Continuous Secure Testing: Stepping Stones to a New Era of Your Testing Brigade

Continuous Secure Testing: Stepping Stones to a New Era of Your Testing Brigade

Security has become a necessity in our day-to-day activities. Are we aware of how we can uncover these vulnerabilities? Do we understand the basic security tests that we run? Can we analyze and understand whether the threat found is a false positive or not? How can we make Static Application Security Testing and Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) work hand in hand for our benefit? How can we have DAST Automated with our dear Selenium? How can we apply DAST on Mobile Apps? How can we have DAST part of CI/CD pipeline?

Quality Focused Software Testing in Critical Infrastructure

Quality Focused Software Testing in Critical Infrastructure

When testing software, it is not uncommon to hear that one hundred percent coverage is unachievable. What happens, then when we are asked to do such a thing. If the software that is being tested is used in critical infrastructure (power systems, water, medical, banking, etc.) then an escaped bug is not a trivial thing.

Shopping for new tools is not unlike dating. You need to ask yourself the same questions: “What am I looking for?” “Do they fit in with the picture I have for my future?” “Will it get along with my friends colleagues?” On top of that, the testing tool landscape has changed so much in just the past few years. What expectations should you have? Where do you even go to “meet” these tools?

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.

Exploring a DevOps Transformation Like a Tester

Exploring a DevOps Transformation Like a Tester

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.

AI and Future of Software Testing

AI and Future of Software Testing

At the turn of the 19th century, the industrial revolution replaced many manual jobs and that resulted in a better quality of life. At the same time, it also led to the loss of a large number of jobs in the short term. Since then there has been a recurrent fear that technological change will spawn mass unemployment. However, the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning revolution, that the world has come to terms with, will be significantly different from the Industrial Revolution.
