What Engineers Have Learned on TAU

Engineers have learned how to automate UI, mobile, and API tests. They have learned to write tests in specific languages, including Java, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, and C#. They have applied tests through a range of frameworks including Selenium, Cypress, WebdriverIO, TestCafe, Appium, and Jest.

75,000 engineers would exceed the size of some 19,000 cities and towns in the United States. They work at large, established companies and growing startups. They work on every continent with the possible exception of Antarctica.
