Infographic: Test Environment and Challenges Ahead

Nowadays, particularly following the dramatic increase in demand for test automation in the software industry, many challenges came along. The main reason for this is; insufficient and improper management of test environments. When companies start executing test automation projects without professional help, they encounter with problems related to the test environment, which entails the highest risk that will possibly lead to a failure in the whole test automation project. Let's explore this issue with the following infographic;

Infographic: Shift-Left Testing and the Testinium Effect

When it comes to shift-left testing; the thing that matters the most is; testing early. Implementing agile practices without the shift left approach may lead your software to lack quality or have a delay in its delivery. Check out this infographic to learn more about the shift-left testing approach and the Testinium effect.

Join us on December 12 for our next meetup: “Testing with BDD and Automation with Gauge”

“Testing with BDD and Automation with Gauge” is a meetup and open space for software testing professionals who love learning new things about software testing! Join us as we discuss the hot topic of Agile Testing world; Behavior Driven Development (BDD) combined with Gauge which is a free open source test automation framework that enables creating tests that are easy to read and develop. Come to our next meetup to discover how you can automate BDD style using Gauge and enjoy networking while you have a snack and a drink provided to you by Testinium B.V.!

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 [...]

Testinium in partnership with ING Bank, is one of the finalists in “Best Functional Test Automation Project” of European Software Testing Awards 2018

We are proud to be selected as one of the finalists of "Best Functional Test Automation Project of the Year Award" in partnership with ING Bank, for the best implementation of a functional software testing project in 2018. As indicated by European Software Testing Awards judges, for the “Best Test Automation Project – Functional” category, they were looking for the best use of automation in a functional software testing project, a well-developed test suite of test scripts and clearly defined and verified project goals with stated achievements and successful results. Additionally, finalists were required to show evidence of overcoming project [...]

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. [...]

Test Automation: Who Should Construct and Who Should Implement?

Selenium library has a story of 15 years. This idea first emerged in Chicago, when Jason Huggins laid the foundation of Selenium as a “Time and Expenses” application at Thoughtworks company in 2004. Some experiments may have been done before; but the idea of ​​automating software testing has become so easy to implement for the first time. About 15 years ago, mobile technologies were developing rapidly, but it was still quite primitive. It was only a few years later that as a result of the peak in mobile phone sales and technology migration, mobile technologies became the new focus point. [...]
