The State of Continuous Testing in DevOps
Posted by Scott Fitzpatrick in Continuous TestingDevOps

If you work in DevOps, you probably already know why continuous testing is valuable. Continuous testing, which refers to the use of automated tests whenever possible within the application delivery pipeline, provides end-to-end automated testing that leads to higher application quality while preserving the delivery schedule. (It can help improve security and performance, too, as automated tests [...]

Easily Run 50,000 to 200,000 Tests with Parallel Test Execution in Automation

At some point in test automation, every organization runs into a common problem: too many automated UI tests take too long to execute. But there is a solution…executing tests in parallel. In fact, this is the most powerful way to speed up suite execution. In a recent test, I was able to reduce my test suite execution time by over 500%. How did I do it? Simply by combining the Sauce Labs [...]

Best Practices for Working with Test Data
Posted by Scott Fitzpatrick in Continuous TestingSoftware Development & Testing

We live in a world where data is king. Although you might not think that data has a huge role to play in software testing, it does. The reason? Because software testing is only productive if the data produced by the tests is used effectively. That means that if you do not properly analyze and interpret data from tests, you might as well not be performing tests at all. If you run just a few tests, [...]

That’s especially true as we flip the calendar to 2019 and kick off the last year (can [...]

The Many Flavors of Software Testing

“Did you test your code?” It’s a simple question, and one that may seem to have a simple answer. But in practice, the answer is not simple. Software testing takes many forms, it should occur at multiple stages in a development project, and it varies in its activities. In fact, it has evolved into modern practices of test-driven development (where you define how to test before [...]
