Course information

Course Summary

Agile development methods such as Scrum and Kanban aim at enabling teams to deliver feature increments in short cycles. One of the key elements to doing this efficiently and in high quality is the practice of test automation, which ensures that all functional and regression testing is automated. These tests are written by developers, ideally at the same time as the product code. The key to good test automation is learning to write testable code. There are many benefits to following this development approach, such as better quality code in less time, reduced bug analysis and fix efforts, and being more responsive to changing requirements.

This course will teach you how to write testable code in ABAP, and covers unit testing, test isolation, test-driven development, testing legacy code, and more.
