All students who sign up for the Bug Advocacy course must have successfully completed the BBST Foundations course.
BBST® Bug Advocacy is the most important course in the series, helping testers improve the most visible part of their work. You will become a highly effective tester, knowing how to help your team fix the right bugs.
The course will help you to:
develop technical skills in effective bug investigation, such as troubleshooting failures and isolating failure-producing configurations
apply different heuristics for design problems versus program failures to easily find compelling arguments for fixing them
understand how people make decisions and how to adapt your work to their biases
know when to advocate for your bug, and when to stop
You will work on live bug reports of open-source applications where you can actually contribute to the documentation of these bugs.
