Automation in Testing is hands-on automation training that gives you the skills to strategise, create, use and educate others about automation that supports your testing.
Automation is everywhere, it’s popularity and uptake has rocketed in recent years and it’s showing little sign of slowing down. So in order to be successful with automation, all you need to know how to code, right?
No. While knowing how to code is a great tool in your toolbelt, there is far more to automation than writing code. Beyond learning to code you need to be able to determine the answers to these questions:
- What tests you should create?
- What data your tests require?
- What layer in your application you should write them at?
- What language or framework to use?
- If your testability is good enough?
- If it’s helping you solve your testing problems?
- What value you are getting from automation?
Answering those questions is significantly harder than writing the code. Yet our industry is pushing people straight into code and bypassing the theory.
What you'll learn on this course
Automation in Testing aims to help you answer those questions by focusing on not just creating automation, but working out opportunities to use automation as well as advocate for good practises and uses of automation in your team.
We will take you on a real-life journey through a lifecycle of planning, creating, using and educating others in good automation practises that you can easily take and apply to your work and team. This is achieved by offering 3 days of attendee-led training that will have you and other attendees taking on the roles of specialists in automation tasked with automating a modern web application.
Throughout the course, Richard and Mark will offer their expert knowledge and share techniques and theory they use to succeed with automation whilst offering you the opportunity to explore the tools and ideas you want to learn.
