Event description
Avoid common testing pitfalls, and learn to determine how much developer testing is enough

About this Event

Benefits & Objectives:

  • Learn how to be more efficient and effective by achieving higher test coverage early in the cycle
  • How to make the software itself more testable.
  • How to plan and carry out an efficient and effective developer testing strategy.
  • Avoid common testing pitfalls, and learn to determine how much developer testing is enough.
  • Understand the functional and non-functional testing goals and approach


Unified Software Engineering is a concept where all major engineering disciplines are blended and it gel well with agile “Everyone can do everything”.

This course will target the developers to understand and practice preventive and reactive testing, while writing a code, they can ensure that product has less defects.

First major part is developer testing, which is a critical component of software development. Significant developer effort is spent without finding defects that should have been found. Then comes functional testing, Automation and performance are equally important for unified engineer.

In this seminar, you will get a practical introduction to the concepts of Unit Test, Testing Design Techniques and test automation, Performance and Security Testing.
