  • The Value and Purpose of a Test Coach

    Introducing business-oriented automated testing can involve a huge cultural change. For this we really need a Test Coach role, just like we have agile coaches and scrum masters. In this article we hear from someone living this new role, using Domain Oriented Testing on a daily basis to ensure acceptance tests have full story coverage, and unit tests verify business behavior, not implementation.

  • Testing Microservices: Examining the Tradeoffs of Twelve Techniques - Part 2

    A successful microservice testing strategy must effectively manage the interdependent components involved. This article presents the tradeoffs for twelve testing techniques. Each approach has advantages and disadvantages. Which technique, or blend of techniques, should be used for your application, depends on your context.

  • Testing Microservices: an Overview of 12 Useful Techniques - Part 1

    When building a microservice system, you will need to manage inter-dependent components in order to test in a cost and time effective way. You can use test doubles in your microservice tests that pretend to be real dependencies for the purpose of the test. However, there are many options for implementing this. This article provides an overview and tradeoffs of 12 techniques.

  • Test Automation: Prevention or Cure?

    A lot of teams have the tendency to view test automation as a way of speeding up delivery of software, as this is often the perceived bottleneck within the team, but if they were to take a deeper look at their development practices as a whole, they may get better results.

  • 2018 State of Testing Report

    The State of Testing 2018 report provides insights into the adoption of test techniques, practices, and test automation, and the challenges that testers are facing. It shares results from this year’s testing survey. InfoQ held an interview with the organizers of the State of Testing survey.

  • Regression Testing Strategies: an Overview

    However tedious, regression testing is a powerful gatekeeper protecting product quality. It is present in any project regardless of the development methodology. But how to organize it well? This calls for a quality regression testing strategy that requires good understanding of all aspects of this testing effort (types, methods and approaches). Find out more in our article.

  • Robotic Testing of Mobile Apps for Truly Black-Box Automation

    Axiz is a robotic-test generator for mobile apps. Here, we compare our approach with simulation-based test automation, describe scenarios in which robotic testing is beneficial (or even essential), and tell how we applied Axiz to the popular Google Calculator app.

  • 2017 State of Testing Report

    The State of Testing 2017 report provides insights into the adoption of test techniques, practices, and test automation, and the challenges that testers are facing. This is fourth time that this survey has been done. InfoQ held an interview with the organizers of the State of Testing survey.

  • Q&A on the book Leading the Transformation

    In the book Leading the Transformation: Applying Agile and DevOps Principles at Scale executives Gary Gruver and Tommy Mouser share their experiences with applying lean and agile development methodologies in enterprise development teams.

  • How Agile Has Changed Test Management

    Agile methods have many traditional test management activities built into them. With desired agile team traits like self-organising, role blurring and skill diversification, the nature of test management is changing. We have to question whether the role of Test Manager should exist in effective agile organisations and how the activities which have long made up the role are divested?

  • Perspectives On Agile Software Testing - Book Review

    On the occasion of Selenium's 10th Birthday Celebration, a bunch of ThoughtWorkers have compiled an anthology of essays on testing approaches, tools and culture. This anthology of essays is available as an eBook, titled - "Perspectives on Agile Software Testing".

  • Thoughts on Test Automation in Agile

    Rajneesh Namta shares the lessons he’s learned while automating software tests on a recent Agile project. The techniques he recommends illustrate how the Agile principles we follow when building software apply equally as well to building an automated regression test suite: start small, build iteratively and incrementally, prioritize, focus on value, work transparently, respond quickly to change.
