Before taking out your boat or yacht out for sailing, there’s a Pre departure checklist to follow. This list is a long one, and goes from checking your registration papers (valid and present in the boat), all the way to verifying you have all of the required emergency equipment. In between there are dozens of […]
According to 2 collaborative articles from Priceonomics and Redbooth, the 8-hour workday is a myth. Although we’d all like to believe we’re super productive (from 9-ish to 5-ish), the data tell a very different story.
After an exhaustive study of 1.8 million projects across hundreds of thousands of users, Priceonomics and Redbooth determined that:
The most productive […]
It’s now 2018, and we’re ready to begin a brand-new year. But when we looked back at our posts over the previous 12 months, we noticed an interesting trend.
Actually – 3 interrelated trends:
Emerging challenges in the job market
The changing role of software testers
The rise of AI and automation
This coverage wasn’t intentional. We don’t have an […]
It’s December. This means it’s the last post of the year. Much has happened at Testuff in 2017, and we are expecting an exciting and successful 2018. Make no mistake – when we say successful, we are referring to our customers success. Building better software testing tools on our end, means better software testing […]
If you were to create a list of the 10 most important inventions in humankind, you’d probably come up with things like:
The printing press
These all represented foundational leaps in human evolution, allowing us to do amazing things.
But you know what also deserves to be on this list?
The washing machine.
Bear with me.
Prior to this […]
At Testuff, we often highlight the importance of having the “right tools for the job.” As a software tester, for example, those tools might be:
A fully featured platform – like our software testing suite.
Advanced training secured through continued education.
Add-ons to help extend or automate functionality.
It can even be having a stellar team (people aren’t tools, […]
Imagine a software program that can learn on its own. Initially, it starts out as a few dumb lines of code. But over time, the application is able to improve itself through constant iterations.
If it’s able to improve itself at a modest rate of 1% per day, that program will be twice as smart in […]
Software testing is undoubtedly a technical skill – one that requires logic, critical thinking, and analysis.
And few would ever argue with this statement.
But the very best software testers are also artists.
They have a “creativity” itch that they absolutely must scratch. And that deep itch often manifests in unusual ways, which is why these testers tend […]
The “off-season” isn’t something you normally hear about in software development and testing. Beach towns, professional sports, and academia all have natural breaks built into their schedules. But testers and developers work all year-round.
At the macro level, there is no “off-season” for our industry.
But as individual testers, we all have downtime, whether we’re talking about […]
Swedish auto manufacturer, Volvo, has an ambitious goal of reducing accident-related fatalities to 0% by 2020. And central to this mission is the company’s line of self-driving cars. Volvo is already well on its way thanks to on-board detection systems that can help cars automatically avoid moose, deer, and other large game.
But the vehicle manufacturer […]
