  • How Testing Changed When Moving from Waterfall to Agile and DevOps

    An interview with Laurent Py about why decided to transition to agile and DevOps and the benefits that they are getting from that, the "testing swing", how you can measure behavior change to find out if a feature is valuable, on the strategy and approach for test automation and what he expects that the future will bring us in testing.

  • Managing Health and Quality of Applications with qMap

    QASymphony has released qMap, a visual mapping solution for agile testers of cloud, mobile, big data and IoT apps.
