Course Description

This course covers four key areas: thorough mastery of JavaScript(ES6) programming from beginner to advanced level, Cypress for UI testing, REST API testing with Cypress and Database test automation with Cypress. Cypress.io is a web-based automation testing tool that automates anything and everything available on a web page. Cypress is a very modern JavaScript-based framework. It has everything you need right out of the box: Test Runner, Assertion libraries, reporters and so on. It s very nicely and easily can be integrated into the front-end application (this is what we will do in the class) and your tests will be executed in the same run loop as your application. That's why this framework is very fast!. We will start with the very basic concepts of Web UI Automation so you will have the right foundation from the beginning (From Zero). Even if you will use any other framework for web automation in the future, the basics from this class will remain with you forever and will be very useful. I promise that you will be a HERO in building locators for any web element on the page. This is one of the most important parts of UI Automation and I have dedicated many minutes to a detailed explanation of that. Unlike many other Automation frameworks, Cypress can interact with APIs as well and you can automate API testing with Cypress actually. So again, if you don't know what API is about, we will start with Zero and learn everything you need to know about Cypress's capabilities for API interaction. I would not recommend building API automation framework based on Cypess, but its API capability is very useful in E2E testing and we will cover the use cases for that in this class. And we definitely go through Page Objects, which is very important to use! When you have 10 to 20 tests, you can maintain your code as is, but when you have 200-300 tests, the maintainability of the test framework is a number one priority. The right structure of page objects is a key to code reusability (no copy/pasting your code) and maintainability. Also, we will go through different advanced topics such as environment variables, setting up multiple reporters, cypress retry for failed tests, and eventually, we will run tests in Docker Container. If that will be your first experience with Docker, no worries, we will talk about basic Docker concepts as well. By the end of the class, trust me, you will be a Cypress Hero.

I was stuck on ES6 & Typescript fundamentals and how they blend with Cypress testing in general, then came across the CEN IDEA website. I booked a consultation on their platform and was allocated a dedicated coach to mentor me all through the sessions. The coach made my customer journey worthwhile and gave me a better understanding of the Cypress framework features, proper hands-on debugging, and proffer solutions within my codes on real-time projects. I have since joined their current Cypress live classes and loving it. It is an absolute pleasure to know this company.

With lots of undiluted informations out there on cypress, I needed a proper mentor to put me through the right pathway, then a friend referred me to CEN IDEA website, which is really user friendly, I booked for a consultation and I had a coach help me to have a proper hands-on experience on cypress. Through the live classes where the coach has been well articulated with live solutions, I have gained lots of confidence to forge ahead in my Cypress pathway. CEN IDEA is definitely the real deal.
