This is general testing training for PHP developers. It gives an in-depth overview of different testing practices and levels of test automation. Students will learn how to implement tests depending on application requirements. This training includes browser-based acceptance tests, framework-based functional tests, unit tests, and integration tests. But before determining how to test an application, it must be discovered what is important to test. By writing down specifications and turning them into BDD tests, students will learn to write tests effectively and separate specifications from implementation.
