What You'll Learn

Git & Github

Git, the de facto standard for source version control and team collaboration, has its own jargon, best practices, and workflows, enough to keep you busy for a while. Yet these tactics will be crucial in your contribution in the workplace and in securing, protecting and archiving code.

Javascript

Developers love QA engineers who know their way around code. In this course, we will not dive as deep into JS as the immersive Web Developer course, but we’ll teach you enough to be a treasured asset to your developers.

Test Writing

Software testing trainings are an important part of quality assurance certification. We’ll start you off with the basics – manual test writing. You’ll learn all about the various tests you can use to test for — and expose — application weaknesses.

Unit Testing

The next part of our software testing trainings is unit testing. Unit testing just means testing small units of a larger application as they are developed. This can help you find bugs faster. This course will teach you how to create and run effective unit tests.

Test Automation

Throughout the course of your software testing trainings, you will also learn how to create automated tests using Selenium and Protractor. These are two of the most common testing automation applications out there, and as such, essential for a quality assurance certification.

Load Testing

Sometimes called stress testing, this kind of software testing training allows you to assess how an application behaves when placed under different levels of demand. This course will teach you about stress testing concepts and tools.

API Testing

As you get your quality assurance certification at DevMountain, we’ll teach you what a REST API is and how to create automated tests of performance, functionality, reliability, safety and security using Postman and SOAP.

Agile Methodology

Part of being an effective QA engineer is knowing how applications are developed. Agile is one of the most common development cycle methodologies. We’ll teach you all about backlogs, scrums, and sprints and how testing fits into the software development cycle.

Student Projects

DevMountain cares about giving our graduates the best possible chance to succeed beyond the bootcamp. To get a quality assurance certification — one that has real value in the world of work — it is important to have concrete experience to draw on, and to show to potential employers. One of the most unique things about this course is that we’ve worked with corporations to have our QA students work on actual software applications. Our QA training and placement program prepares our students with meaningful real-world know-how, hands on experience working with a development team, and a chance to sharpen their skills.

Curriculum is only as good as the people behind it.

DevMountain's expert instructors are passionate about sharing their craft and empowering the next wave of programmers, entrepreneurs, and designers.
