STARWEST Testing Machine Learning: Will It Take Over Testing?
Slideshow

Machine learning (ML), a branch of artificial intelligence, is gaining widespread adoption and interest on software development projects. Paul Merrill says that ML isn't typical programming. Algorithms can be changed and checked for accuracy at runtime to “learn” from data. Some companies...

STARWEST Testing Integrate Your Test Automation Tools for More Power
Slideshow

Walk the Expo, and you will see all kinds of test automation tools. Some run scripts. Some communicate with the system under test. Some virtualize system components. Some do interesting things that you may never have considered. Yet, none gives you a complete recipe for testing your...

STARWEST Testing Blunders in Test Automation
Slideshow

In chess, the word blunder means a very bad move by someone who should know better. Even though functional test automation has been around for a long time, people still make some very bad moves and serious blunders. The most common misconception in automation is thinking that manual...

STARWEST Testing Say Goodbye to Flaky Selenium Tests
Slideshow

Selenium has an industry reputation of being a “flaky” tool where individual tests pass, then fail—sometimes with no production changes at all. Such flakiness in your test suites can be extremely difficult, time consuming, and frustrating to debug. The vast majority of these issues stem...

STARWEST Testing Test Cases Are Dead, Long Live Checklists
Slideshow

For testers, creating tests is critical for a healthy testing process, so it is painful to see how boring writing test cases can be. In classical approaches, test cases are overcrowded with words—mostly project information that everyone already knows. What test cases don’t have is...

STARWEST Testing Move from Scripted Manual Testing to Scenario-Based Testing
Slideshow

Think of manually executed test scripts—like pulling a wagon without wheels. Eventually the wagon will make it to the final destination, but the journey itself will be long and painful. Many people think test scripts are outdated because of the long, painful process of writing and running...

STARWEST Testing Mobile Testing: Where to Start Your Journey
Slideshow

Your company has decided to move into the 21st century and is developing a shiny new mobile app. But you don’t know where to start. How many devices do you need to test? Can you take existing tests and modify them? How do you account for conditions such as loss of connectivity, a virtual...

STARWEST Testing Rise of the Machines: Can Artificial Intelligence Terminate Manual Testing?
Slideshow

The state of the art in automated software testing is far from being a replacement for human-guided testing. There is more to testing than setting up preconditions, applying inputs, verifying outputs, and logging the results. Testing requires significant planning, exploring, learning...
