Automated testing and test automation far ago have ceased to remain options or choices for the development projects. Now as the DevOps and Agile approach getting huge traction across projects of all types and lengths, automation seems to have the key development methodologies.
The objective is to support teams to develop products that matter. Value-Driven Development encourages teams to adapt and engage with end-users. The key is to develop products that are actually being used. A working product is useless when it is not being used, a quality product is pointless when it is not being used. Value-driven teams are user and usage orientated teams.
Just when we, as testers, got a handle on what Agile means for us, the landscape changed yet again to a DevOps culture. Words like continuous integration (CI), continuous deployment (CD), and pipelines are now ones we’re hearing on a daily basis. As a tester, I’ll admit, I had no clue of what these words meant, and how was I to change the way I tested to fit within this DevOps culture.
Testing involves two types, one will be functional and the other is the non-functional testing. These types of testing are different – continue reading to learn about both of them.

The value of machine learning is rooted in its ability to create models that guide future actions and to discover patterns missed by the naked eye. Machine learning methods are vastly superior in analyzing potential customer churn across data from multiple sources such as transactional, social media, and CRM sources.
What is embedded software? Embedded software is sometimes known as firmware. Specifically, we design, code, and test software that is permanently or semi-permanently stored on the microprocessor or sometimes stored in some other nonvolatile memory location but is almost never stored on a hard drive or CD/ DVD. In colloquial terms, we say the software is “burned” onto the chip.
What is the purpose of adding ‘Control’ to our list of tasks? One major reason lies in the tendency of processes to lapse back into previous and undesirable behaviors. Our ‘Improve’ phase options may make for better software or better software development, but it is entirely possible that the new approach hasn’t taken root with our developers. By adding some reasonable measures to control regression to the past, we can help see to it that our new approach has a chance to become institutionalized in our organizations, be they large or small or somewhere in between.
