BDD with Python (Cucumber/Gherkin for Python)
Learn to write BDD style test automation with Python and Behave!!
Learn how BDD (Behavioral Driven Development/Test Driven Development) testing frameworks work. Learn how the pieces fall together and how frameworks are put together, as well as best practices of BDD. We will use the most popular and actively maintained 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.
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 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 a efficiently structured test framework and learn how to use Pythons logging module to produce readable reports.
