This is part 2 of the Software Tester to DevOps Automated Tester learning path. In this part of the learning path, you will prepare yourself to become a QA Specialist. You will gain the skills to test software, detect bugs and fix them. With the evolution of DevOps, testing has been automated using various tools, frameworks and scripts. This makes testing more reliable and much faster. In this learning path, you will learn to apply these different strategies, tools and techniques.

In the second part of this learning path, the focus is on API management, unit testing, testing with clean code, testing with Docker and automated testing. You will find several training sessions and a livelab that will prepare you to get started as a QA Specialist. You will finish this part with an exam.


After completing this part of the learning path you will be familiar with API management and unit testing. Furthermore, you can test with clean code and Docker. You know the basics of automated testing. You have developed yourself into a QA Specialist.

Furthermore, you are ready to start with part 3 of this learning path.


You have basic knowledge of software development. You have completed part 1 of this learning path.
