It gives you insight into the cost-benefit analysis, the opportunities and risks and the Agile team approaches to let the testfirst strategy drive the quality goals of the projects. The course covers BDD and mobile test automation in a hands-on fashion using pairing techniques of XP. It also covers the real-life challenges that a tester would face while applying the strategies. All the concepts are driven using the case studies and actual test automation tasks involved in any live agile projects and actual mobile devices (not simulators). The course introduces you to the mobile test automation tool Appium.
