My company is moving from an Angular front end to a React one, and I'm researching the best way for the QA department to follow suit. We want to keep using the Protractor framework for test automation, but what tools would go best with React and Protractor in terms of maintanability, scalability and ease of use? Looking at Jest/Enzyme vs Mocha, Chai, TestCafe, Telerik, etc. Any opinions from those experienced with any of these tools would be greatly appreciated!

 

So, my team's who completed DevOps from the reputed DevOps Training institute, been trying to work with Xamarin and hockey app, we want to automate the whole build process, like for Windows, Androis and IOS. Our end goal here is to make sure that the compilation will be sent directly to HockeyApp after the code is entered. We aren't really confident using CI/CD, are there any alternatives? like PowerShell script. How can we implement this using VSTS?

I want to know the testing challenges that the banking and financial services sector might encounter while implementing FLEXCUBE to address a bank's core banking needs. Also, I want to know a list of recommended software used in the banking sector.

I'm currently building out a Test PMO for an insurance company. We have a long term, fixed-price contract with a vendor using a waterfall model.  I'm currently working on KPIs and metrics which I will use to tell the testing story, which means both technical and business comsumers will need to find value in them. I'm conducting targeted interviews atm  but am interested in hearing if any of you have had experience in this arena.  

What kinds KPIs / metrics have you found valuable?

What kinds of chatring / mapping have you found to be confusing?

What considerations would you want to address?

Any additional comments?

We are small Dev shop who outsources mobile app development to a third party.  We do in-depth user acceptance testing of the app in house.  We currently have a couple an older iphone 6s and Samsung Galaxy S6.  Was looking to expand/upgrade our hardware.  Was wondering if anyone out there was using IOS and Android tablets to do their manual testing as opposed to smart phones to allow for a bigger display/ease of testing.  

Suppose you work at a Company. 

And a new Client arrives, he needs the system he has, and he continues to build, to be tested. 

What is the approach you take, to find

-which tests to approach

-which tests to automate

-which tools to use

-how to build a solution for that client Testing and Automation testing needs?

Hello, 

do you use image recognition testing tools like Sikulix ?

How do you overcome the restrictions that the test tool needs always to be executed in a screen with the same resolution ? 

Usually the test case fails when is executed in a screen with a different resolutions.

Are any tools / image matching algorithms that allow to overcome this limitation?

Thanks in advance

I have been in software test for medical devices/software for the last five years, across three different companies. With my prior two organizations we formally validated our web-based software products only for the one or two most recent versions of Internet Explorer (at those times). Having our software work in Chrome or Firefox were nice-to-haves, but we did not communicate to our customers that we supported those browsers,  I'm soon to start work on a major release of an existing product, and the Project has decided to officially test/validate only Chrome, based on our current knowledge that the current release has known issues with IE. Seems to me we could be taking the easy way out, and not taking into consideration what our users use (often by policy). Apparently we don't currently have that information, though, I have brought it up that we should try to figure that out. 

Historically, hospitals/labs/medical offices/etc have - by policy - typically only employed IE for business use, but I know market share in this sector has been shifting to Chrome. But how much/fast? General browser usage, and even entrprise usage statistics are easy to come by, but I'm banging my head at this point trying to find information specific to healthcare/medical research. 

What are your experiences/thoughts on this?

 

 

When we train AI systems using human data, the result is human bias.

 

How true is this?
