User Journey, A Way to Prioritize Your Test Strategy

In the current age of delivering highly complex digital applications, in a competitive market for high-expectation end users, maintaining quality seems like a daunting task. Furthermore, agile cycles are shrinking to meet competitive deadlines. A typical product owner needs to balance 3 sprint investments (frankly, on a daily basis): innovation, tech debt and bugs, and testing. They all need to be optimized. In the case of testing that means considering: efficient parallel executions, ongoing availability

A Winning Recipe for Open Source Test Automation Frameworks

There’s no doubt that the bulk of software delivery today relies on test automation through open-source test frameworks. In a recent blog post, we highlighted some of the main differences around the leading frameworks such as Appium, Selenium, Calabash, Espresso and XCTest UI. As a quick summary, the key points that were identified as critical for success in adopting an open-source is to have these 3 robust ingredients supporting that framework: 24x7 available and elastic

Testing Functionality, Responsiveness and Rendering on Geico’s Responsive Website

Responsive web development requires detailed attention when incorporating testing practices; the same (hopefully) code is intended to render on many screen sizes and operating systems/versions. In addition, HTML5 functionality may assume access to local sensors to drive a richer and streamlined experience, for example, automatic location detection, further complicating the responsive web test strategy. The testing matrix becomes sizable, while the time-to-test shrinks from increasing competitive pressure and the transition to agile. In this article I'll

Up for a Challenge: Test Automation with Appium for #30daysofMobileTesting

In the spirit of #30daysofmobiletesting, (which you should check out if you haven't already) I recorded a cool test automation video to show you. The video checks off challenge number 8, "write automated checks with a tool like Espresso, Calabash or Appium." I did it with iOS and Android, so I guess that checks off number 10 also, which is "perform an update test on iOS or Android."  :) Day 8 Challenge: Test Automation with a tool like

Use the Mobile Test Pyramid to Release Better Apps

Anyone involved in software testing and software test automation should know the test automation pyramid introduced by Mike Cohn. I will expand on this subject in this post, which contains excerpts from my book "Hands-On Mobile App Testing" published with Pearson Education. The typical testing pyramid consists of three layers, as you can see in the image below. At the bottom, there's the automated unit-testing layer; in the middle sits the automated integration testing layer,
