Think about some of worst failures like Titanic and Challenger. Think about software glitches that caused failures of Ariane 5, banking, air traffic, missiles etc. It is important to understand why it happened and how such things can impact us and cause havoc and immense loss and damage. How it can be prevented by us in future to achieve successful endeavors. Given this, build the context for us for further learning and innovation. As software is getting in each every walk of our life and all human endeavors, it becomes so critical that they do not fail and perform well. This course will help build the context for further learning in software testing. Based on this context and software testing basics, you can get started with another next course, "Software Testing Course", from me at Udemy.
This course is for around one and half hours and has 7 video lectures on software testing basics. You can complete this course in one go or take one lecture per day and can complete learning the software testing basics within a week. If you have any queries while you are covering different lectures, then, do feel free to write them to me through the 'questions' section and I will periodically answer back. Get started with the software testing basics today.</p>
|This lecture will welcome you to this course and give a brief introduction to this course and to the course instructor|
|Context is the most powerful driver in whatever we do. Therefore, it is very important to create a powerful context for learning about testing as well. We will try to understand what is context and why we need to create it and open up pathway for you set context for yourself for software testing.|
|Lets start to look into some of the non-software failures and what is the key takeaway for us related to understanding context. We will look into Titanic and Challenger failures.|
|Lets start to look into some of the software failures and what is the key takeaway for us related to understanding context. We will look into Ariane5, RBS and Amazon failures.|
|In this lecture, having gone through the failures in previous sessions and its impact as the background to help you build your own context to move ahead in software testing. Also, realize the importance of effective software testing as a critical element to prevent failures and how going further context and skill contribute to it.|
|Lets get introduced to some basics of practical software testing. We will look into: Requirements Testcases.|
|We will continue with some more basics of practical software testing. We will look into: Buids, TestExecution, TestResults, Bugs, Automation and Innovation|
|The concept of Team "One" in Agile team and the importance of being cross functional.|
|We will look into some general information, studies about cost of software bugs and future of software testing and software testers.|
