Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Stephen Allott, and welcome to my course, ISTQB Foundation: Static Testing. I'm an independent software testing consultant and director of my own company, ElectroMind. I have experience of development testing and project management in blue chip organizations in the financial services, telecommunications, and travel industry sectors. It's been said that as many a 70% of defects in software could have been found in the specifications. Why not invest time in static testing techniques and move towards defect prevention rather than fire fighting when something goes wrong after go live? In this course, you are going to learn about the early lifecycle techniques that will help prevent defects migrating from requirements in design into production software. Some of the major topics that we will cover include key differences between static and dynamic testing, roles and responsibilities in a formal review process, review types, including walkthroughs and inspection, review techniques, such a scenarios and perspective‑based reading. By the end of this course, you will be able to apply a variety of review techniques on your work products, whether traditional or agile, and you'll have all the knowledge required for the ISTQB Foundation exam. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the fundamental principles of software testing and know some of the basic terminology. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about early lifecycle testing techniques with the ISTQB Foundation: Static Testing course at Pluralsight.
