What is Test Environment and Why Should It Be Planned Within the Software Lifecycle?

Test environment is a server environment where software is checked in terms of functionality and controlled that the business needs are met in terms of performance, as well as other various needs by the team developing the software before the software meets the end user. These changes may vary depending on the content and needs of the project and/or the methodology followed in the project. Recently, especially after the increase in the popularity of test automation in the market, it has become a common problem for companies. The main source of the reason for this problem that comes along with [...]

The Return of Investment of Test Automation

In today’s competitive business world, it is unavoidably important that the businesses have as much profit as possible out of what they have to sell. It’s like squeezing all the juice out of an orange to make the most amount of juice. But of course, this is expected as growth rate is important in the business world. The situation is not so different in software development businesses either. But of course, software development is mostly time variant more than any other business types because other parameters affect the processes minimally, and the latency to assert a totally new product or [...]

Acceptance Criteria Example Discussion in terms of Software Testing

Nowadays, software development teams prefer to follow an agile framework or set a frame, in respect of agile manifesto, for software development. In agile development, the most crucial thing is establishing useful and valuable success acceptance criteria for the team. In this article, I will try to argue the importance of the acceptance criteria in the point of view of a tester. I will go through on a simple example to make it clear to all. The User Story: The primary goal of using a story is about the working style of the human mindset. The human mind is working [...]

Flaky Tests and How to Reduce them

In the last few decades, the tech world has been evolving with such an increasingly high rate. Due to this fact, even keeping up with the changes poses great challenges. Especially for software development and testing purposes, the changes are too risky to dismiss. With the booming mobile industry came the challenges of having an understanding of different mobile operating systems and being able to deal with them. With the blossoming of various browsers both for mobile devices and for computers rose the issues of changing mechanisms. Building scalable and configurable automated tests are crucial and require much more tedious [...]

Agile Development and Continuous Testing

Ever since the first software was conceived, there was an immediate need for certain methodologies to follow to create further software. Calling the process of creating and maintaining software “Software Development” was not enough, as there were a lot to process and familiarize with. Software Development includes all the different processes that are involved from conception of the desired software to the final product. The main processes are: thought process, research, design, programming, documenting, testing and bug fixing. Some of these processes may be repeated to maintain the software. Over the years, there have been an abundance of approaches to [...]

Shift-Left Testing and Continuous Testing

It’s all about the basic test principle; testing early. I can easily mention that implementing agile practices without the shift left approach may lead your software to lack quality or have a delay in its delivery. The shift-left testing emphasizes the “ Testing Early” principle of testing. People who are familiar with software testing principles should be well aware of the seven testing principles. However, Continuous Testing is the process of executing tests as a part of the delivery (DevOps) pipeline in order to get faster feedback on the potential software bugs related to a release as soon as possible.
