Course Curriculum

While you’re at our Software QA Immersive Course, you’ll have weeks full of interactive learning and networking. You’ll walk away with the ability and confidence you need to land a QA job. You’ll master the following concepts:

Github

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

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.

Testing

Test Writing

Creating tests is an integral part of quality assurance*. We'll start you off with the basics - manual test writing. You'll learn all about the various *techniques you can use to expose application weaknesses.

Unit Testing

Unit Testing

You will also learn how to test software through unit testing*. Unit testing just means testing small units of a larger application as they are developed *which can help find bugs faster. This course will provide you with software test training and will teach you how to create and run effective unit tests.

Test Automation

Test Automation

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

Load Testing

Load Testing

Sometimes called stress testing, this kind of QA 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 that will help you be a successful quality assurance software tester.

API Testing

API Testing

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

Agile Methodology

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.
