What are some things you learned at the company?

Since I started at Upgrade, I have been exposed to new technologies for test automation, infrastructure and code coverage, to name a few. I had some challenges in making our test framework more efficient and faster. This is another aspect of Upgrade that I love: there are always different projects to work on which means new learning opportunities.
