Reading Recommendations - Adventures in QA

Reading Recommendations # 26

The 26th issue of my software testing reading recommendations contains only 6 blog posts. The first one is more an announcement for the CAST2015 live stream which will happen in August and which will be a very interesting testing conference. Then there are posts dealing with the topics of mobile testing and how to create a mobile workshop. Katrina wrote a nice post about this. There is another very important post with the topic “How can open source projects deliver high quality software without dedicated testers”. Another post is dealing with “Sick and tired of losing time with Agile estimation”, the room 101 and about the reality of small scale testing.

Enjoy reading the posts.

How XING choose mobile test devices

In my last company blog post I dealed with the topic: “How to choose the right mobile test devices”.

In addition to all our mobile test automation, we also do a lot of manual and exploratory testing within our mobile team. We test devices with different hard- and software, with different browser versions, and on different carrier networks to be sure that our apps work in the way our customers will use it.

Due to the fact that the mobile market is growing, the key question for a mobile Quality Assurance person is: Which devices are right for testing? It’s simply not possible to do testing on every device!
