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.
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.
Building automated testing is always a delicate balancing act, with the best course of action heavily reliant on the type of testing, scale of the business and a host of other factors to boot. However, the choice between OSS and proprietary tools to safely build automated testing is a whole question in itself – we take a look at the key pros and cons to help you make the right choice…
In this presentation, Orlando will explore the following questions, outline the pros and cons of each buying and building, and provide key strategy and valuable tips to help enterprise mobility teams make the right decision when incorporating a mobile device cloud into their mobile app development and testing processes.
In this session, Jennifer Bonine and Rick Faulise will explore new shifts in testing paradigms. Demonstrate an AI-first testing method that integrates with your current manual and automation testing, and understand AI that aids your app teams. Re-think where you want to spend time and money in your testing team in a challenge that plagues most companies of too much to test and too little time.
In this talk, we will confront misconceptions about what accessibility is and isn’t while taking an interactive look at how to test for usable, accessible and inclusive applications.
In this talk, Liz introduces the Cynefin framework to help make sense of different types of situations and how to approach them: the obvious ones, the complicated ones which require expertise, the complex ones in which outcomes emerge, and the chaotic ones that we’re usually trying to avoid. Find out how these simple concepts can help us counter our innate human desire for predictability, enabling change and innovation; not just in software development, but in every aspect of our lives.
Agile Development and Continuous Delivery are rapidly becoming the de facto standard for software development. The key business driver behind these initiatives: delivering new functionality to your customers faster. This is easy to state in theory but much harder to achieve in practice: the level of quality of your services must be maintained! If your system goes down once a week every week, your customers are unlikely to be happy.
Are you tired of spending endless hours maintaining your automated test cases? Do you dread looking at test automation reports because of the tedious tweaks you know you’ll need to make from the latest updates from dev? Has your team lost its faith in test automation?
The ultimate goal of a DevOps approach is to deliver high-quality features to your customers at the pace they need. High performing DevOps shops point to continuous testing and test automation as key contributors to their success.
