Software Quality and Offshore Outsourcing: What You Need to Know

Software Testing | By Timothy Joseph | March 14, 2019

Video conferencing came into the picture for Agile development teams. It is the optimal, most efficient form of communication currently available. With a free platform such as Skype, Google Hangouts, or Google Duo, you can speak face-to-face with anyone throughout the internet-connected world from the comfort of your own (home?) office.

That fact overcomes the distance involved in outsourcing your QA process offshore and leaves you in complete control of your software quality. Your Agile team can now spread halfway around the world, yet still share the fast iteration and close collaboration between developers and QA testers needed to ensure a quality build.

Software Testing | By Amanda Sturdevant | March 13, 2019

Query languages (QLs) are designed to query data sources for fetching and performing various operations on stored data. Basically, a query is a request for information from a database, and the language is the way it is.
Nowadays, there is a dramatic shift toward open source QLs as they enable more enhancements and reusability. GraphQL, for example, was developed by Facebook back in 2012 and is now an open-sourced QL.

Good QA does a far better job than good PR in keeping your cybersecurity company out of the headlines. Behind every news story about a data breach or high-profile hack is a vulnerable product that should have been strengthened during the QA process. A good PR machine can try to spin your public disaster into a promise for improvement and the strictest future standards. It is far better, however, to not stretch your customer’s faith in the first place.

Automated quality assurance (QA) testing is a rigorous, thorough process that can help spot defects better than manual testing alone. Automated tools offer higher-quality testing, can expand your QA coverage, and can help you release software faster.

It can make your future releases better by ensuring software runs correctly, efficiently, and effectively before release.
