Trainer: Bas Dijkstra
As a modern software tester, you're expected to participate in code reviews, suggest additions to unit test suites and contribute to automation.
This means you'll need to be comfortable reading and writing code.
But isn't that really hard to learn? Where do you get started? And how do you get the confidence to write and run code that adds value to your testing efforts and the software your team is developing?
The course is packed with hands-on exercises designed to teach you to apply fundamental concepts of object-oriented programming, and to give you continuous feedback while you progress and grow into a capable and confident contributor to automation and application code. You'll be writing and running code from day 1.

You do not need any special equipment, however, an external mouse and a second screen will be helpful.
This course only uses freely available and open source software, so no additional investment is required. Detailed instructions for installing this software and preparing your system for the course will be sent to you well in advance.
Yes, each session is recorded and made available to you afterwards. If you have a problem with being recorded, we can make arrangements so that everybody is comfortable to attend and participate in the course.
Practical exercises are a big part of this course, both during the sessions as well as take-home exercises in between sessions. At the end of the course, you will be required to complete a capstone assignment which assesses your grasp of everything that has been covered in the sessions. No theory questions will be asked.
Yes, indeed this is the intention. Our trainers are not only excellent practitioners in their field, they also have extensive experience in transferring their experience and knowledge to others in a pleasant and comfortable manner. They also enjoy sharing many amusing and illuminating anecdotes from their careers to-date.
