Being a computer science student i chose to go for web development, i learned basics of it and started working. In past six months i had worked with an IT startup where i worked on products using latest web technologies (NODE REACT MONGO BOOTSTRAP). Now i got a college placement to one of the renowned and established testing company using these skills as they also have a developer wing. But now they are putting me into automation test engineering and assuring me that if they required any specific skill for any product they will transfer me to that. Now i am not sure to it and either if i should go for automation testing engineering or i should drop it as i wanted to be developer?
I am a fresher but have a good self learning capabilities. Please help me regarding this as i am so much confused.
