Automation Tool Training

Practical Test Automation Workshop with Tools


Go from a Zero to a Hero-Test-Automator with this training workshop.

This practical workshop will equip attendees with the skills to write scripts for automating functional tests. It will highlight the basic scripting approached regardless of the tool in use.

Attendees will learn the best practices to test automation.  Multiple open source tools will be used to showcase the data-driven and keyword driven frameworks. Different test interfaces will be covered e.g. API testing and GUI testing.

Who should attend: 

Test Automation Engineer, Test Analyst, Tester, Developer or any person that has an interest in test automation. Any person that is responsible for the practical implementation of test automation solutions.


By the end of this course, an attendee should be able to: 

  • Understand the evolution of scripting methods
  • Understand a variety of open source tools and its purposes
  • Automate tests via API’s
  • Automate test for GUI testing
  • Implement maintenance tolerant automated tests
  • Create automated tests that is built on the data-driven framework
  • Create automated tests that is built on the key-word driven framework
  • Building a test automation architecture (TAA)
  • Enable the transition of testing from a manual to an automated approach

Pre-Requisite: Attending the ISTQB Test Automation training course (sitting for the exam is not a pre-requisite), basic understanding of programming concepts and programming languages.  

Workshop Duration: 2 days

Who is our trainer? 

Joel Oliveira started his professional career in 1998 as a researcher and since then, he already assumed different roles (from developer to tester, from technical and project manager to quality and engineering manager), managing and leading teams from 1 to 130 engineers in business areas so diverse as telecommunications, government and public sector, financial services, defence and security or aerospace.

In 2009, after a closer involvement with the software testing area, he founded the first online testing community in Portugal and one year later, the PSTQB – Portuguese Software Testing and Qualifications Board becoming a member of the ISTQB working groups in 2011.

Passionate about software testing & quality assurance, dedicated to improve recognition/proficiency of the testing community and eager to share his experiences, you can find him giving talks and workshops about software testing (manual, exploratory, automation, mobile, performance, security), engineering processes (waterfall, agile, continuous improvement and CMMI) or career management (mainly but not only for testers).
