Course Description

Welcome to Test Automation with Cypress!

In this course, we’ll be learning about Cypress from scratch, helping you build a strong foundation of knowledge and understanding.

From learning how to build fast and reliable automation tests for any web application using Cypress, and a complete understanding of Cypress components for generating test execution videos, screenshots and reporting, to understanding JavaScript basics in order to help you implement the best practices of coding for Cypress tests, everything will be covered in this course.

So, whether you’re someone with basic-level knowledge of JavaScript, or even if you know absolutely nothing about JavaScript-based automation tools, this course will get you to the point where you feel confident in your ability to apply for Test Automation Engineer jobs, or even build on your portfolio as an Automation Engineer.
