Course Summary

This course will help prepare you for automating your testing. Focus will be on using Taurus in the context of Jenkins (a Continuous Integration tool) leaning heavily on Github for Source Code Management, to get you running tests automatically whenever you build new code.

You will learn how to record basic functional and performance tests, transform manual test cases into more automation-friendly ones, or modularize tests for readability and scripting efficiency. You will also learn to understand the roles that Version Control and Continuous Integration tools play in test automation. We will show you how to integrate data into your scripts for more dynamic testing, create testing pipelines that will run on code changes, and scale your automated tests with BlazeMeter.






Eric Dapp is a performance engineering, test automation, and all-around continuous testing ninja, and is a member of BlazeMeter’s adoption team.
