  • Implement easily maintainable automated REST API tests (requests)
  • Create web and mobile automated tests (Selenium Webdriver)
  • Understand the value of good practices for API and UI testing
  • Find out what the standards for Gherkin are and how to write step definition code
  • Apply readable livinGherkin specifications with Cucumber and step definition code
  • Run basic scenario for real examples (football scores API + Python & behave)
  • Define your own test exceptions

The course is dedicated to people having basic hands-on experience in Python programming, ie. if you know how to use variables, write methods, use classes and are familiar with concepts such as inheritance, encapsulation, abstraction, etc. - you’re good to go (if not, don’t worry - we have a course for you here!). Many groups can benefit from the course, especially:
  • Software Testers looking for an easy way to automate tests
  • Software Developers interested in test automation
  • People responsible for the quality of software products - Product Owners, DevOps, Programmers, Consultants, Support Specialists, etc.
