Our Curriculum: The processes and expectations for Test Automation and White Box Testing have undergone significant transformation. Our course is based on the new standards for web testing: robust, scalable, and trackable. You’ll build test scripts using Java, Flash, UI, DataDriven, and more. You’ll learn the same testing practices and tools that you’ll use on the job, like Ant and Maven. Following are some of the tools we’ll teach you to use:
Detailed Schedule: SQA Solution classes run from 6pm to 10pm, 3 evenings a week, and 9am to 6pm on Saturdays. Classes vary between structured intros to exercises or projects and full day Testathons. During a Testathon, you may finish the previous day’s projects, or test and code a new project or exercise. Following is how a structured day will look:
- Saturday only, 9am: Breakfast. We’ll discuss technology and testing over breakfast in the classroom.
- Saturday 9:30am or Weekday at 6pm: Coding with our Instructors. We’ll introduce your next project or exercise. We’ll explain the concepts of how to perform the work, and then we’ll discuss how to work out the stuff you don’t already know. We want you to participate by asking questions—that’s how you’ll learn best.
- Saturday at 10am or Weekday at 6:30pm: Hack and Test. You’ll be working either in pairs or small teams on real-life projects. If you have questions, just ask an instructor and they’ll be happy to help get you resolve them by offering different approaches for resolution.
- Saturday only, 12pm: Lunch. There are many great places for lunch within walking distance.
- Saturday at 1pm or Weekday at 7:30pm: Learn, Code, Test. Again, we’ll introduce you to new concepts by starting a brand new exercise or project together, and then allowing you to continue working on it within your team.
- Tuesday only, 6:30pm: Special Events. We hold different types of events. You can ask our guest instructors about their job experiences, go to meetups, practice interviewing, or just work on projects. The program ends at 8 p.m. However, you may want to continue working much later.
- Weeks 1 – 2 include teaching the basics of Test Automation and programming.
- Weeks 3 – 6 focus on project-oriented learning, both in groups and individually. This covers working on new projects from scratch and working on existing codebases. During this time, you’ll be creating your portfolio.
