The Joy of Python for Testers

A Non-Intimidating Dive into Automation

Explore the ease and power of Python for automating tests and various activities in testing.

Python is a powerful, approachable, multi-faceted, batteries-included programming language which can very well be the language of choice for various forms of testing. I’ve coded in various programming languages, however Python turned out to be my language of choice over the last 15 years. It’s sheer joy to code in Python because of its intuitiveness, clear syntax and amazing built-in and third party libraries for testing and beyond.

In testing, you can use Python for various forms of test automation. Apart from test automation, there are various other testing activities which can benefit from Python based automation.

It is a hands-on tutorial. No slides. Only code. Learn by doing.

This course will be structured in 4 sections:

1. Fast track Python and coded tests in Python.

2. Python for File processing and controlling other processes.

3. Python for Web UI automation using Selenium

4. Python for Web Services Automation

At the end of the tutorial, I’d give lots and lots of “Where do I go from here?” style references for a wide range of contexts.

I learned Python on my own, so I empathise with a learner’s journey. I apply Python for creating testing frameworks & tools, system automation, web automation, performance test data analysis, security regression frameworks and so on. I have coached hundreds of developers and testers and consulted on Python code & design reviews. I’ve designed this course specifically for testers to get started into the wonderful world of Python.
