Continuous integration is a practice to test every change of code done in repository. Further, the process of Continuous Deployment of builds help in achieving the Sprint targets on time. Faster builds speed up the whole system and minimize the integration issues.
As a conclusion, we can say that Continuous deployment of builds save time for both Dev and QA teams.
We all know, that the first generation of UI automation tools are ruling the market since last two decades and most commonly the automation engineers manually identify the UI elements to develop the automation test scripts in these tools. The main challenges being faced by most of the automation engineers is the maintenance of test scripts in-case of UI changes and ensuring the maximum test coverage through automation testing. To solve these challenges there is a second generation of automation tools which entered the market, which are smart enough to automatically adapt the test scripts in-case of UI changes and also, develop own test scenarios based upon the flows automated the user. So, our current newsletters will discuss about such tools.
The "Internet Of Things" is leading to a tremendous change in the world by enabling connection of devices, sensors and appliances with huge exchange of data. This requires new learning verticals for the performance testers to evaluate the performance of any IOT eco-system.
We have gathered some useful information which can help you to understand the change in performance testing approach and the areas of learning before commencing performance testing of IOT eco-system.
We continue to support our community with useful tips and knowledge base. Keep exploring more on performance testing with our quarterly performance testing newsletters.
Mobile adoption trends change with every season. Summer of 2018 brings a new change in these trends. In this newsletter, we bring to you the latest figures of market usage of phones, tablets, vendors, operating systems and have compared their usage trends being followed in the markets of the United States versus rest of the World. Software Engineering teams will find this comparison statistics helpful in devising the device testing matrix for planning the releases of their products across the globe.
In this newsletter, we would like to bring the concepts that help you to understand, how one can automate React and Angular JS based web applications.
The growth in cloud platforms has made cloud security testing a very crucial step in security assessment of cloud applications.There are some legal and technical complexities involved in security testing of such applications. Cloud security assessment is a complete evaluation of hosted application as well as platform itself. In this letter we talk about how can we do that along with some highlights from RSA conference and GDPR.
Smartphones today have evolved from merely a communication device to a multi-functional tool which makes life easier. A study by Statista reveals that 4.93 billion people use smartphone applications for daily needs, banking, video streaming, antivirus, and much more.
This outspread of smartphones creates the need for effective performance testing of mobile applications. For example, if a person is seeking help through a healthcare application to call an ambulance, the slow responding application could lead to loss of life.
Business success is also related to performance of a smartphone application and any slowness in the application's transaction could lead to an opportunity for their competitors. Hence, we have come up with useful information about performance testing for mobile apps and evaluated “LoadView” – a performance testing tool.

In this era of AI, machine learning and IoT, APIs are playing a crucial role in enabling these complex technologies provide intelligent and seamless user experience. APIs are emerging at a rapid pace. The current metrics show a market of 20 billion connected devices around the world, and this number is forecast to grow more than 50 billion by 2020. All these devices are connected through APIs, which makes it a raw material for the connected world.
Many leading web applications are moving their web experience toward APIs because the independence and modularity of APIs are helping to speed-up development processes and improve productivity in complex technologies. About a few years ago, the trend was mobile first, followed by web, and then came the APIs. Today, the trends have inclined towards APIs first, then mobile, and finally the web. This shift has driven us towards making API testing the theme of this newsletter for our readers.
When was the last time you heard the word "NoSQL Database"? This word is heard every second now and is a widely used term in every IT organization and across different industry verticals. This term signifies the way technological changes are happening due to huge data being generated through various means (IoT, Social Media, Machine Learning etc.). In this newsletter, we bring you the concepts that help us understand NoSQL techniques, categories, how it works, testing strategies, and challenges so that you can employ the right kind of approach.
