Appium is the open-source tool that extends Selenium WebDriver to Mobile (iOS & Android) as well as Windows 10 Desktop applications testing. We offer this introductory course to get you up & running quickly with the tool.
This course is a great follow-on course from our Selenium WebDriver Java course, as on this course we show you how to install, configure and start using Appium to test mobile & desktop apps. As the coding is an extension of WebDriver, we do recommend that you already have some WebDriver knowledge before taking this course.
On the course we use both real, physical devices (all Android) as well as Emulators, so it is designed as a very practical course. The course uses a number of technologies: Appium Desktop Server, Eclipse IDE, WebDriver & Appium Java Bindings, Android SDK, GUI Spy Tools, Android Emulators & Physical devices.
The accompanying workbook for this course is over 250 pages, and acts as a great resource for code & examples for Appium Mobile Testing.
This course can be delivered as online or on-site (Classroom based). Online we use device emulators to demonstrate Appium, classroom we also bring physical devices to try out.
Online the course is live, instructor-led. We use GoToTraining as our platform, which can be accessed from anywhere just using a web browser.
Below you will find the course topics covered. Please note that we also offer these as on-site courses at your offices. Please phone for a quote.
