The Results of our Testing in Continuous Delivery Survey

This survey takes an in-depth look at teams that practice DevOps and compares it to teams that don’t practice DevOps.

By Michael Hackett, LogiGear Corporation

For 2017, LogiGear is conducting a 4-part survey to assess the state of the software testing practice as it stands today.

This is a 4-part series to mirror LogiGear Magazine’s issues this year.


VIDEO SERIES: Testing in DevOps & Continuous Testing

By Michael Hackett, LogiGear Corporation

If you haven’t already caught a glimpse, we announced in January the Testing in DevOps and Continuous Testing videos series, available on YouTube!




To adapt with the fast software delivery pace in today’s world, the same automation test suites should be able to run on a range of various platforms: different Operation System versions, different Application under test versions, different localization versions, etc. All while keeping the test development and maintenance effort at the minimum.

This article will cover 10 common mobile app testing mistakes to avoid when you are a software tester working in a mobile app testing and development environment. The 10 points may help you to start your mobile testing activities if you are new to mobile testing or they may help you to recap your existing mobile testing approaches.

The Ins & Outs of Mobile App Testing

6.2Sep-2014-04Removing the barriers to move and better mobile testing.

By Jim Cowart 

Over the last decade, application testing has continually proved itself to be an important concern. When done well, testing can drastically reduce the number of bugs that make it into your release code (and thus actually affect your users). In addition, good testing approaches will help your team catch bugs earlier in the development lifecycle – resulting in a savings of both time and money (not to mention reputation with your users). Code that has good test coverage enables you and your team to make changes and introduce new features to your app without the fear of it breaking existing functionality.


Glossary: Cloud Testing

Cloud Computing: Cloud computing is a concept used to describe a variety of computing concepts that involve a large number of computers connected through a real-time communication network such as the Internet. In science, cloud computing is a synonym for distributed computing over a network, and means the ability to run a program or application on many connected computers at the same time. The phrase also more commonly refers to network-based services, which appear to be provided by real server hardware, and are in fact served up by virtual hardware, simulated by software running on one or more real machines. Such virtual servers do not physically exist and can therefore be moved around and scaled up (or down) on the fly without affecting the end user – arguably, rather like a cloud.


Agile Methods and Software Testing

Agile methods were developed as a response to the issues that waterfall and V-model methodologies had with defining requirements and delivering a product that turned out to be not what the end user actually wanted and needed.


A software tester’s role in traditional software development methodology, a.k.a waterfall & the V-model can be generally summarized as:

  • Finding defects in development products, such as requirements and design documents
  • Proving that the software meets these requirements
  • Finding where the software under test breaks (whether that is through verification of requirements or validation that it is fit for purpose)

Letter From The Editor – July 2012

What is testing in Agile? It’s analogous to three blind men attempting to describe an elephant by the way it feels to them. Agile is difficult to define and everyone has their own perspective of what Agile is. When it comes to testing and Agile the rules are what you make them.

Agile is ideas about software teams working together with no details. SCRUM is a framework for managing software projects. Extreme Programming (XP) has practices about making the product and coding. Agile says nothing about testing. SCRUM definitely says nothing about testing. There is no role in SCRUM called Tester, QA, or QE! Extreme Programming comes the closest, but the focus of testing is on developer focused TDD (test driven development) through unit testing. The work of traditional testers is not defined by any of these famous practices or frameworks. We are making it up as we go.
