If you’re curious to see which bugs most commonly fly under the radar of traditional testing teams, you’re in luck... our latest infographic summarises the results from every Bugwolf challenge in Q1 of 2017 to reveal the most elusive bugs by device, operating system and bug type.
How often should you test? Naturally, that depends on the risk profile and scope of the release, but the short answer is this... you should test as many times as it takes to give you confidence that your software is working as expected, every time, within your desired specifications. In practical terms, that equates to at least one test while the release is in pre-production, another in pre-production after the staging bugs have been remedied and one in production.
When done right, test automation can lead to significant efficiency and cost improvements. Unfortunately, many organisations fail to maximise the full potential of their automation program due to a number of common challenges. Here's how to overcome them...
Testing is a vital part of software development. Whether testing is done manually or through the use of automation, depends on the circumstances. The choice can be influenced by such things as the project's requirements and the expertise available. However, it usually comes down to some combination of time and money. Like it or not, cost reduction and speed of delivery are both important parts of software development. So, knowing when to test manually and when to use automation can have a considerable effect on the bottom line and the final outcome.
The the latest trends in digital evolution have made it necessary for digital products to travel two separate but interrelated roads if they are to succeed. The first road is complexity. The application of digital technology has spread so far and so fast that it is now called upon to support countless activities that only a few years ago were done manually. This leads to the second road, which is interoperability.
Automating unit tests are essential for testing code integration after check in and build verification. It has value for finding issues when smoke testing new code deployments and executing simple modular functional tests. Automated test creation is software code development, which involves time, money, and ongoing maintenance. It’s the maintenance debt of automation that causes automated test initiatives to fail.
