In part two of our codeless automation testing blog series, we dive into Selenium and codeless automation testing, underpinning which technique is best for DevOps teams. While Selenium automation testing has been the de facto choice for web testing, it is notoriously complex and can only be performed by a developer.

Today, innovative technologies are fueling digital transformation across all industries. While these are exciting times, from a DevOps standpoint, these innovations are also posing new challenges for both dev and test teams.

From talking to our own customers, we found that more than 40 percent of
Mobile and web projects are becoming more and more agile, with manual testing methods being replaced by automated processes. It’s a sign of the times: unattended automation in DevOps pipelines is needed for successful development projects today. But which testing tools should you use? Answering this question is critical to building the proper testing strategy and to the continuous testing activities through each phase of the software development lifecycle (SDLC) pipeline. The Two Main Types

The mobile space is highly dynamic, fragmented, and challenging for QA professionals like yourself – especially when it comes to any new major release. On the one hand, these releases provide the opportunity for rich user experiences and improved engagement. However, these advancements mean that testers have to deal with the consequences — namely supporting multiple OS families, devices, and generations.
Plato wrote that “necessity is the mother of invention.” This still holds true today as developers, engineers and testers need their ever-growing test cases to be automated.

It's September and that means that Apple has released its latest, next-generation platform: iOS12. Perfecto is pleased to announce support for testing and developing on iOS12 (GA, or General Availability) using its cloud-based testing platform in utilizing Appium and XCUITest. Based on last year’s adoption of iOS11, we should expect similar (or slightly faster) adoption of iOS12(see below), - which means around 40-50% of users will upgrade within the first month. iOS12 also introduces new devices, which means greater market fragmentation, and as…
