For this project, I have decided to collaborate with a close relative of mine, Osman Eygu, as my client. He currently works at Nike headquarters located in Oregon, serving as a Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET). In his previous roles, Osman has amassed experience working for several corporate companies, including Walgreens. His primary responsibilities involve designing, developing, and maintaining a Test Automation Framework that verifies user stories and system requirements. Within his role at Nike, his project as an SDET focuses on the continuous testing of features, enhancements, upgrades, and bug fixes in product development.
When it came to selecting a topic, my client and I decided to pursue our research in automation. He specifically chose automation for various reasons, including how automation can cut costs and time within corporate companies, its reusability, and its capability to test various applications. This choice stems from a keen understanding of automation’s potential to streamline processes, enhance efficiency, and ensure the quality and reliability of software applications in a fast-paced corporate environment. Our research will delve into the nuances of automation within the IT landscape, exploring its benefits, challenges, and the latest technological advancements that can be leveraged to optimize testing and development processes at Nike and similar corporate companies. The topic isn’t too broad or narrow, in all means theres a lot of information out there, it’s all determined by how you search for them.
I have received confirmation from my client, who is fully informed about the circumstances and the project proposal. Regarding communication, we have agreed to use WhatsApp for both video and phone calls. Finally, I will be interviewing my client in the upcoming days.
