Course Description

Learn how Cucumber BDD (Behavioral Driven Development/Test Driven Development) testing frameworks work. Learn how the pieces of Cucumber fall together and how frameworks are put together, as well as best practices of BDD. We will use the most popular and actively maintained Cucumber framework for Python BDD called ‘Behave’. We will use PowerPoint presentation to convey the concepts on each topic and then write example code testing real scenarios with Selenium WebDriver as well as API testing.

We will build an E-commerce site on our local machine and practice writing real test cases both for front end with Selenium WebDriver and for the backend with Python, with full access to MySQL database of our site.

Critical addition to your resume

If you are getting into the QA world or you are looking to advance your career, having BDD testing skill will accelerate your success. Python is one of the most popular languages to use in software testing, and knowing how to use it with BDD style testing will expand your pool of possibilities.

In addition to using Python for BDD testing you will also get tips and guidance on best practices.   

After completion of this course you will be able to go through interview as if you have BDD testing experience. You will also have a ready to go framework that you can continue to add test cases for practice and for your portfolio.

Content and Overview   

In this course we will be using PowerPoint presentation to explain the concepts and then go to code in an IDE (PyCharm) for each topic. Some topics, we will go directly to code and start writing and executing.   

We will install necessary packages for our framework. We will discuss the directory structure needed for our design, and then we will write and run test cases.  

We will run how the BDD tests are written, how the work together and how to understand and control the output.  

We will create an efficiently structured test framework and learn how to use Pythons logging module to produce readable reports.
