Cognizant Softvision Announces 3 Webinars to Introduce Students to the Tech World | March-April 2021

Cognizant Softvision is organizing three webinars focusing on Quality Assurance and DevOps presented by three lead Softvisioners.

Listen & Share Series was born out of our desire to introduce students to the tech world and help them explore the challenging and fascinating field of programming and testing. 

The first webinars started in 2020, when we officially launched our Listen & Share Series for students in Romania.

Day 1: Performance Testing – A beginner’s guide

The speaker of the first webinar will be Constantin Popa, QC Engineer, from our Iasi Studio, who will present Performance Testing – A beginner’s guide on March 30, starting at 6:00 PM EET. Constantin says that his talk  is meant “for the people interested in starting the performance testing chapter in their professional life.”

Constantin Popa is a passionate QA with a continuous drive for self-improvement and quality. With 4+ years of experience in the testing domain, he has a background in automation, performance, and manual testing.

When: March 30, 6:00 PM EET

Day 2: “It was working on my laptop, I swear!” – a Docker story 

The speaker of the second webinar will be Radu Mazilu, the DevOps Community Lead from our Bucharest Studio. He will be presenting “It was working on my laptop, I swear!” – a Docker story on April 13, starting at 6:00 PM EET. According to Radu, “We’ve all been through this issue: the project is finished, everything works perfectly, you send it and it crashes and burns in another environment. Docker allows you to control the environment where your project runs. In that way, you send the code, and the laptop!”

Radu Mazilu is a DevOps Engineer with more than eight years of experience. He likes to improve projects, processes and, last but not least, himself. He likes working smart, or as he puts it, convincing a computer to do his job. That’s why he’s a DevOps engineer.

When: April 13, 6:00 PM EET

Day 3: Developer vs QA Engineer. What’s the difference?

The speaker of the third webinar will be Mihai Alexandru Dobreanu, QC Engineer, from our Iasi Studio, who will talk about Developer vs QA Engineer. What’s the difference? on April 27, starting at 6:00 PM EET. Mihai intends his talk to be a “short introduction into what the QA engineer job is all about compared to what the developer job is all about.”

Starting a professional career looking for bugs only seemed natural to Mihai, who was doing it for fun before that. He is a highly motivated QA engineer that might ‘put the brake’ into your code, but will also put in the time to help you find a solution. Over the years he has meddled all over the SDLC into related areas like business analysis, product ownership, development, or DevOps.
