THE QUALITY BLOG
With QA being the core business of SYVE, we are naturally excited to recognize and celebrate World QA Day.
Quality assurance engineers are quite often perceived as master bug hunters. They are fearless, opinionated, and always ready to enable a destructive mindset. However, intentions matter. We intend to support the team in delivering top quality to the end users of our systems. But does it only involve catching bugs?
Have you ever wondered what agile regression testing means and how to do it well in the IT industry? Whenever we introduce new functionality or an improvement, we need to make sure that existing functionality is not broken, which is something we achieve by regression testing. In agile, code updates happen more often so regression testing is of big importance, it must be effective, have good coverage, and prevent shipping any critical bugs to production. Today, our colleague Dalila Terzić, who is in the position of Technical Test Lead and has been in our team for more than four years, will talk about the significance of regression, which is a very important part of the testing process in order to improve your knowledge about the system under the test and have a more effective business in the QA world.
Automating manual tests for a software application helps reduce significant costs of a test cycle where a lot of the test steps involve repetition of the same actions. The prime candidate tests in a test cycle for automation are regression tests and smoke tests. By automating these you save a lot of resources and mainly the test cycle duration.
Each framework for your business has its benefits, and not every framework can be considered a "one size fits all" solution. When it comes to choosing which framework to use and why, you may come to a dilemma as to which to choose, and for this very reason we are here to help and better explain this educational theme. Our colleague Omer, who had the chance to work as a QA on a variety of projects and in a variety of teams within our company for a long time now, wrote this excellent blog that will guide you on how an organization or team evaluates what methodology and framework is the best fit for them and their client needs. Omer has been with us for more than three years, and through different ways of working and different approaches, he has seen how everything affects the teams and their deliverables, and he wants to share his experience now through this quality blog with you.
Explaining how testing works requires more than a blog post but in order to explain better how testing functions to an audience interested in working in the QA industry, our colleagues with many years of experience have prepared step-by-step situations and stories that will undoubtedly benefit each of you. This time, we got one of the crucial things for all future IT technicians in the field of quality assurance if you want to produce admirable work with good results.
This year's spring competition is over and we could not have had more fun. This year we invited our closest partners Reeinvent and Codescene to participate in the fun and they could not have done better! Reeinvent's team The Slowcookers won it all! And we kindly regret that we gave them the ironic name now that we see the end results. A big congratulations to you!
Last week we hosted a gaming event for our QA-network in Stockholm at the largest gaming center - SPACE - Contemporary Digital Culture Center. In the same building, just a few floors over are also where the Stockholm office is located. We are proud to have a strong collaboration with SPACE and enjoy having access to the gaming space occasionally.
System Verification hub in Warsaw took part of the tech conference test:fest in Wrocław, Poland. Many innovative IT projects are created in Wrocław by experienced specialists with enormous knowledge.
