As organizations begin to fully embrace the “DevOps way,” the cloud enables everyone involved to work on the same code – writing, testing, conducting quality assurance, deploying and updating – at the same time, regardless of physical location. In this article, Eran Kinsbruner, Chief Evangelist at Perfecto discusses the advantages of cloud-based testing solutions and the challenges teams should prepare for when testing in the cloud.
Testing, testing! This integral part of the development process is often given short shrift. Today, we’re taking a look at five of our favorite open source Java testing tools for unit tests, requirement tests, automated UI tests, and more!
Microservices are in, monoliths are out & everyone should switch to automated testing for CI/CD deployment
Finding out the latest trends for development can be difficult for the average developer. That’s why Atlassian’s recent survey is such a helpful look at what’s going on in the field. Apparently, microservices are in, monoliths are out, and absolutely everyone has to switch to automated testing for CI/CD deployment.
Testing, testing! Are your mobile web apps ready for the big leagues? It’s time to put them through their paces with OpenTest, an open source functional test automation tool with cross-browser support for both Android and iOS.

There are a bunch of misunderstandings in testing, starting with the fact that we never fully understand why we should test code and what is the idea of testing. Software testing is not only necessary; it is one of the foundations of this industry. We caught up with lx-chel Ruiz at JAX London 2018 to debunk some of the testing myths and to talk about the many tools that exist and when they should be used.
Despite the high quality of supportive tools in the field of security testing, this is still unknown territory for many development projects and therefore still has some unused potential. Christian Schneider’s session at DevOpsCon 2017 offers a well-rounded overview of the open-source tools used by security professionals and penetration testers in their daily work on the detection of security vulnerabilities.
Load testing is an important part of systems engineering. In this session, Rob Harrop shows us how to design, construct, execute, verify and analyze a load test.

Testing trends, automation challenges and more. The 2018 survey on testing trends conducted by Dimensional Research under the sponsorship of Sauce Labs, Inc. is out and draws our attention to the main testing trends of 2018 as well as the main challenges faced by development and testing professionals.
Quality code is highly valued in the PHP community. You’ll rarely find untested libraries on GitHub. Two problems that developers encounter again and again during testing are the handling of file operations, as well as testing built-in PHP functions such as time() or exec() on certain expectations. In this article, Tommy Mühle explains a few solutions for such cases.
Automated testing can speed up the testing process, but manual tests can help quickly familiarise testers with the product’s features. Is one approach better than the other? Jason Silberman investigates.
