Objectives :

Many organisations would like to automate some or all of their software testing tasks. However, uncertainty about where to start and the high cost of proprietary testing tools often holds them back.
This course provides an opportunity to get to grips with test automation by combining an in-depth discussion of automation concepts with practical demonstrations of test automation tools and frameworks. The demonstrations are all based on fully featured open source and "freeware" tools. Which means that participants can download and experiment with the tools after the course.
This ensures that when the time comes to evaluate and select a test automation tools and frameworks, participants will be well prepared with a detailed understanding of the role of automation tools, as well as their inherent strengths and weaknesses.
The course commences with a brief review of software testing concepts and then moves on to discuss the business case for test automation. This is followed by an in-depth discussion of test automation frameworks and strategies. The remainder of the course is organised into topics that cover code based testing; API testing and testing through the user interface (UI).

Course Features

  • Designed to develop participant's skills as a test automation specialist
  • Based on a unique conceptual test automation framework that is used throughout the course to compare and contrast test automation frameworks, tools and concepts
  • Cleraly identifies and explains different categories of test automation frameworks and tools
  • Provides a practical demonstration of a typical frameworks and tools in each category
Who Should Attend :
  • Those who want develop their careers as test automation specialists such as Test Engineers, Test Analysts, Software Engineers, Software Developers, and Quality Assurance Staff
  • Those who need to develop test automation strategies, select test automation frameworks and manage test automation staff such as Test Managers, Software Development Managers, Process Engineers, Software Engineering Process Group (SEPG) Staff, Methodologists, Process Improvement Staff,
  • Those who who want to gain an understanding of test automation such as Test Engineers, Test Analysts, Software Engineers, Software Developers, Quality Assurance Staff, Test Managers, Software Development Managers, Requirements Engineers, Requirements Analysts, Process Engineers, Software Engineering Process Group (SEPG) Staff, Methodologists, Process Improvement Staff
Benefits :
  • Presents an in-depth perspective of test automation for those wanting to develop their careers as test automation specialists.
  • Encourages the development of a test automation strategy strategy prior to acquiring test automation frameworks and tools
  • Identifies the strengths and weaknesses of test automation for who need to develop test automation strategies, select test automation frameworks and manage test automation staff
  • The course structure provides a logical framework for those who who want to gain an understanding of test automation
  • Provides a sound basis for further exploration of test automation frameworks and tools after the course
