This seminar is designed to provide participants with practical solutions to object-oriented testing issues and problems, and to expose participants to a set of techniques for systematically approaching the testing of object-oriented software applications.  The methods taught in this workshop can be adapted to any organi
The seminar is designed for analysts, programmers, managers, testers, and quality assurance analysts who are involved in developing or maintaining object-oriented applications and who desire to learn about how to improve the quality and effectiveness of the testing process.
Attendees should have a basic background and understanding of object-oriented development co
ncepts.  Experience in obje
ct-oriented programming is useful but not required.  Based upon specific client needs, training in the required object-oriented background topics can be provided as part of the course material.
What You Will Learn
  • How to view testing as a formal process
  • How to establish a life cycle testing process
  • Step-by-step guidelines for systematic object-oriented testing
  • Object-oriented testing roles and responsibilities
  • Testing levels for object-oriented applications
  • Techniques for designing effective tests
  • Practical testing standards and documentation
  • Testing deliverables and work products
Virtual Classroom Schedule
Virtual classroom sessions are conducted as follows:
1:00 pm to 4:15 pm DAILY, Eastern Time (New York)
Virtual sessions are delivered using Cisco Webex Meeting Center. When you join the online meeting using the link provided in a confirmation email, you will be asked to either phone a US toll number or connect using a computer head set. If you phone in to the audio conference using the toll number provided, long distance toll charges will apply. If you connect using a computer head set with microphone (VOIP), no toll charges will apply.
