Course Description

With the ability to automate tests and improve the efficiency of the software development lifecycle, continuous testing environments have created a foundation for better products. The automated and continuous testing process allows organizations to constantly improve the quality of their software by testing more frequently, testing faster, and resolving bugs at an earlier stage. In this course, we will start by taking a closer look at who is involved in the test automation and continuous testing process within a DevOps team structure in order to gain a better understanding of why this testing process is currently only available to software development organizations through DevOps.

In this course, we will also look at how the use of test automation in a continuous testing process has aided major tech companies in terms of maintaining, improving, and expanding their products or services. Curated trainings for three popular test automation tools will provide you with the foundational knowledge needed to utilize these tools in the field, determine which tools are best for specific organizations or projects, and apply your new knowledge to authentic scenarios such as walking through stages of a continuous testing process, researching tools for automation, and selecting the right tool and framework based on an organization’s needs.
