Does a QA Engineer Need to Code?
In my experience I have met several quality assurance engineers. Some of them used to code, others no. So… is coding so necessary? Does it make the difference in QA activities? While we are shifting to a DevOps culture, with multiple buzzwords like Artificial Intelligence or 10X Engineer, is coding good for someone in the quality assurance? Let’s try to understand if it is a “must” to be a good quality-assurance-addicted.
