Build Solid Test Automation the Right Way
One of the tenets of being successful in test automation is to build solid engineering practices at the beginning; and this course is designed to help you do just that. The Fundamentals of Test Automation course covers everything from introducing the basics of test automation - including definitions, benefits and misconceptions, to planning for automation in an agile environment. Along the way we’ll explain the various automation test types and techniques including UI, API, Database, Unit, and Functional vs Non-Functional testing. You’ll also learn how to select the right approaches to best suit the needs of your organization..
Using a hands-on approach, our experienced instructors will illustrate proper techniques for building maintainable automated tests using frameworks. We will also cover Behavior-Driven Testing (BDD) using Cucumber.
This course also teaches you how to develop your own test automation strategy and get the most out of your tests, as well as integrating them into a continuous integration (CI) process.
Who Should Attend
This course is ideal for those in developer and testing roles who need to learn automation or improve their existing automation knowledge. The course features hands on exercises to illustrate the topics discussed and provides students an opportunity to learn by doing. A working laptop with proper administrative privileges is required for this class.
This class involves hands-on activities using sample software to better facilitate learning. Each student should bring a laptop with a remote desktop protocol (RDP) client preinstalled. Connection specifics and credentials will be supplied during class. Please verify permissions with your IT Admin before class. If you or your Admin have questions about the specific applications involved, contact our Client Support team.
