Most agile teams deliver shippable software at the end of each sprint, but some agile teams ship working software every day. Confidence at this speed can be achieved with the help of automated tests. Explore the many ways automation supports agile testing activities in this introductory course.
Learn about automation techniques to improve regression testing, story and feature testing, and continuous integration. Test automation purpose, theory, and principles are reviewed, as well as how test automation is implemented in diverse organizations.
This course provides real-world, vendor-neutral examples of agile test automation approaches and tools. Examples of automated tests for Test Driven Development (TDD), Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD), and Behavior Driven Development (BDD) will be given, in addition to example test descriptions, source code samples, and example test scripts.
