    Dharmesh Vaya - We are Manual Testers !!

    Okay so what if we are Manual Testers, we look at some core areas of testing. But then, we are often told to go the Automation way to improve efficiency, the throughput of our work and all the other blah blah blah..

    So no harm in doing Automation, but now comes the difficult part - Do we need to learn a language like Java/Python; Which tool do I learn etc. Can I do mobile testing with it?

    An interesting solution to all such questions is an OpenSource tool called 'Katalon'.
