Testing is a critical role in software development that requires special skills and knowledge that are not commonly taught to software developers, business analysts and project managers. This often results in insufficient time and resources being allocated for this important function, and quality suffers—as do the users of the software. Equally important is the need to measure quality quickly and efficiently because limitations in resources and schedules are realities that aren’t going away. We need to do the best we can with what we have and still deliver high, proven-quality software.

Fundamentals of Software Testing provides an eye-opening view into this challenging task. It provides a complete picture of the testing process, how it fits into the development life cycle, how to properly scope and prioritize testing activities, and what techniques to use for optimal results. This software testing training begins with a deep-dive into the Universal Testing Method, follows with a close look at testing phases, testing approaches, non-functional testing, and testing for different platforms. If time permits, the Course finishes up with some bonus material covering an introduction to automation testing and behavior-driven development.
