Coding Jag - Issue 16

Welcome to the 16th edition of Coding Jag brought to you by LambdaTest!

Automation testing is hard, and it's not easy being an automation tester. Especially when you are starting a new test automation project, you might go through many ifs and buts, particularly in choosing a programming language. However, you can consider a few factors like your comfortability or the level of support the language has before choosing the right one.

We walk you through some of the most used programming languages for UI test automation in 2020 with Angie Jones, giving insights into their industry usage. But, remember, we don't mean that these are the "best programming language," as the best language is the one that is best for your context.

In this edition, we have also covered Test Flakiness as one of the main challenges of automated testing, a video on becoming a full-stack QA/Automation Engineer, and more. This issue accounts for some exciting stories from the testing world that you would love to read.
