Python for testers

Are you a tester working in a Python environment? Solid automation training is more than just teaching people to perform tricks with tools. In my courses, I will not only teach you how you can wield a specific tool or technique to achieve a predefined goal, but also why you should or should not apply it in the first place, and what situations are suitable for applying which tools and techniques.

Description

Are you a tester working in a Python environment?

Solid automation training is more than just teaching people to perform tricks with tools. In my courses, I will not only teach you how you can wield a specific tool or technique to achieve a predefined goal, but also:

  •  why you should or should not apply it in the first place, and
  • what situations are suitable for applying which tools and techniques.

Only by also covering the why and the what, you can answer the how in a way that yields maximum value.

Do you specifically want to learn how to work with and contribute to automated tests written in Python? Then the ‘Python for testers’ course is just for you!
