Description

This course was created and designed to teach JavaScript fundamentals from the beginning, for beginners.

I will be walking you through the basic features of JavaScript and bring you to a point where you will be confident to call yourself a JavaScript developer.


Not just for QA Engineers!

I have designed this course with QA Engineers as the main audience. But all the lessons and lectures apply for anyone wanting to learn JavaScript.


QA Engineers

I am going to teach you and focus in on all the parts of JavaScript that are important for a QA to successfully transition into an SDET.

You will be ready to use test automation frameworks that use JavaScript like Protractor, WebDriverIO, or Nightwatch JS.


We will go over what a coding interview will look like and we will walk through some sample exercises.

You will end the course with a final project where you will create a utility app to provide data that you can use in your testing in the future.


What you will be learning:

  • The basics: variables, if statements, loops, arrays, functions, and objects

  • How to run your code in the browser console

  • How to work with JSON data

  • How to hook your code up to a web application

  • How to manipulate the DOM

  • How to enforce coding standards with Linting

  • How to test your code with unit testing


How I teach:

I don't believe in giving a lot of lectures where I just talk and you listen. So you are not going to have any lectures on the "history of JavaScript".

I want you to always be coding.

The lessons are quick and to the point. You will follow my lectures through examples and have opportunities to practice what I taught.

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone new to coding with a desire to learn JavaScript
  • QA engineers wanting to learn coding for test automation
