  • 2020 State of Testing Survey: Call for Participation

    The 2020 State of Testing survey is now seeking participation, and aims to provide insights into how the testing profession develops and to recognize testing trends. Anyone completing the survey will receive a complimentary copy of the State of Testing 2020 report once it is published.

  • Live Recorder: Debugging C++, Rust, and Go with Capture and Replay of Nondeterministic Data

    Early in the year the Undo team released Live Recorder 5, a “software flight recorder technology” for C, C++ and Go applications that enables the capture of all non-deterministic data within an application’s execution for debugging purposes. The resulting recording supports the replay of events in time, backwards and forwards, when looking for and fixing bugs.

  • Usability Testing and Testing APIs with Hallway Testing

    Hallway testing can be used to enhance the usability of products and make your UX better. You can also use it to test APIs as Ewa Marchewka, head of software integration and test department at Nokia, presented at TestCon Europe 2019. It’s cheap, straightforward, there’s no need for complicated tools, and it’s fast, getting feedback from the end-user almost instantly.

  • From Waterfall to Agile at NAV Test Centre of Excellence

    Changing how we work from waterfall to agile is all about envisioning the goals, focusing on success factors and then surviving the transit, said Torstein Skarra at TestCon Europe 2019. The Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) has moved from project-based waterfall and six releases per year to agile cross-function autonomous teams with several releases per day, per team.

  • Writing Tests for CSS Is Possible! Gil Tayar at ReactiveConf 2019

    Gil Tayar, senior architect and developer relations at Applitools, recently presented at ReactiveConf 2019 in Prague the specific issues behind CSS testing and how they can be addressed through methodology and tooling.

  • The Ethical Role Testers Can Have

    Testers should step up outside of only doing quality level verification and be the ambassadors of ethical change, said Michal Buczko at TestCon Europe 2019. Ethics and integrity are becoming more and more important. Ensuring that employees understand appropriate ways to address daily ethical issues can have a major impact on your project outcome and your relationship with customers.

  • Accessibility Testing: Convincing Your Product Owner

    Accessibility testing is just the right thing to do; the internet and e-services are a place for people to feel and interact equally, so our software should not exclude people, argued Martin Tiitmaa at TestCon Europe 2019.

  • WebAssembly Source Code Can Now Be Debugged Outside the Browser with GDB and LLDB

    Mozilla recently demonstrated debugging of WebAssembly binaries outside the browser, using standard debuggers like GDB and LLDB. Debugging WebAssembly code in the same execution environment that is used in production allows developers to catch and diagnose bugs that may not arise in a native build of the same code.

  • Octant: Local and Real-Time Dashboard for Kubernetes Workloads

    VMware has open-sourced Octant, a tool to help developers understand how their applications are running in a Kubernetes cluster. Developers can graphically visualize Kubernetes objects dependencies, forward local ports to a running pod, inspect pod logs, and navigate through different clusters. Moreover, users can extend Octant’s capabilities by installing or authoring a plugin.

  • Introduction to Stateful Property Based Testing - Lambda Days 2019

    Tomasz Kowal, tech lead at ClubCollect, presented at Lambda Days 2019 an introduction to stateful property based testing. Property-based testing helped major companies find bugs which were not caught through example-based testing. Stateful property-based testing leverages an underlying model of the system under test to generate interesting test sequences, increasing the likelihood of finding bugs.

  • Slack Shares Strategy Used to Load-Test New Encryption Service

    Slack’s engineering team has revealed the load-testing strategy that has become a critical part of their continuous delivery pipeline, and suggests it promotes greater ownership by engineers. While the Slack engineers stated they had minimal load-testing experience, they built it from scratch using Go and used a methodical approach that offers a roadmap for engineers facing similar challenges.

  • Smashtest: New Web App Testing DSL Focusing on Speed

    Peter Tesler recently announced the first major release of Smashtest, a new domain-specific language for describing and deploying test cases. Smashtest strongly focuses on improving tester productivity by expressing succintly in the language the repetitive testing chores performed by developers. The new language comes with a test runner which runs tests in parallel, and a REPL.

  • Barriers and Approaches for DevOps Evolution at 1st DevOpsDays Portugal

    Ten years after the first DevOpsDays conference in Ghent, the evolution of DevOps and organizations trying to adopt it was at the forefront of the first DevOpsDays conference in Portugal. On the first day of the conference, a mix of local and international speakers addressed the barriers to DevOps adoption, shift left testing, team patterns, and more.

  • Quality and Culture: Learnings from Other Disciplines and Industries

    We can gain by learning about other industries such as aviation and healthcare, and studying other disciplines, argued Conor Fitzgerald, software tester at Poppulo, at RebelCon.io 2019. Aviation has a history of continually learning from its mistakes, whereas in healthcare, culture and bias seem to challenge learning and continuous improvement.
