Enhance the potential, reliability, and maintainability of your automated test scripts

Do you have a bunch of test scripts that break down whenever you look at them? Is adding new test scripts a chore? Is introducing changes to your test code painful, dangerous, and potentially showstopping? If you answered “Yes” to at least one of these, you’re in sore need of building a test framework. In this video course, you will be trained to develop frameworks efficiently. You will learn how to structure your framework so that it remains maintainable and avoid collecting the unnecessary technical debt. You will learn to pay attention to the important aspects of framework development, and master quite a few important software design principles that will remain applicable throughout most roles in the IT industry. By the end of the course, you’ll have developed an efficient test framework that will make test implementation and maintenance a breeze and will have learned to use supplementary tools and libraries to enhance the usefulness of Selenium WebDriver.

This course provides step-by-step instructions. Its videos are broken down into several stages. Concepts are taught using practical examples. Finally, the code listing provided in the example is broken down into smaller topics and thoroughly explained.
