Software testers’ talents brought to light at STARWEST

“We’re a lot stronger than you say we are…and you know it, don’t you?” – A Bug’s Life  Much to my children’s dismay, I ask that they sit down with me once every year or so to rewatch the 1998 movie, A Bug’s Life, in hopes that they’ll one day share my unpopular opinion that … continue reading

Test automation at the speed of DevOps

Remember the old adage: “Speed, Cost, Quality -– pick any two?”  This tradeoff is no longer an option. With digital transformation initiatives driving DevTest teams to scale Agile and adopt DevOps, all three vectors must be addressed. This requires a fundamental shift in how you approach testing. It’s not a matter of acquiring more or … continue reading

Learn to harness chaos to build resilient systems

Systems in production fail. Nodes go down, networks become inaccessible. Chaos engineering is the practice of intentionally failing production infrastructure to see how resilient the system is. At this year’s ChaosConf, attendees will learn the how-to and benefits of failing parts of their infrastructure to see how their systems hold up, and to see where … continue reading

Follow the test pyramid to continuous testing

As software development grows more complex — microservices, containers, APIs, — and demand for faster releases increases, testing as usual can be seen as a clumsy, out-of-place step in the delivery process.  Organizations that have adopted Agile development and DevOps methodologies know that testing has to keep pace, and are finding that tools that don’t … continue reading

Continuous delivery facilitates the release of software to production at any time, supporting Agile practices and cutting development release time from several weeks to just a few hours. Successful Continuous delivery means being able to roll out a working configuration to production at any time. You’ve got a large and ever-growing list of “application endpoints” … continue reading

4 best practices to build more perfect software, faster

It’s a truism that the only code that has no bugs is code that has never been written. Working to prevent something from failing even though it’s inevitably going to fail anyway doesn’t solve anything. That kind of brittle approach for perfection does not address the root problem; it just papers over the issue so … continue reading

7 deadly mistakes to avoid while testing your mobile application

Mobile app testing is different from web application testing. Mobile app users seek a lot more than just app’s functionality, like sleek design, simple user experience, and speed. Due to a highly competitive market, users can find a better alternative to an existing app if they are not satisfied with it. Mobile app testing plays … continue reading

SD Times Blog: We have DevOps, and DevSecOps… Why not DevTestOps?

DevOps had become a thing by then, and I asked Tom Lounibos, then the CEO of SOASTA, what he thought of the term DevTestOps.  “DevTestOps. DTO. I kind of like the speed element to it,” he said. “It sounds like a Camaro in the ‘70s.” RELATED CONTENT: Testing all the time How does your solution … continue reading
