Automated Software Testing: Practical Skills for Java Developers
Date: On request
Category: Quality Assurance /Control
Software testing gets a bad rap for being difficult, time-consuming, redundant, and above all - boring. But in fact, it is a proven way to ensure that your software will work flawlessly and can meet release schedules.
In a two-course series, we will teach you automated software testing in an inspiring way. We will show you that testing is not as daunting a task as you might think, and how automated testing will make you a better developer who programs excellent software.
This first course will teach you how to master software testing and software quality assurance using JUnit. Key topics of the first course will include unit testing, test adequacy and code coverage, mock objects, design for testability, and test code quality.
This is a highly practical course. Throughout the lessons, you will test various programs by means of different techniques. By the end, you will be able to choose the best testing strategies for different projects.
If you are or want to become a five-star software developer, QA engineer, or software tester, join this course. Testing will never be the same again!
