Globalization is an important step in ensuring your product is ready for worldwide markets, and linguistic testing is a crucial piece of the puzzle. This article looks at what linguistic testing is, product examples, and how locale-specific cultures play an important part in enabling linguistic support. Here’s how to design the best strategy for implementing a linguistic test effort.
As with any other quality attribute, it is ideal for accessibility to be incorporated in the early stages of design and engineering. But organizations that didn’t initially take accessibility into account can still address it now—it’s better late than never. Here are the main attributes you should consider from the design, development, and testing angles, whether you're building accessibility in from the beginning or adding it now.
Behavior-based robots are engineered to be mechanically reactive to input and gradually adapt their actions. What if we could apply this approach to an automated test harness? Are bots independently exploring an application under test and intelligent learning machines analyzing the results the future of software testing?
Decades before web apps or smartphones existed, the concept of the separation of logic, presentation, and data layers in software made a lot of sense. That vision evolved into what we now call model-driven development, where rules, workflows, and dependencies are built once, as models in a centralized repository. It's the same basic idea, and it's just as useful, if not more so.
Most software developers are in either the agile or the waterfall camp. Agile is required to be competitive, but many enterprise processes still rely on waterfall practices for stability. They can coexist.
In this interview, Jennifer Scandariato, the director of test engineering and leader of the Women in Technology initiative at iCIMS, explains the changing role of the manual tester, how they can adapt to a much faster environment, and why security is more important than ever before.
In this interview, Brandon Carlson, a consultant at Lean TECHniques, explains how all the newer aspects of software have come together. He explains how things have changed since agile has grown in prominence and what DevOps does for testing and development.

In this interview, Shailesh Mangal, the CTO of Zephyr, discusses the Internet of Things and how it changes the way we think about the devices we use. He also explains what sensory monitoring and smart devices are, and details how IoT devices have changed testing.
More than two decades ago, Richard P. Gabriel proposed the idea that “Worse Is Better” to explain why some things that are designed to be pure and perfect are eclipsed by solutions that are compromised and imperfect. This is not simply an observation that things should be better but are...
Your organization is embracing agile. When it comes to adopting the process, your team seems to be doing all the right things. Yet deep down, something still doesn’t seem quite right. As their leader, it could be that you haven’t figured it out either. Perhaps your team is lacking some...
Transforming software development across geographic locations in a large company is difficult. But Nationwide Insurance found a way to successfully implement more than forty agile teams in multiple locations around the United States using their internal Application Development Center.
Top web companies employ continuous delivery of software to build and deploy systems faster and gain a marked competitive advantage. You can do it, too! Andy Singleton shares the patterns for testing in real time that result in more frequent and more reliable releases. He explains why...
