Our Introduction To Test Automation Workshop training course covers the following Modules:

Module: Introduction to test automation

When automation is appropriate and when it’s not for:

  • Test driven development and continuous integration 
  • System testing 
  • Automated regression testing and selecting tests for automation
  • User Acceptance Test 
  • Creating test data
  • Selecting the tests that are best suited to automation  

Module 2: Factors that influence the return on investment when automating

  • Cost of tools versus ease of use 
  • Skills required to use the tools 
  • Cost of developing the automating tests
  • Cost of maintaining the tests 
  • How often the tests will be executed 

Module 3: How to select the most appropriate tool or tools for a project. 

Overview of some of the automation tools that are available 

Practical demonstrations: 

  • Katalon Recorder & Selenium IDE – simple record and replay tools 
  • Selenium Webdriver – scripted browser tests 
  • Hands-on practical session using Katalon Recorder record and replay
