Flood gates opened in 2019 when a blind man sued Dominos that he could not order pizza and won the case.
From that day many people started suing companies for web accessibility issues left right center.
In response companies prioritized web accessibility stories.
What was the last consideration suddenly became priority overnight.
New positions were created ,
Ex: Accessibility Coach , Accessibility Tester and more
In fact a couple of our web dev bootcamp students were hired just to work on accessibility.
Accessibility was introduced in the early software development lifecycle which was pretty much an after though .
I punished our students to bring a presentation on web accessibility on follows topic, Will share with all best presentation with permission from student
Here are topics I asked them to cover
• Understand Accessibility ( A11y) https://lnkd.in/dS7rHGKX
WCAG 2.1 Standard
• Semantic HTML and its role ?
• What do Screen Readers do and how do they work , some example ?
• What tags to use for accessibility ?
• What is Aria and why do we use them, Examples ?

Some observations from seeing 6 offers in the last 30 days with our students.
Focus on tiktok..They are doubling up and hiring aggressively .
One of the students just got the offer with a very healthy salary and bonus.
I was shocked seeing compensation would be an understatement.
I will just say that even I have not made that kind of money in my entire life.
Find someone who works there and get referred .
Check levels.fyi for salary info..
Couple of students are starting with the Federal government. There are many civilian agencies that are open to Non US Citizens / Non Permanent Residents
You will mostly be working with a civilian contractor but your end client will be the government.
Both students got full time remote positions.
Surprisingly both students are NOT based out of DC where most govt agencies are based out of.
One of the other students ( Stem OPT ) who was affected by the layoff as a data analyst was able to secure another job with almost same pay within 3 weeks.
Again little surprising to me as it will typically take 4 to 5 weeks at minimum to secure a full time job going through all those rounds of interview etc etc .
Couple of our working students told me that they are looking for GCP Bigquery.
Tons of companies are moving data warehouse from teradata etc to GCP BigQuery ( Would be worth putting time in learning that skill set )
One of the best students got 4 offers in 4 weeks . Person has 5 years prior experience but had a large career gap.
Switched companies in 2 weeks as the second company has much higher compensation .
Stopped responding to recrutiers and cancelled existing interviews . It was crazy
This shows that there is no shortage of jobs, only shortage of good talent.
Some Unrelated Fun Conversations with student
Another student who graduated 2 years back told me that he is the best front end dev in the team and only works 45 min a day ( thanks to Wynisco Inc. bootcamp :) ).There is just no work .Looking to switch as he is bored and not challenged.
Did I tell you he makes 6 figures ?
I was like where were these jobs when I was working .I want that damn job :)
SOME OOPS MOMENT
Talked to a student I helped with a resume for a few months .
She is like I want to join the bootcamp.
I am like ..Sure
I got the internship and internship hours and bootcamp hours are overlapping
I was like..Down goes my money :(
Me recovering and saying ..Internships don't pay that well .Why work for pennies ...Why don't you join bootcamp and make 6 figures faster ..
He is like ..I am making 5K..
Me :: Red faced :)
Till next time ..

What is dirty?
When a user fills up the form without completely filling up all fields and leaves either deliberately or accidentally. We call that state dirty.
I did not know myself until we worked on a project where we had a lot of forms.
You can either fill up a new form or edit an existing form.
So how do you determine if your form is dirty or not?
First, we have to maintain 2 states.
Initial State and Current State
If a user is trying to close the browser or move to another page, We need to warn them that they have not saved their form.
Well you have to compare the initial state Vs Final State
You have to compare the object values of the initial state vs the final state
Some libraries can help you deep compare.
Some devs use JSON.stringify to convert form value into a string and compare that
Some use deep compare libraries like Lodash and Ramda. They provide utilities right out of the box to compare
Some form libraries like Formik provide an API Reference value that automatically tells you whether their form is dirty or not.

You can use a clutch or any other similar websites to find internships. It's the hacker's way.

