Software Testing: The Next Generation Course

Contact us for Pricing



From traditional testers to software development engineers in test (SDETs) to programmers doing unit testing, everybody in the development team is doing testing now. You’re probably spending lots of time and energy on testing, but are you getting the benefits you should? In this class, you learn the techniques that will allow you to create tests that will find important bugs when you develop new code, reduce regression risk when you change existing code, and build confidence when you deliver software. This class will allow you to defy conventional wisdom. Why move fast and break stuff when you can move even faster and not break stuff? Why release early and be ashamed of your first version when you can release even earlier and be proud of it? In three days, you’ll learn the essential test techniques that will set you and your products apart from the crowd. 

The objectives of this course are:

  • Design and develop tests based on expected behavior (black box), using techniques including:
    • Equivalence classes and boundary value analysis

    • Test-driven development
    • Behavior-driven development
    • Acceptance test-driven development
