I Find Your Lack of Faith Disturbing: What DevTest Teams Can Learn From Darth Vader’s Wins and Losses

Developers of all skill sets learned a lot from Star Wars, whether they realized it or not, as we covered in our last post. However, what about another critical role in the firm, the DevTest team lead? Darth Vader, one of the most well-known figures in pop culture, happens to be a manager and offers a lot in the way of learning from others – both mistakes and failures. Don’t: Ignore risks that seem small.

Continuous Quality Fables: How to Keep Luke Out Of Your Death Star

Arguably one of the greatest defeats in sci-fi history is the scene above, in which Luke Skywalker pilots the equivalent of a space motorcycle towards an uncovered exhaust port, and – using his Jedi powers – bends space bullets into the Death Star, causing an explosion that destroys the entire moon-sized military base of Darth Vader.   This scene set mind-controlled bending bullets into science fiction canon forever, and also was the most dramatic demonstration

Verizon Nexus 6 Available for Testing On in Perfecto Mobile Cloud

In order to keep your mobile app up to date in the demanding and constantly evolving mobile market, it is important to keep up with device releases and changes, operating system updates and end-user feedback. Even if your mobile application source code remained unchanged, but a new reference device (such as the Nexus 6 coming from Verizon tomorrow) has launched, you better make sure that your mobile apps works - if you don't your end-users

Apple Watch is Bringing Us Places that We Don’t Even Know About Yet

Apple did what Apple does best yesterday, they previewed a new device which was not the first of its kind (we've got a lot of smart watches in our cloud!) but definitely the most anticipated. And as the founder of Perfecto Mobile, getting to play with gadgets is a huge perk of the job for me. Apple, Android, bring it on - I love my gadgets. I'm particularly enthused about Apple Watch because I truly

Leveraging Real Network Conditions As Part Of The Continuous Quality Processes

As the digital experience becomes key for organizations to offer end-users and a high user experience based on mobile moments, it is important to understand the environment in which mobile apps are "living" in.   We have taken to calling a mobile app's environment as a wind tunnel - many different conditions and "states" occur, causing mobile apps (Web and Native) running on various screens (Smartphones, Tablets, Wearables) to behave differently with functionality and performance

3 Things Every Mobile App Team Should Know About Third Party Content

During the effort to integrate SmartBear’s AlertSite UXM into our Continuous Quality Lab's Monitoring solution we swapped stories about our own experiences with poorly performing apps. Two came to mind, the WatchESPN failure during the USA versus Germany World Cup match and a mobile banking app based on a third party platform. These discussions prompted the focus on third party content's impact on performance and availability. For mobile apps, performance is only as strong as

The ‘Aha!’ Moment of Continuous Quality

We have heard, multiple times, about the pressures that teams are under to deliver mobile applications faster and faster. Delivering apps faster sounds like a simple need, but when analyzed we see that the challenges are not linear and often require paradigm shift to achieve the required result.

Mobile App Development: Continuous Integration or Eventual Failure

What got you here won’t get you there. Not only is this the title of Marshall Goldsmith’s best-selling business book, it’s also what every mobile app developer should be telling themselves about traditional enterprise development methodologies. So what will help mobile app developers get to the next level? In our view, a commitment to agile development and continuous integration (CI). But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what Gartner analysts Van L. Baker and
