Essential Advice
Understand the technology. the more you gain knowledge on technology the more you will be confident enough to handle it. understand the features rather than working like machine. You will learn your skillset once you get thorough knowledge on feature and respective technology
Changes in the industry
Started with product company. Its all about understanding the flow of test cycle. release cycles. the more you start to test at some point you will reach a saturation in that domain. over there innovations plays main role. you will innovate the new methodology to improve the testing.
