This two-day course introduces students to LeanFT. LeanFT, or Lean Functional Testing is a small but powerful testing tool that can allow Quality Assurance teams and Developers to develop test cases in a more integrated manner. By gaining the ability to develop test cases directly in Visual Studio or Eclipse, applications can be tested despite not being fully developed and/or deployed for general Quality Assurance teams to use.

Day one will focus on introducing the product and basic concepts of LeanFT test script development using Visual Studio. Day two will examine the integration with Eclipse as well building application models and data driving with Microsoft Excel.
