Description

What you’ll learn

  • Everything you need to know about automated software testing with Python (and how to enjoy testing, too!)
  • Common pitfalls and best practices when writing automated tests
  • How to write complete system tests using Python and tools like Postman
  • Automate your application testing by setting up a continuous integration pipeline using Travis CI
  • Browser-based acceptance testing using Behave and Selenium WebDriver

Welcome to the most comprehensive course on Automated Software Testing with Python on Udemy.

Testing automation doesn’t have to be painful. Software testing is an essential skill for any developer, and I’m here to help you truly understand all types of test automation with Python.

I’m Jose, a software engineer and founder of Teclado. The focus of this course is on testing for the web—we’ll be working with REST APIs and web applications, and technologies such as unittest, Postman, and Selenium WebDriver.

Fear not though, after going through this course, you’ll be able to take your new testing knowledge and apply it to any project, even non-web projects!

What will you work with?

This course is jam-packed with all the latest technologies for you to use professionally and in personal projects:

  • The unittest library, Python’s standard automated software testing library;

  • Mocking and patching, two essential tools to reduce dependencies when testing;

  • unit, integration, system, and acceptance testing—all types of testing to have you fully covered;

  • Postman for easy collaboration and testing while developing;

  • Selenium WebDriver for automated browser tests;

  • Git and Travis for continuous integration of your project.

Fundamental Software Testing Skills

We will cover every fundamental software testing skill that you need to know in order to get a job testing or to apply these skills in your existing projects.

From things like mocking and patching using the unittest library, which reduce dependencies and turn complex tests to simple ones; to looking at all types of testing: simple unit tests to large system tests and even customer acceptance tests.

The Testing Pyramid

The Testing Pyramid says you should have a lot of unit tests, slightly fewer integration tests, even fewer system tests, and as few acceptance tests as possible.

Throughout the course we work on this concept, making sure that we have full coverage of every component of our system with unit tests. Then we test the dependencies using integration tests. Finally, we cover the entire system and its assumptions using system tests. Of course, we’ll also look at what acceptance testing is, how we come up with acceptance tests, and some of the best ways to write acceptance tests for a web application using Behavior-Driven Development and Selenium WebDriver.

Automated Browser Testing with Selenium WebDriver

Selenium WebDriver is extremely powerful, particularly when coupled with the efficient and tried-and-tested approach recommended in this course. We’ll design our acceptance tests professionally—just the way you’d do at a software testing job. We’ll use page models, locators, and step definitions to structure the automated tests in a reusable way. The customers will be able to come up with acceptance tests that you can easily translate to code.

We’ll also learn about implicit and explicit waits with Selenium WebDriver and Python, a key concept to speed up the runtime of your acceptance tests.

Continuous Integration

We also cover how you can take automated testing much further in your projects.

By implementing a Continuous Integration pipeline that runs your tests whenever you make any changes, you’ll have much higher quality in your projects and not let any pesky bugs pass you by. We’ll look at putting our projects in GitHub and liking the CI pipeline with them.

I’m really excited to guide you through this course!

Join me in this automated testing journey. I‘ll see you on the inside!

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

  3. Jiaqing Fan

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.

    Cheers.

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
