The Test Automation Workshop


Maximize Your Automation Investment

Whether you are considering a solution or have one already established, this software testing training course will provide you with the critical tools, strategies, tactics and techniques to significantly increase the performance of your automated testing practice and maximize your return on investment. Automation is software  but it is also a tactical and strategic framework, and your requirements must directly support that framework. Knowing how to find the right software, understanding which framework matches your needs, and implementing them both correctly will enable you to achieve significant ROI  but it is much easier said than done.

From Conceptualization to Implementation.

This two-day software testing training course was developed as a detailed roadmap for successful test automation deployment. You will get a comprehensive examination of both commercial and open-source solutions and how they can be applied to both traditional applications and specialized testing initiatives. You will learn how to properly evaluate, implement and gain sustainable utilization for your system. You will get invaluable tips, tricks, and techniques for all stages  from conceptualization to implementation. Attendees will leave this software testing training class with developed documents that will provide a quick start when you return to the office.
