This training course will teach participants the fundamentals of software testing, the test process and its integration into the software development process as well as the different test levels and test types. In addition to this, the test design techniques for dynamic testing will be demonstrated as well as procedures for static testing. Finally, the principles of risk-based testing are covered and the principal aspects of defect management taught.
Whilst training for testers has made great progress in recent years – alone in Germany there are more than 10,000 certified testers – the role of the developer in software testing is mostly underestimated; they are often the driving force in the area of component testing. For these reasons it is important that also developers receive basic knowledge in the central themes of software testing.
As a result Díaz & Hilterscheid has created the two-day course “Testing for Developers” on the basis of the internationally recognized ISTQB® Certified Tester training. The first day covers the fundamentals of software testing, including the terminology used, the test process and its integration into the software development process, and the various test levels and testing types. The second day the techniques of static testing are covered and specification-based test design techniques are demonstrated, with exercises for deeper understanding. Finally, the principles of risk-based testing are covered and the principal aspects of defect management taught.
After completion of the course, developers are able to construct systematic test cases by themselves and can execute developer tests to achieve the test completion criteria. In addition, they can use the necessary terminology in order to confer with system and acceptance testers. In this way an optimization of the entire test process is possible.
