In today´s fast-moving world, it is a challenge for any company to continuously maintain and improve the quality and efficiency of software systems development. Test automation can improve the development process of a software product in many cases. The test automation is initially associated with increased effort, but the related benefits will quickly pay off.
Everyone can quickly learn and start writing automated tests, however, creating successful automation requires much deeper knowledge and experience. If our automation is poorly designed, it will cost us much more than the benefits it will bring us. Most people spend most of their time maintaining and fixing red tests rather than covering the newly developed features. Also, for engineers that are just starting their career is always a challenge to start automation of the testing from scratch for a new project.
The course will cover all of these problems, using some of the most popular frameworks and tools available on the market. It will be almost entirely practical with only enough theory so that the participants can perceive the explained concepts or frameworks.
During the course, it will be designed and implemented test automation harness from scratch for a given web application. It will be explained the motivations, best practices and pattern behind the given solution.
