Technical Web Testing 101
What you'll learn
- Understand HTTP Proxy Basics
- Why should testers use HTTP Proxies
- Learn to use Modern Browser Functionality for testing
- A computer capable of accessing the internet
- A desire to become more technical
This course will help you perform more technical testing.
It will introduce you to the basic concepts and tools you need to help you take the next step in your testing evolution.
We need to test more technically in order to find more deeply hidden bugs. To investigate architectural risk. To improve our understanding of the applications we test.
This course will pull together introductory information for a range of topics related to the technical web domain.
Technical means a technical understanding of the platform you are testing and how to use it in your testing. For the web this means understanding how to use the browser to support your testing, the features of the browser that can help, gaining confidence in exploring and using the tooling yourself so you can continue to learn as the browser adds new features. Additionally an understanding of what happens under the covers with HTTP messages, including how to view and amend them.
This course opens up the world of web testing at a technical level such that everyone can take advantage of the powerful tools built in to modern browsers.
Who this course is for:
- Software Testing Professionals of any experience level
