About this Course
Learn how to become an effective test engineer. Testing is something every developer must do to write effective and quality code, but going about what you should test and how to do it can be a challenging question. Quality Assurance is the practice of monitoring other developers' work and creating processes and tests that will ensure the product meets the end user’s expectations and limiting the amount of bugs that are released. This course will teach you how to become a Software Quality Assurance Engineer.
What you'll learn
- Why test?

Why We Test
In this stage we’ll learn why testing is important and the basic QA Process as well as some definitions that we’ll want to know in later stages.
Writing Manual Test Cases
In this stage, we are going to be getting into the real work of testing by writing out manual test cases. In addition to simply testing what the developer has done, manual test cases can also provide useful documentation for people learning how to code for the software.
This stage will focus on how to go about planning and executing tests so that you and your company will be confident delivering this software.
One thing we hear about often as developers and testers alike are “defects” or, more commonly, “bugs” in the software. In this stage we will discuss bugs and how to write an effective bug report.
Improving Quality Assurance Practices
In this stage, we will discuss how to become a better QA Engineer and how to go beyond the basics of writing test cases and reporting bugs.
