If you’ve been following the meteoric rise of Snapchat since 2012 - or their subsequent drop-off after their app overhaul - you’ve seen a young, disruptive company experience some growing pains. A leaked 6000-word, internal memo from its CEO, Evan Spiegel, offers some frank and straightforward insights into difficulties which were caused by the company’s app redesign. According to TechCrunch, a humble Spiegel admitted to impatient strategic moves. Perhaps taking a page out of
Exciting things are happening here at Perfecto! Today we announced the upcoming release of our second book, Continuous Testing for DevOps Professionals. Debuting next week at Jenkins World | DevOps World, and spearheaded by Perfecto’s own Eran Kinsbruner, we collaborated with the best and brightest in the industry to provide in-depth guidance on implementing and sustaining continuous testing (CT) across the DevOps pipeline, how to address testing challenges, and offered insight into preparing
The CT recipe: people, process, technology No matter where you work, you're probably already using some type of agile method. However, recent research has shown that maturing from agile to DevOps is easier said than done. It turns out that one of the biggest stumbling blocks for implementing DevOps is the lack of Continuous Testing (CT). Without CT, Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery simply can't work. Given that a large majority of organizations are
Fragmented Android OS Landscape Creates Challenges for App Developers Perfecto today announced fully testing capabilities for Android 9 Pie. Perfecto customers can immediately test the newest release from Google across the Perfecto Continuous Quality Lab. What’s New in Android Pie Released yesterday, Android Pie introduces a new gesture-based “swipe” system interface similar to the iPhone X, a new dashboard to track usage — again much like the Apple screen time feature, an adaptive battery feature
When planning for a continuous testing strategy, leadership should have a comprehensive plan for all teams and individuals. The more you tailor each of these aspects to fit your organization, the more likely you are to succeed in your continuous testing efforts. 1. Number of projects and their type (mobile, web, responsive web, progressive web, etc.) Do you have parallel development teams? A team for native, web/mobile? A team to maintain test code? WIth the never ending number of device and browser permutations, there’s a lot of code to maintain just to keep your current features and user experience functioning properly across all platforms.
OK, it’s not exactly a corporate doomsday scenario. Still, a recent story from the BBC is a perfect illustration of why testing real-world scenarios needs to be a part of your testing strategy. The sample size might be too small to draw any definitive conclusions about humanity but, if this group is any indication, you might want to keep an extra eye on your 11-year-old. So, what happened? In a nutshell, some students (aged 5-15 years old) were given a standardized spelling test - on their laptops - online. Have you guessed where this is headed? Well, it appears that some of the students in primary 7 (roughly 6th grade for us Americans) were touched by the light of inspiration. They turned on their online spell checkers.
More Upgrades Than You Can Shake a Stick At Don’t be fooled by the version number. Appium 1.8 is a major release and it packs the new features to prove it. If you use Appium and you haven’t already upgraded, you’re going to want to. Our own Eran Kinsbruner hosted a webinar with Jonathan Lipps, Appium project lead and founder of Cloud Grey, to give us the low-down on this awesome new release.
With the rapid pace of technology growth today, it’s no surprise that organizations are under constant pressure to deliver working software faster than ever before. But at what cost? What were once well thought out test cases are now giving way to loose requirements and software that is riddled with bugs. This is where CA's Agile Requirements Designer (ARD) is helping companies make exponential progress by providing a tool for end-to-end requirements gathering, which then

As enterprises focus on mobile business, going to market with an application that might have a critical bug or usability issue is not an option.
