This course provides the foundation for developing and using theory based practice in Software Testing (“manual” environment). This detailed, practical, intensive workshop-style course will enable attendees to
- Understand the core concepts and principles of testing;
- How to effectively derive effective and reliable test cases;
- Comprehend test planning, execution, results and follow-up processes;
- Learn about writing and tracking effective defect reports to get problems solved; manage the test environment; define major black-box test techniques.
Upon completion, the student should understand basic software testing tasks and methodologies sufficiently to contribute meaningfully to the software testing effort within a software development organization. This course is for anyone currently involved in testing or about to move into a testing role. Many of the course tasks were designed to be realistic or impressive (to an employer) and to give you a chance to do professional-quality work that you can show off during a job interview. Finally, the work that you do in this course might help you land a job.
