About the course

Most companies develop software using agile methodologies, enabling teams to work fast to deliver value. To ensure the product meets the requirements of each iteration, the team runs tests, designing them for automation where possible.

In this course, we'll explore the role of testing and quality assurance in the software development life cycle with an emphasis in agile development. We'll look into what it's like to work in the software development industry, explore common practices, and learn the methods used for software quality assurance. You'll practice working on test designs and using automation by completing realistic exercises and projects with popular software testing tools. At the end of this course, you'll be able to design, implement and execute tests, and track product quality.
