What Bug Tracker Do Most Software Testers Really Use?

At Testuff, we regularly survey our customers every year to find out what bug trackers they use when testing and developing software. In previous years, we noticed some interesting trends.

Integrating Multiple Bug Trackers into One Unified Testing Platform

Within the software test management world, there exist a range of different bug trackers – from internal customized systems to open source options to high quality commercial trackers.

Each serves a purpose, depending on the exact needs, wants, and desires of both the software testers and the development team.

However, with this variety comes certain […]

Could Better Software Testing Tools Have Prevented Apple’s Map Mishap?

Apple traditionally runs a very tight ship. Its products perform as promised, and leaks about future releases are relatively rare. So when the tech giant does stumble, its missteps are very noticeable.

I’m, of course, talking about the recent iPhone 5 mapping app debacle. One of the blogs that initially helped break the […]

Software Testing Management as a Business Decision

In a previous post, we explored the importance of quality tools for software testing from the vantage point of the actual testers themselves. Better products make for better testing. This, in turn, makes our lives much easier.

But software testing is also a business decision.

Test Management Integration with Bug Trackers

Moving forward to the next level in tools integration, with two-way synchronization.

Test management tools, of all types, have been recently busy adding support for bug trackers integration. Some concentrating on one specific tracker, others adding 2-4 trackers integration support.

Test management and bug tracker – integrated VS integration

Within the software testing world, there exist a range of different tools, such as automation tools, bug tracking, test management and others. While it is possible to select each tool ‘a la carte’, some of the major releases come as all-or-nothing application lifecycle management (ALM) suites that combine all the potential features into one […]

Open-source Security Assessment

Perhaps this is not strictly related to Testuff, but my article with Dr. Carlos Cid was recently published on SearchSecurity.

Hope it might give some of you ideas on evaluating security for open-source as well as closed-source projects. The scope covers more than security-testing, but touches on elements of testing and assessment for security bugs that […]

How not to color your links

We’ll take a short break from the SaaS series to talk about something else that I and my colleagues really care about at Testuff – Usability.

Many of our users notice how simple Testuff is to use, that you really don’t need to read the Testuff help section to wrap your brain around it. We love […]

Why developers shouldn’t test their own code

I f*#$ed up. I wrote a simple script to send post sale emails to our customers, letting them know we are here to help in case they have any questions or suggestions. The script was supposed to pull out registrants who registered over 2 weeks ago and to whom we have not sent such an […]

Hollywood, here they come!

Having seen the celebrity look alike webapp, I had some funny inspiration for testing. Let’s see how well it works and see if the celebrities look like themselves!

My Hollywood Twin, Johnny Depp, only looks like himself by 76%. That sucks for the algorithm developers. On the other hand, this guy has a hundred different faces […]
