Quality Assurance (QA) is a critical aspect of software development that ensures the end product is as bug-free, functional, and user-friendly as possible. One of the most critical elements of QA is test case design. Writing effective test cases can not only help in identifying defects early but also play a crucial role in optimising the testing effort for time and resource efficiency.
A team of skilled software testers is a huge competitive advantage for any organisation. In this infographic we reveal Bugwolf's time-proven philosophy for attracting the best testing talent, including the exact job ad we use when we need to find A-grade testers.
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...
Change is one of the few constants in the world of software testing. An organisation’s ability to stay on the front foot and adapt to evolving development environments and consumer expectations has implications that stretch far beyond the IT department.
The business environment is changing. Economies are no longer as stable as they once were and so there is far less tolerance of risk than there used to be. Quality assurance has become a focal point for business expansion as businesses try to attract and retain customers by improving service while cutting costs. Software applications in the financial sector in particular, and other areas as well, are now a vital part of customer interaction and retention. This means that companies are demanding faster development cycles while being less tolerant of failure, which is one of the main reasons why agile development is so popular.
Quality assurance is becoming ever more important as digital technology continues to expand its reach. The fact that the Internet continues to spread across the world while IT has become the goto technology for getting things done means that the need to develop and deploy dependable software is increasingly important.
Pleasing every stakeholder can be a problem in software development. Different people have different needs and desires. Some people may need certain functions while others want the application released as soon as possible. It’s important to realize that while it may not be possible to please everyone all the time, quality assurance is the best guarantee of happy stakeholders.
Software development has evolved to a point where the end user has become as important as the application itself. The days of people adapting themselves to software are gone and the need for software to adapt to people has made quality assurance testing a vital part of software development.
