Course Overview

Our Quality Engineering training will prepare you to understand, analyze and troubleshoot business and technical requirements using leading open source tools and methodologies to automate testing and to deliver value on web applications and mobile apps.

This is not another programming course; here you will be exposed from day 1 to Agile and Scrum Methodologies using planning tools and business cases to understand process maturity and software life cycles; gather meaningful requirements, decomposing problems to use case and sequence diagrams, and mind mapping tools to guide your story telling according to team needs.

Test Driven (TDD), Behavior (BDD) and Acceptance Test Development (ATDD) is essential to understanding Case Writing (Given, Then, When & And), mixing software tools and years of experience from our seasoned instructors.

Additionally, Java Core and Script creation/maintenance are key topics in this 9-week intensive program: expect intensive Computational Thinking (breaking problems into small pieces, find similarities, creating one solution to multiple problems, and workflow design to finish a task). Databases knowledge is essential, so MySQL and Microsoft SQL will be learned and tested as well.

We then move to Selenium, a wonderful open source tool for web application testing. Finally, we connect all course components through frameworks for Logging, Reporting, Model Controllers, Continuous Integration and Defect Management Tools.

By the end of the class you will demonstrate that you can write and present test cases from the customer perspective (something that anybody can understand) and can easily integrate your knowledge into a collaborative environment full of programmers and business people.

If you succeed in obtaining technical knowledge, we will fast forward you to our Career Advancement team who will prepare you to explore career opportunities with our employer partners.
