MoT Essentials


Essentials Online 01 - Intro to software dev Welcome to the Introduction to Software Development course, part of the Essentials Online learning pathway. Starting out in testing can be a challenge, not only do we need to learn the necessary skills and knowledge to be a tester but we also have to understand how it fits into the wider context of Software development. There are many processes, activities and roles to take in and that’s what this course will help you with. This course gives you both an introduction to Software development and testing to help give you: Meetups The Essentials meetups are free, hands-on training sessions focused on essential topics in testing. Each meetup aims to give you practical skills and knowledge that you can apply in any context. This is achieved through a range of activities and discussion points that are designed for those who are newer to testing or wish to have a broader understanding of the software testing craft. Each meetup is facilitated by our amazing Essential hosts who freely share their time and experience to create a safe place to learn about testing.
