly helpful and attentive. Thank you, Galina.

    What a wonderful experience with an INTENSE EVENING BOOTCAMP! I have not regretted it more than once and I am still impressed! Galina is just an amazing teacher! She tries to give you as much information as possible during classes, explain things to you and guide you, but she also expects you to work hard too. He will ask you as a strict teacher. But if you encounter a problem, Galina will do everything possible to help you, explain it again to make sure that you really understand the idea. All this experience is priceless! Many thanks to Galina and I wish good luck to my wonderful teammates and future students!

    Thank you Galina for all of your knowledge. This boot camp was helpful to envision a real experience as a professional QA. Your teaching style is definitely effective and has proven to excel the standards of others. Thank you for your commitment and time after class and whenever the students needed your assistance. Thank you Galina.

    What a great experience with INTENSIVE EVENING BOOTCAMP! Galina is a wonderful instructor! All the classes were well prepared by Galina with lots of practice and great explanation. After each class students were provided with valuable materials for self-study. The bootcamp is over but I still have an access to all the recorded classes and all the study materials! Thank you for giving students this opportunity to practice on the real projects and for your support!

    Whether you want to become a better manual QA Eng. or your sights are set on automation this course is a must! You will get a deeper and more nuanced understanding of subjects you may be already familiar with (test cases, bug reports, API testing, XPath, SQL, working with Jira, Agile methodology...) but also you will learn many tools and the ways to incorporate them in QA process. You will start with getting familiar with an application (requirements, exploratory testing ) and finish with automating regression test cases (which you will write ))). Thus, you will get a great experience "from start to finish". It's going to be challenging. You will have to immerse yourself in a learning process and be ready to learn and work on your tasks every day for the duration of the course. Galina is fantastic! She is trying to give you as much information as possible during the classes, explain things and guide you but she also expects you to do your part. (Imagine that you are at the workplace but someone actually cares to mentor you). But should you run into the problem Galina will go out her way to help you, to explain once again, to make sure that you actually grasped the idea. The whole experience is priceless! Huge Thank You to Galina and best of luck to my great teammates and future students!

    Galina is a brilliant teacher. I liked a lot her special way of teaching and explaining in simple words. All the classes well structured with a lot of practice. And also individual help after each class is really valuable. Bootcamp gave me confidence and complete picture of manual and automation testing. Cannot be grateful enough for this chance to be part of this class.

    I finished the evening Bootcamp. The entire Bootcamp is logically structured. It gives you a feeling as if you are really working for an actual company. The amount of material which was covered is immeasurable! The instructor Galina was very knowledgeable, patient, helped us resolve any issues we had. Besides the fact that we had hands-on experience with a real project, I’ve learned so many new tools and gained new skills, and most importantly I understood the whole workflow of QA profession. I strongly recommend it!

    I took part in the evening Bootcamp. We extensively used Postman, Cucumber, and Java testing frameworks along with reiterating and expanding functional testing aspects. And that was great! The workflow and the atmosphere of the real-world IT project. You do feel like a part of a team. Cannot fail to mention the instructor, Galina, who was always there for help and easy to reach out to.

  19. AlexJuly, 2021

    An online bootcamp I went through was extremely useful for setting my knowledge in a proper order, though the was a lot of hours of learning different stuff prior to it. I've gained enough hands on experience and confidence to make it on a job market. I've got the job in a month after finishing the bootcamp. Recommended
