About this course

Testing is essential for web development. A good test suite for a web application allows you to confidently build new features without breaking old ones and provides clear documentation for the rest of your team.

A good test suite, however, requires smart design and proficiency with automated tools. These skills are so important to high quality software that many teams in the tech industry employ engineers dedicated to testing.

Reviews from learners

  • The progress I have made since starting to use codecademy is immense! I can study for short periods or long periods at my own convenience - mostly late in the evenings.

  • I felt like I learned months in a week. I love how Codecademy uses learning by practice and gives great challenges to help the learner to understand a new concept and subject.
