Content and Overview

I designed this course from an email related Web UI automation project.

Starting from business requirements requested by QA Manager, I show you how to design the test framework and integrate state-of-the-art tools together to achieve the business requirements. I will walk you through the setup of these tools step by step.

Then as a QA Engineer, I will first manual test the test scenarios and write down the test steps. I will work with you together to turn these manual test steps into automated steps. Along the way, you will encounter challenges and solve them.

In addition to the original course, I added some lectures according to students' feedback, such test Android Native APK test and iOS Native APP test.

You will find this course very effective and helpful.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Learn how to design and build up test framework from scratch
  • Know how to use the essential tools used by professional QA Engineer
  • Over 25 lectures
  • Source Code included
Who is the target audience?
