Course Summary

If you’ve been writing test scripts, you’ve already started down the path of test automation but why stop there? In this course, we will cover best practices in writing test scripts built to be orchestrated in an automated pipeline. We will cover multiple Continuous Integration tools available to help make this a reality. We’ll make use of multiple Version Control Management tools. And we’ll make heavy use of Taurus.

In this course, we will:

  • Explain WHY do we Automate Tests, and how do we get started?
  • From the Perspective of a Tester, we will get familiar with the tools of Automation and explore how they can help us.
  • Introduce what is Version Control, why it is important, and how we incorporate it into the testing aspect of the SDLC.
  • Show you the different test types that you should consider automating.
