Introduction to Manual testing
Generally, people think of Software testing as assuring quality products by identifying and preventing bugs in a software program. However, i think its much bigger than that, i consider software testing the gateway to innovation, collaboration, outside the box thinkers, performance and accountability.Yemi Akisanya
QA 101: Introduction to Manual Testing (64 hours)
This course is designed with the novice tester in mind. Whether you’re completely new to software development or have experience in other areas of software development and are now considering a move into the testing field, the materials are intended to give you a basic understanding of the software testing process and insight into your role and responsibilities as a professional software tester.
We’ll cover basic SDLC (Software Development Lifecycle Development) methodologies, both traditional, so-called “waterfall” projects as well as the more recent “Agile” style of development. Although you are not studying to become a developer, understanding the software design and creation process will improve your skills and effectiveness as a tester.
After an overview of the development process, we’ll cover basic software testing techniques, most of which will be viewed from the perspective of someone who uses a Graphical User Interface (GUI), which is a technical software development term for the web page display that you normally use when interacting with any software program.
The course is comprised of an overview of development and testing techniques followed by hands-on exercises designed to reinforce an understanding of the materials.
Upon successful completion, you will have the knowledge and the hands-on experience that will enable you to confidently and thoroughly test a software application through a user interface.
Starts on soon, classes will be held at our downtown location and an Online Lab on Saturdays at 9 am – 11 am.
Tony began his software career in the mid-1970s designing, coding, and testing mainframe software applications. Over time, he migrated from design and development to software support and training. Eventually, he landed in Quality Assurance, first as a tester and analyst, and then finally as a manager.
Through all those career transitions, there was one constant: the desire to mentor and teach others in the art and technique of Software Quality Assurance. Tony believes that you need a “why” for any worthwhile endeavor. The “why” is your mission. He likes to instill this sense of mission and pride in each student as part of basic software testing training. A clear, inspirational picture of your mission + solid foundational training in the skill of software testing = a rewarding, successful career. That’s Tony’s teaching formula and philosophy
