This comprehensive course addresses testing in a DevOps environment and covers concepts such as the active use of test automation, testing earlier in the development cycle, and instilling testing skills in developers, quality assurance, security, and operational teams.
The course is relevant for every modern IT professional involved in defining or deploying a DevOps testing strategy for their organization, as test engineering is the backbone of DevOps and the primary key for successful DevOps pipeline to support digital transformation.
Actionable and exciting exercises will be used to apply the concepts covered in the course and sample documents, templates, tools, and techniques will be provided to leverage after the class.
Undeniably, testing is a vitally important component of any successful IT release. Without the knowledge of proper testing, software can - sometimes very publicly - fail, causing unnecessary downtime, loss of customer trust, and decreased revenues, not to mention perception of a company’s reliability. However, time-to-market pressures are counter-intuitive to traditional software testing best practices.
With the advent of DevOps and the movement to break down silos between developers, QA, security and operations, it becomes critically important that all members of an IT team - regardless of what tools they use, or role they play - understand the essentials of testing. This course is for anyone/everyone involved in defining or deploying a DevOps testing strategy.
The DevOps Test Engineering course specifically addresses testing in a DevOps environment. It describes culture and team aspects for team engineers, test strategies, test infrastructures, test tools, test automation, best practices, test management and analysis. Class culminates with an independent exam. Successfully passing (65%) the 90 minute exam, consisting of 40 multiple-choice questions, leads to the DevOps Test Engineer® Certificate.
