How Measuring Defect Detection Percentage (DDP) Improves Regression Test Coverage

How Measuring Defect Detection Percentage (DDP) Improves Regression Test Coverage

In this Webinar, we will show you the fundamentals to calculating how effective your team is at finding bugs in your software. Using ServiceNow and Micro Focus ALM to demonstrate, we’ll show you how to automate the flow of information between your ALM and ITSM tools to monitor DDP in real time.

The Art and Science of Test Automation

The Art and Science of Test Automation

You can start painting without learning how to draw, but a good artist can tell — just by looking at a painting— if a work of art was done by someone who was an experienced artist, or a novice. Similarly, you can start automation without much training, but an engineer, well versed in automation, can quickly tell whether someone is practiced or not.

Testing for Accessibility and Inclusive Design

Testing for Accessibility and Inclusive Design

Accessibility is making sure that your product can be used by as many people as possible, including the use of external technologies to help deliver your product experience to people that have disabilities. Inclusive Design is the development of products that allow for the greatest number of users to use and experience them without the need for additional technology.

Can QA Contribute in Production Operation Testing for a Successful Software Release/Deployment?

Can QA Contribute in Production Operation Testing for a Successful Software Release/Deployment?

Production deployment starts with the first line of code: an application should be built to work in production infrastructure, could be deployed using existing process, be it CD or manual update and handle load expected in production. Even in almost ideal CD process with wide use of automation where it is possible, some human interaction might be required when it comes to changes to DB, build scripts or infrastructure with new release.

The Hidden Requirements: Exploring Emotions with Placebos

The Hidden Requirements: Exploring Emotions with Placebos

A placebo is designed and used primarily for psychological benefit. Things like sugar pills, elevator door close buttons, and office thermostats aim “to please”, rather than have any other, “real” effects. Now, consider a placebo in the context of software and testing. What if “pleasing” is the only intended and expected result? How can it be tested? What does a bug look like? And, do these ideas also apply to non-placebos that have other, “real” effects? In this workshop, we’ll explore placebos, nocebos, the placebo/nocebo response, illusion and locus of control, relativism, wants, needs, and expectations, and will connect it all to testing.

Testing your Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

Testing your Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

In an increasingly hypothesis-driven product development world, experimenting with Minimum Viable Products (MVPs) is considered as a pragmatic approach towards building the eventual “1.0” product. MVPs allow the team to systematically validate its key hypotheses, and create a basis for making critical product decisions based on evidence from the field. In this webinar, we shall examine the theory behind testing your MVP and describe a few of the popular testing methods. We shall also consider real-life examples to illustrate the point.
