    I think the course is intended to make developers to write better unit tests that is a good thing, it will make QAs job much easier! But I also would recommend it for STEs and especially SDETs as it outlines main types of testing, coverage, risk, and process. Well structured, many exercises, good addition to Udacity's CS courses

    I started this course with a little programming experience and I think it is for professional programmers not for my kind. It gives a very useful knowledge.
