Ruby for Testers
Learn how to leverage Ruby to support the Q/A and testing processes.

The Ruby for Testers training course provides a hands-on introduction to Ruby, Rails, and the entire Ruby ecosystem designed specifically for Q/A engineers responsible for creating, running, and testing software developed in Ruby.

Ruby on Rails for Q/A Engineers Training begins with a high-level overview of the Ruby language and platform, and compares it to alternate platforms like Java and .NET. It then progresses into a hands-on examination of the language and writing simple Ruby applications. With the core Ruby foundation laid, the course then transitions into an examination of the Rails framework, and other components of the Ruby ecosystem, like Gems, Cucumber, Selenium, etc.

Ruby for Testers does assume students have a prior programming knowledge.

After this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the advantages / disadvantages / differences of Ruby compared to other languages
  • Implement a basic Ruby application
  • Understand the structure of the Rails framework
  • Implement a simple unit test using Ruby
  • Understand how to leverage Ruby in a continuous integration environment
This course will be delivered in 3 Days

DI will work with you and your team to define the most appropriate delivery structure, schedule and dates. Structure, schedule and dates will be determined by project schedule, team availability and classroom availability. And of course, it will also be determined by DI’s instructor availability.
