Knowledge Is Power
Whether you are just thinking of automating testing, are right in the middle of it, or have already given up, this course is for you. Learn how to evaluate your application and implement a proven framework and automation strategy that reduces code, increases maintainability, and enables non-technical users. Take advantage of the latest test automation development tools to make your job easier and less risky while improving ROI.
A Proven Approach
This course is not about theory; it is a proven, practical, step-by-step approach that can be used with any application and any test tool. It explores how to work with developers to find out what you need and get what you want, and shows you how to organize your automation project to get results as fast as possible.
Who Should Attend?
This course is designed for anyone who is either planning to automate or is already involved. No technical skills or experience are required; all technical concepts will be explained. The course is tool and application neutral, but the concepts and examples are better suited to UI testing than services or APIs.
