    I highly recommend boot camp with Sofia. It will definitely improve your skills, will give you understanding of the whole picture of QA process. During these 5 weeks of the boot camp you will be able to feel what it is like to work in a real company. Sofia is a great tutor - she knowledgeable, patient, attentive to each and every student and to each and every answer. She is able to hold the attention of the whole group. We learned so much from her. I also liked a lot how the learning process was organized, it was such a workflow when each new module comprises the knowledge you gained at a previous module. And if you are diligent and determined enough and complete all the tasks, at the end you'll be absolutely proud of yourself. Of what you are able to do at the end of the course and how knowledgeable and confident you became. Thanks a lot to Sofia, to Michail, I suppose it was him who created all this course, to Slava for his framework. And a tip for those who enroll: go ahead and revise SQL, Postman and types of testing - you gonna use these a lot.

  31. Vitalija R.L.May, 2021

    I took internship after online class. From online class I got theoretical knowledge, what is SQA. After this internship I got: First, I was able to combine theoretical knowledge with practice. I experience a real project. For e.g.: I knew what a Test Set, Test Case are, but through this practice I learned how it relate to test automation, how important it is to be accurate when writing Test Cases. I could learned from my mistakes and from best practice another students. Second, I learned to actually use tools that are popular in the work environment. I got better understanding where I should use one tool and where another tool. For e.g. now I know why I have to learn the basics of Java or another language. I gained more confidence in using those tools. Third, I learned how to work in IT team and got more understanding how can be in real IT/QA team. After the internship I see a broader view of SQA and better understanding of the SQA process.
  32. InaMay, 2021

    Everything was useful for me, the practice helped me a lot to understand everything . Especially API , ui automation
  33. BogdanaMay, 2021

    That we were able to practicing with lot of tools and communicate with each other. That is a great thing to have a mentor you can ask questions or clarify something when u need it. Sofia was very helpful and supportive. It was great to understood what this job look alike from the inside. Before the internship i wasn't sure if QA is that something i want to keep going with, but after this internship i realized that this is what i really want to do in mine life. And i really enjoyed the whole process of studying and learning new things during this internship. I believe it's because Sofia made the process of studying enjoyable with all her detailed explanations of every subjects and gave us all the assignments, practice and support we needed.
  34. AnnaMay, 2021

    All was useful! Have real practice with tools (Jira, Postman, Intellij Idea, GitHub), speak on stand up meetings, receive feedback, see how problems can be solved for other students. To be honest I cannot imagine how would I go to the job market without this bootcamp. Such a big difference in knowledge and self-confidence! Thank you for this program!

  45. HoneyMay, 2021

    It was useful because it felt like a real job or close to a real one which is needed I believe because that helps learn more about the field. Its hands on training and counts towards our experience which we can include in our resume. The tools were useful and Sofia helped us understand each tool from her knowledge. Also there were somethings that I didn't understand 100% during regular class sessions but Sofia went over them again as recap and they made more sense. Helped us to prioritize our time management, schedule and the way we communicate with the team. Sofia was always there to help answer with any project questions and even personal ones in a timely manner. Overall it was a good experience and just want to thank Portnov for this opportunity
