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:
QA is a complex subject, ranging from test documentation to automated testing. We will teach you QA basic theories, best practices, and how to apply them. This knowledge will prepare you to help develop products, champion users, and improve the software development process.
AGILE AND TEAMWORK
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 working with a team, backlogs, scrums, sprints, and how testing fits into the software development cycle.
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, and to handle automated testing.
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.
Throughout the course of your software testing trainings, you will also learn how to create automated tests using Selenium. This is the most common testing automation application out there and as such, is essential for an up and coming Software QA Engineer.
API, and database testing are becoming more and more in demand, so we strive to keep our students up to date with the best tools to succeed. We’ll teach you what a REST API is and how to create tests of performance, functionality, reliability, safety, and security using Postman and JMeter. These types of testing concepts and tools will help you become a successful quality assurance software tester. You will get some experience with simple database testing using SQL statements as well, the better to support your team’s products.
