Test Design Demystified

A long time ago…

If we go back in time, to about 120 years ago, people were riding around in horse wagons or carriages. Then suddenly, the horse were gone and replaced by an engine and a steering wheel. But all in all, it still looked like carriage. A horseless carriage, to be more specific.

What Makes Test Automation Successful?

An important but often underestimated part of software development is testing. Testing is, by definition, challenging. If bugs were easy to find, they wouldn’t be there in the first place (although it should be noted that early in the SLDC various trivial bugs might show up as well of course). A tester has to think outside the box to find the bugs that others have missed. In many cases, understanding the business domain of an application is more crucial for effective testing, as is detailed knowledge of the application itself.

Why Crowdsourcing Your Mobile Testing is a Bad Idea

Find/Discover Quality Bugs that meet your test objectives from a dedicated team

Crowdsourcing offers some advantages to ensure that an application is ready for launch. The speed and flexibility to ramp up a team of testers is really remarkable, but there are some issues that can arise if you do not have a concrete test plan created.  A professional test team is trained to assimilate seamlessly into a development or QA team affording it the opportunity to maintain a constant dialogue when there are ambiguity in the testing tasks with a crowdsource partner your primary motivation is compensation by the number of bugs found. Not all bugs are created equally though. A dedicated test team that has been working with your application through several iterations will know your product and be able to find more impactful bugs. If a bug is tricky to reproduce as well, it might night be worth the tester’s time to track down the issue if there is a higher chance that issue would be invalidated.
