Ši akademija yra puikus būdas susipažinti su daugeliu skirtingų testavimo aspektų. Iš tikrų profesionalų sužinojau apie šiuolaikines testavimo rūšis, pradedant nuo bandomųjų testavimų ir baigiant testų automatizavimu, greitaveiklos, prieinamumo testavimu ir dar daug kitų. Šiuose kursuose įgytos žinios ir patirtis neabejotinai padėjo man išspręsti tikro gyvenimo problemas, susijusias su testavimu!
