Most testers need to know some programming to enhance their job abilities, but the problem is that the majority of trade books, textbooks, and courses are directed toward developers. Mary Sweeney's book responds to a huge unmet need and is the only book that covers Visual Basic for software testing, a large and critical industry.

Full Description

The goal of Visual Basic for Testers is to teach you how to use Visual Basic to increase your level of sophistication as a tester. You'll learn how to use VB to write an automated testing project and what to look for in a well-written VB program. Author Mary Sweeney will help you gain the experience necessary both to use VB to support an automated text project and to text a commercial application written in VB.

Since testers often want to move to development tracks, Sweeney also presents information on programming and the issues involved in maintenance and debugging.

Who this book is for

Visual Basic for Testers is easy to read and understand, and is not intended to be a high-level technical reference. Rather, it is a practical guide with many examples provided by real testers with real-world experience in writing VB test code. It is useful for those considering a career in testing and wondering just what the difference is between writing code for testing and writing code for software development.
