What is CI?

About Continuous Integration (CI) The continuous integration model automates the integration and testing by merging all developer working copies to a shared mainline couple of times during a single day. The idea to integrate code several times a day in the master branch may seem difficult or even scary. At first glance, this seems vulnerable to many problems, which would result in the introduction of countless errors in the mainline code. However, as many development teams experienced, there is no need for fear; it works! The code segments used at a given time are very small and therefore easier to [...]

Top 10 Essential Software Testing Skills

# 1 Analytical and logical thinking In order to effectively identify the hidden errors, software testers must be able to analyze the given business situation and judge all the possible scenarios. They should be able to identify and solve unfamiliar problems. This requires someone with strong analytical skills who can validate the application under test. # 2 Critical thinking Critical thinking is a vital skill for a software tester. Testers should be able to ask questions, gather relevant information, understand them effectively and draw his/her own well-reasoned conclusions and solutions. # 3 Basic knowledge A good tester applies knowledge that [...]

What differentiates SDET from a tester?

SDET is short for Software Development/Design Engineer in Testing and nowadays many organizations search for SDET professionals for the development and testing processes of their software.  A tester can be a manual tester or a quality analyzer who is not involved in the software development process. However, SDET participates in the development of high-quality and high-performance code for the automation of test scenarios. He/she may also design the test framework that can be used as a testing tool. Read the following to better understand the differences between SDET and a Tester; SDET is a very competent resource with both development [...]

Local Network Simulation On JMeter

Network Speeds Simulation in JMeter For almost three years, mobile had overtaken desktop traffic. It seems that this trend will continue to rise. But does it change in our lives? That means that our users are on the move. They are not sitting in their comfortable chairs and take benefit of great DSL network speeds. In most cases, mobile device users access the internet via their cellular operator network. The speed, reliability varies depending on the location of the user. You’ll realize that it’s always changing. That means speed varies mostly during the day. So we need to make sure [...]

Shift Left Concept 101

Through time, organizations acknowledged the necessity of Software Testing and the cost of placing this phase at the last stages of the Software Development Lifecycle. It is important to implement testing in the early stages because late discovered bugs require much more effort, time and money to be fixed. In many cases, a critical error detected at the very end of the lifecycle causes a delay on product release that results in a major loss. There are also cases where detection of a bug causes the software to be binned since it’s not even worth the effort to fix the [...]
