About the course

There is a major gap between the technical skills a tester should have vs what skills testers exercise during their testing. Without an understanding of how software is working behind the scene, it is very hard to get a decent test coverage.

This course builds the basics around generally how software works and the turning wheels behind the magic happening on the screen, which is essential for enhancing testing skills and particularly very important for learning automation.
