embrace Three Ways to Help Developers Embrace Testing

Development teams that shift testing left discover bugs earlier, enhance developer productivity, and increase release velocity by avoiding the long and costly delays that occur when bugs are discovered at the end of the development cycle. Shifting left creates faster feedback loops and allows for faster bug remediation.

5 Essentials to Ensure QA Fits Perfectly into DevOps

DevOps is the preferred methodology for software development companies looking to code, build, test, and deploy software as a continuous process. It is popular because it creates a fast-paced, results-oriented, collaborative environment that encourages cross-skilling and self-improvement.

Java Performance Testing with Your Own Tool

Performance testing is an important procedure to be carried out before approving any software product for shipment. You’ve probably heard some horror stories from senior colleagues about a time when the system was shipped without any performance testing. So now, it is an essential part of your testing. There are various tools for implementing performance testing for non-GUI middleware systems, but there are times we don't have the liberty to choose from an existing set of tools for performance testing

5 Steps to Get to Test Driven Development

TDD is a software development approach in which a test is written before writing the code. When TDD is properly set up, it can bring numerous advantages and become a cost-saver, providing true value to the business. When TDD is not properly set up or without understanding how it should be used, it can be a waste of time and money. Quality comes not from inspection but from the improvement of the production process

Most Common QA Myths

One of my mentors, whom I admire, once told me, "Quality is not only QA's responsibility; everyone- from development engineers to technical architects, to product managers need to share the responsibilities.

Man looking at mountains through binoculars The Art of Exploratory Testing

Some people assume that exploratory testing is a task with low-effort thinking, where the tester simply goes through the application and sees what comes up. While we shouldn't discount doing just that, because sometimes it does reveal some interesting bugs, there are techniques and patterns that testers can follow when exploring an application. Let's look at a two-step process to use in exploratory testing.

Tester looking at theories posted on a wall Wish-List Ideas for Software Testing Research

There are many established ideas for ways to test software, but the industry is changing every day, and there's plenty of room for growth of new ideas—or challenges to traditional ones. Here are three ideas for "wish-list" research to conduct in order to shake up some of the conventional notions you may have about software testing techniques.
