Selenium (for Java) - Dec. 6 & 7 | $1300, Early bird $1100 by Nov. 25 | $50 TCQAA discount
The consumer is putting increasing demand on companies to deliver their applications across many devices, browsers and platforms; with Increasing pressure being put on Test Tool budgets IT professionals are looking to the Open Source market for their test tools.
Selenium 2.0 allows both developers and testers to automate tests against their application and execute them against multiple browsers. This course will focus on providing a solid foundation to the tester in understanding Selenium 2.0 tests.
In so many courses, the drive is only to teach what the tool is capable of doing, but not necessarily focusing on the practical steps required to make it work in the real world. By providing a hands-on walkthrough, students will be able to understand what goes into making Selenium function in the real world.
Hot Topics in Testing - Dec. 8 | $650, Early bird $600 by Nov. 25 | $25 TCQAA discount
Agile principles and methodologies such as Scrum, Kanban, Test Driven Development (TDD), Behavior Driven Development (BDD), and others have become widely adopted. The associated functions and deliverables for quality assurance and testing are dramatically different from those used in waterfall. Our expert instructor will clarify the events, artifacts, roles, and types of tests associated with these new models for creating software products and systems. The course also covers how to conduct effective acceptance testing as well as retrospectives. Exercises including a Scrum simulation and an acceptance testing simulation, will help participants apply these approaches in the xreal-world.
Risk Based Testing - Dec. 9 | $650, Early bird $600 by Nov. 25 | $25 TCQAA discount
For many years, the term “risk-based testing” has been used within the IT industry. Risk-based testing is defined as “an approach to testing to reduce the level of product risks and inform stakeholders of their status, starting in the initial stages of a project. It involves the identification of product risks and the use of risk levels to guide the test process” [ISTQB Glossary V 2.2]
The problem, however, is many people have little understanding of how to implement the process of risk-based testing to match the ideal of the definition. This workshop introduces people to the definition of risk-based testing in terms of the relationship between risk, the management of risk and testing.
