Automated Web & Security Testing covers to foundational skills to automate quality assurance testing for websites and applications. Alongside that, students will learn cybersecurity concepts, allowing them to identify and assess potential website vulnerabilities and exploits and learn about what attacks look like on the back end to assist with prevention and mitigation. Students will be working from a virtual machine to test what these exploits look like to learn how to recognize how to prevent them. The skills and habits practiced in the course are part of the foundation for a career in Web Testing or Cybersecurity.
At this time, the courses are scheduled to begin the week of September 14th.
All of our fall classes will be meeting digitally, using AlbanyCanCode’s digital platform.
