Coding Jag - Issue 31

Welcome to the 31st edition of Coding Jag brought to you by LambdaTest!👐

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought us closer in more unique ways than ever. Within the first few months of its onset, it became apparent that we are truly a global village, whether we like it or not. It caused an abrupt change and accelerated processes that had been occurring slowly for several years, including a drive for digital transformation.

Last year was a period full of changes and evolutions to the way we work, especially for QA engineers working remotely. Even after COVID-19 is long gone, there are some QA trends to keep when we get back to the ‘New Normal.’