For short period of time, to help laid off job seekers,
We have decided to open source our data engineering bootcamp material
It's the same website we use for students
Check it out here.
Curious how we build this docs website with minimum effort and tech behind it ?
Its based on library @docusaurus which is react based static site generator
It even has a site wide elastic search powered by @algolia built in.
( Try Searching it on website, I am sure you will be impressed )
Tag and send your data engineers / data analyst / data scientist friends.

Domain is the process of interviewing candidates for a specific domain or area of expertise. It is a key step in the hiring process, and helps ensure that the candidate is a good fit for the position
Domain knowledge is essential for testing any software product, and it has its own benefits like:
1. It reduces the training time
2. It helps in quick defect tracking
3. It gives good idea on UI feature and backend processing
4. It gives good hold over workflow, business process and rule
5. It helps to understand easily the technical terminology
Eg: There are different domains like Insurance domain, Banking, Health care, finance etc
Imagine we have an experience only on Insurance domain - that means we know terms like what is Insurance, Quotes, Benefits, Endorsements, Policy, Policy holder, Medical questions, Medical conditions, Risk involved, Destinations, Covers, Payments and Calculations. It has an effect on customers Insurance.
Health care: it has a direct effect on the quality of life of people in each country. Health care (or healthcare) is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in humans. we will go through certain standards to work on this.
But whatever the domain is, role of tester is to make test plans , test scenarios as how to test the new updated system in the best possible way so as to ensure that it is bug free and safe to use.
but, coz of the 5 points which are mentioned above leads to domain specific.. If you have a knowledge on only one domain and company needs immediate joiners as per the requirement. They will hire who has a knowledge on specific domain related to the company coz it saves time. No need to begin from scratch coz u are already have a experienced in that domain. u already know those terms and it becomes easy when they hire u.
If you learn one domain very strong - you can learn any domain in months. If you have not - then it doesn’t matter how many domains you have been in.
Industry has the bad habit of branding you to be a part of one domain if you have been there long enough.
But that is where we need to convince the interviewer we are fit for any domain. Domain doesn't matters much for testers.. It depends upon how we answer it.
we need to be sure that u make a note of skills which u r good at.. and explain the interviewer u r capable of handling any domain and automation is not based on domain specific. If it was then probably we would have a lot of domain-specific automation tools and products. We can mention, will automate any web based application.
u can even mention u have a knowledge of other domains as u worked as a freelancer. - if interviewer is more specific about domain.

4 Students meet in Wynisco bootcamp, become good friends and decide that once they get the job and settle down , they will do an all girls Vegas trip with their own money .
Totally movie material.
I can only imagine how satisfying that might be. Remember that Pursuit of Happiness job offer scene.
( 4th one could not make it to Vegas due to personal reason )
Keep rocking and inspiring other women. You girls are setting the right precedent for everyone else.

This really inspires us to work harder for our students and help them achieve their goals.

Wynisco has made QA Testing fundamental public. We started this fundamental course for students who were waiting for new cohort to start. It helped jumpstart their studies
Back to Blog
Many students really want to become QA Analyst also sometimes called Software tester , automation engineer , SDET ( Software Engineering in Test ) but they lack skill and most importantly self belief that they can do it .
They have seen their friends do it and they try to copy what their friends did ?
No it does not work ? Why ?
Wynisco specializes in QA testing with amazing instructors , More than course what really helps are other things
These are all the ingredients that go into getting a successful QA job
Lets take a classic case of Guddi , She wanted to badly get into QA but she has full family duties and a full time job as Customer Service Representative, Also she has never worked in IT and has no idea what IT is.
These are special cases that needs to be dealt with one on one which Wynisco specializes.
Wynisco is happy to share that Guddi was able to get full time QA analyst / Software testing job without any previous experience or background
Wynisco helped her all the way from bootcamp to placement .
Congrats Guddi you made yourself and Wynisco proud

Simple check for F1 and H1 Students to see if they can travel outside US based on their current status.
Right now its clumsy but its work in progress.
Do let me know any enhancement or suggestions to improve its usability /functionality.
