  • Test Automation in the World of AI & ML

    An in-depth look at the criteria & requirements for Functional Test Automation in the agile world, and the capabilities you should build in your custom framework, or should exist the tools you choose. Anand Bagmar explores aspects like readability, reuse, debugging / rca, CI, Test Data, Parallel Execution, integration with other tools & libraries, free Vs open-source and support.

  • Headless Selenium Browsers

    Selenium is a well-known, powerful tool for automated testing in web browsers. While Selenium Web driver supports all the major browsers, you don’t always want the costs of testing in a real browser.

  • Using Golang to Build Microservices at The Economist: A Retrospective

    Microservices written in Go was a key component of a new system that would enable The Economist to deliver scalable, high performing services and quickly iterate new products. Go's baked in concurrency and API support along with its design as a static, compiled language enabled a distributed eventing system. Overall, The Economist team's experience with Go has been a positive experience.

  • James Bach on a Career in Testing and Advice for New Players

    In this interview, James Bach explores making software testing legible and how to assess the values of your testing work and risk in a software product. He talks about how to overcome the testing automation pesticide paradox, and how should we leverage AI and ML in our testing. With more than 30 years software testing experience, Bach gives three pieces of advice to software testing beginners.

  • Testing Programmable Infrastructure - a Year On

    Programmable infrastructure is becoming widespread. There are very specific domain issues that make testing it tricky. This article looks at the evolution of tooling and approaches used to address it.

  • How to Achieve Collaboration as a Key Driver for Continuous Testing

    Far too often the dream of a successful digital transformation shatters against a limited, team-centric continuous testing strategy. This article describes how testing must be applied to fit not only agile teams but also the whole enterprise, why collaboration is the key enabler and how different testing techniques work together for overall success.

  • Improving Testability of Java Microservices with Container Orchestration and a Service Mesh

    In enterprise test scenarios, software needs to be tested in the same way as it will run in production. This article provides a practical demonstration of testing Java microservices that are running on Kubernetes with the Istio service mesh. K8s service abstractions enable mocking, and Istio enables us to re-route traffic and inject faulty responses or delays to verify our services' resiliency.

  • How Contract Tests Improve the Quality of Your Distributed Systems

    Catching bugs at the end of a development cycle is costly, but how do you incrementally test complex distributed systems? In this article, Marcin Grzejszczak looks at an integration testing approach for communication between components. He reviews contract testing, and Spring Cloud Contract, as one solution.

  • Architecturally Aligned Testing

    Testing microservices should not be done in a separate test phase, by a dedicated test team, but instead collaboratively by cross-functional teams. There is a shift left in testing to ensure that teams stay autonomous and a shift right in testing towards exploration and experimentation. Continuous Testing and a culture of experimentation are enablers to release microservices fast and reliably.

  • Q&A on The Digital Quality Handbook

    The Digital Quality Handbook explores the challenges of testing mobile and web applications and shows how to apply agile practices to deliver quality at speed. Some of the topics covered are test automation, sizing mobile testlabs, addressing test flakiness, crowdsourced testing, performance testing, and applying DevOps practices.

  • MyHeritage Releases to Production

    This article explores the Continuous Delivery journey at MyHeritage, from painful, time-consuming manual releases, to a fully automated deployment pipeline.

  • Hit or Miss: Reusing Selenium Scripts in Random Testing

    Just like during test execution process using an ‘exploratory’ technique, which is guided by a great deal of solid analytical thinking and a good portion of randomness, we can reuse or automate scripts to achieve similar results. All you need is a well-designed test automation solution and a bit of patience. Read the article to learn how you can use this approach in your testing activities.
