YourBase Promises Software Testing Acceleration

YourBase, a provider of developer productivity solutions that promises software testing acceleration, has emerged from stealth mode with $5 million in seed funding. The round was led by Lightspeed Venture Partners with participation from Unusual Ventures and Fathom Capital.

YourBase offers software testing acceleration built on a “Code Dependency Graph” that automates the test selection process for large, complex codebases. Software developers can get feedback on their code instantly, and reduce time and compute cost by up to 90 percent.

“Enterprises today are in a race to build new products faster to meet customer demand. And developers need instant feedback when they change, merge and test their code—regardless of codebase complexity,” said Yves Junqueira, CEO and co-founder of YourBase. “Yet, only the Googles and Facebooks of the world are able to test at these speeds, while everyone else in the market is stuck with a hodge-podge of clunky tools that create bottlenecks in the development process. Our core mission with YourBase is to provide a powerful platform that any developer can leverage to test software without stress or friction.” He adds, “We are starting with a simple idea: to allow developers to test their software in seconds, no matter how complex the codebase. As companies grow, codebases become large and unwieldy. Not only that but they become increasingly complex with more languages, frameworks, and architectures to optimize for. Too often, companies rush to build in-house solutions to speed up their software development builds and test cycles—putting strain on their teams in the process. YourBase Test Acceleration is built to relieve that stress and bring software test times from hours to just minutes.”

Benefits of YourBase Test Acceleration include:

  • Works with existing tools. Developers don’t have to replace their CI, build system, or version control. YourBase Test Acceleration integrates popular tools developers use today.
  • Easy to adopt. Just install the plug-in, run a build to set a baseline, and start accelerating test times.
  • Keep code safe: No need to share the company IP. YourBase can work in the cloud, on-premise or offline.
  • Maintain high software quality. YourBase Test Acceleration lets developers trace decisions to skip or run tests. Developers can run it in Observation Mode to build trust that it does what is expected and to maintain a simple development process. The solution infers dependencies automatically, so developers don’t have to manually specify them.
