Automation has both increased and decreased complications in our lives.
I have been a Software QA tester for past 10 years now and have done well for myself. But the expectations of technical skill sets required for a QA are rising like anything.
I wish to change my job and to crack any interview these days, I need to spend weeks to practice and understand new technologies. At the moment I am a bit confused about being a QA Tester all my life or to get into UX as I am a creative person and I find UX very exciting, having discovered it recently.
So, I am running a few experiments too as I like being creative. I decorated my home myself. I loved the process of selecting colors, furniture, paintings, etc. and loved how soothing it was.
Personally, I think it’s important for me to do what I love rather than regretting my choice everyday. I just can’t imagine myself retiring as a coder, but a UX designer, well, that’s something else! And then, everyone needs a good UX designer, don’t they? 🙂
