Coding Jag - Issue 19

Welcome to the 19th edition of Coding Jag brought to you by LambdaTest!

Each of us like predicting the future, but if the last year has taught us anything, it's that predicting the future is not easy, and predicting the future in the face of change is nearly impossible. Now that doesn't mean we'll stop predicting the future or predictions are not useful - they are!

Of course, there's no guarantee that these predictions will come true, so you need to take them with a grain of salt. After a tumultuous 2020, what's on the test automation horizon for the next 12 months? Here are nine test automation predictions for the yearahead by @Michael Battat!.

In this edition, we have also covered some of the week’s best product launches, including LT Browser, a next-gen browser to build, test & debug mobile websites on 45+ mobile, tablet, & desktop viewports. This issue accounts for many more exciting stories from the testing world that you would love to read.
