Reading Recommendations # 32

The 32nd issue of the reading recommendation contains 6 posts. This issue contains again an article from Katrina Clokie about “Accessibility & Usability Testing Pathway”. Katrina collected again very useful information about the topic of accessibility and usability testing. Her post is similar to Mobile Testing Pathway (katrinatester.blogspot.de/2015/08/mobile-testing-pathway.html) which was part of the last reading recommendations. I really like this format and I hope there will be more posts like this.
Furthermore, this issue contains post about topics like “Rhythm of Testing: Hanging with the Cool Kids and Self-worth”, “Software Testing is not for Attention Seekers”, “How a bug in Visual Studio 2015 exposed my source code on GitHub and cost me $6,500 in a few hours” and there is a post from the Google Blog announcing that Android Wear now works with iPhones.

Enjoy reading the posts and send me posts that are worth reading and I will mention you and link to your social links or blog.

[Reblog] Scaling Mobile at XING: Platform, Framework and Domain Teams

At XING, my current employer we had to handle some exciting challenges. We had to scale the whole mobile development as well as mobile testing from two small mobile teams (Android and iOS) to the whole software development department at XING.

My colleague Alexey Krivitsky wrote a great blog post about “Scaling Mobile at XING: Platform, Framework and Domain Teams” at InfoQ. In his post he describes our learnings from the last year, how we scaled, what we have learned and what structural changes had to be done in order to grow from 2 mobile teams to 10.

Enjoy reading this very interesting article. If you have similar problems in your organisation, let’s talk!

Scaling Mobile at XING: Platform, Framework and Domain Teams This article describes learning from XING on how to scale mobile development such that as many teams as necessary can contribute to the development of mobile apps (on both iOS and Android platforms) and at the same time keep the apps consistent, stable and shiny. It summarizes the key decisions and structural changes they made in order to enable scaling mobile from 2 to 10 teams.
