Letter From The Editor – March 2011

I have been excited about this issue since I included it in the 2011 editorial calendar. This issue of LogiGear Magazine dives into an exploration of agile automation—from the most efficient methods for test automation, to skill sets and better preparation for test teams, and even to understanding the variety of tools in question. We are preparing you for the discussions and implementations to successfully automate agile projects.

The problem of automating agile projects revolves around the agile need for speed paired with lean, light-weight documentation—ideals withholding the keys to successful automation from the past: time and information. How can test teams be agile, fast, and lean, yet still automate more in less time with less prep time and less information?

McAfee Visits Ho Chi Minh City

Lolita Guevarra

McAfee representatives from India and Japan visited LogiGear Viet Nam from Feb 21 – 25. Their week-long stay entailed debriefing LogiGear staff on McAfee MX Logic and Mobile Security for the team to begin testing. Project manager Tien Nguyen and project lead Hung Le oversaw the sessions between LogiGear and McAfee.

As a good hostess, Nguyen made sure between meetings that Masaki Sumida of Japan and Gargeya Doddaiah of India maneuvered throughout Viet Nam’s infamous traffic to expand their palette at local eateries and awaken their senses within the country’s vibrant culture.

Do Testers Have to Write Code?

Do testers have to write code?

For years, whenever someone asked me if I thought testers had to know how to write code, I’ve responded: “Of course not.”

The way I see it, test automation is inherently a programming activity. Anyone tasked with automating tests should know how to program.

But not all testers are doing test automation.

Automation Testing Tools in Full View

Bogdan Bereza-Jarocinski

A trainer, quality specialist and owner of VictO (2004), Bereza-Jarocinski co-founded Swedish SAST (1995), Polish SJSI (2003), and Polish SPIN (2006). He is also founder and secretary general of ADPQB (2008). For more information on his academy, visit www.victo.eu.

In  order to make the right choices among tools, you must be able to classify them. Otherwise, any choice would be at best haphazard. Without functioning classification, you would not be able to understand new tools fast, nor come up with ideas of using, or creating new tools.
