UI and API Test Automation Using Cypress Course at Niche Thyself

Cypress is a powerful Test Automation tool that plays a key role in the overall implementation of DevOps practices. It enables automated testing of web applications, offering a wide range of features and capabilities to streamline the testing process. With Cypress, teams can achieve faster and more efficient testing, leading to improved software quality and faster time-to-market.

In today’s industry landscape, there is a growing demand for QA/testers who possess strong programming skills. The role in high demand is that of an SDET (Software Development Engineer in Test). SDETs are responsible for developing robust testing frameworks, writing automated tests, and ensuring the overall quality of the software. By equipping yourself with programming skills, you can align with this industry demand and enhance your career prospects.

Towards the end of the course, you will be assigned a project that you need to complete using an automation framework. This project will serve as a practical application of the knowledge and skills you have acquired throughout the course. It will enable you to demonstrate your proficiency in test automation and showcase your ability to design and implement an automation framework that meets industry standards.
