8 Week Part-Time Course

Automation is changing the way we work and build products. Master Python for test automation and add invaluable skills to your resume!

Python is the most popular programming language for test automation. This class teaches you how to write programs in Python to automate test cases when assessing hardware devices. We will learn on the Raspberry Pi platform, which emulates the technology many QA Engineers work with on a daily basis. An overview of the architecture and building blocks of a sample test automation system based on the real-world industry standard will also be studied. This test system supports a simple web-based user interface. Your understanding of lecture materials will be enforced by completing programming homework assignments.


Audience

This course is designed for people who want to move into the software field. Test Automation skills will provide people who are working in other areas of hi-tech such as hardware or customer support an easy entry point into QA software engineering positions. This course is for them because they learn industry testing methodologies AND how to automate their test executions. Python is also relatively easy to learn and widely used for test automation.

Current QA software engineers can also enhance their skills as employers require them to automate their test executions for improved productivity and consistency of results. Many companies place a premium on automation skills.
