Automated software testing is widely considered a best practice. After considerable effort, the software development industry now agrees that unit testing, system testing, usability, and performance testing are essential in most serious software development efforts, but we know that they are hard work.
Why are we afraid to deploy software on Friday evening? Well, mostly because no one wants to debug production issues on Saturday and we really want to go home. Answering the (seemingly) basic question of “does the code actually work?” is surprisingly difficult at times.
How many bugs are left in the code? Where are they? These are the questions that software developers and project managers ask themselves when they are getting close to release applications. In this article, Faisal Qureshi explains how you can perform risk analysis and gauge the quality of software products in development using Hourglass Bug Predictor.
It is safe to say that Selenium WebDriver is the number one testing tool for many software engineers across the globe. However, as the software development world has been growing rapidly, so has the software testing industry. More and more UI testing frameworks besides Selenium are gaining popularity.
In software applications, an API (Application Programming Interface) is typically used to provide smooth communication between different software components. In this article, Olga Ezzheva discusses five benefits that implementing well-designed automated API testing provides for a successful software QA strategy.
Your Internet of Things (IoT) solution is unique and you will quickly realize that testing end-to-end IoT performance is hard. This article explains what you should require in an IoT performance testing tool to solve these problems.
This talk will take you through the challenge of testing a cloud-native application that uses MQTT (a pub/sub protocol), webhooks and REST to interact with IoT devices on top of AWS. It uses services which cannot be run on a developers machine for testing, so it was needed to develop a test setup which enables us to continuously test against real services.
