Hands-On Mobile App Testing 2nd Edition

Hands-On Mobile App Testing 2nd Edition is Available

Today, I want to inform you that the 2nd edition of my book Hands-On Mobile App Testing is available for purchase on leanpub.com 🎉. I am pretty happy with the 2nd edition, since it’s so much better than the first edition. I completely revised every chapter. I removed outdated content and added many new sections to the chapters. While working through the first edition, I noticed that many link resources are not working anymore or are outdated. Many of the tools, I mentioned in 2014 are not available anymore. I was thinking about a solution to prevent the book resources becoming outdated too fast.

More Mobile Testing Content

For this reason, I created a proxy page here on my blog for the 2nd edition. All resources from the book, link to my proxy page. With that logic in place, all links inside the book will remain valid and working. I am making sure, that all links on the proxy book page are up to date and available for you when you need them 😀. I hope you like this idea!

Next to the links, I was reworking all the images inside the book, mainly the graphics I was creating myself back in 2014. They look much fresher and nicer now. At the same time I added some more images to the chapters.

Here is a quick summary of what I have changed in the 2nd edition:

  • All chapters got updated
  • New way of link resource handling.
  • Chapter 4 and 5 got updated with the latest tooling and techniques in mobile testing.
  • Chapter 7 got new sections for beta testing, staged rollout and mobile release train.
  • Chapter 9 added with a new technology trends.
  • Every image in the book got a make over.

I am looking forward to your feedback about the book. If you have any feedback get in contact with me via twitter or send me a message at daniel [at] adventuresinqa [dot][com].

I would be more than happy if you would spread the news with your testing network.

As a next step, I am also looking into print on demand solutions for the book. By now you can get the digital version at leanpub.com in pdf, mobi or epub format.

Hands-On Mobile App Testing 2nd Edition

Hands-On Mobile App Testing – 2nd Edition is Coming

In this post I want to inform you, that I am currently working on the 2nd edition of my book Hands-On Mobile App Testing. The mobile testing book will be available in some weeks on leanpub.com and maybe on other platforms. The book is on the market since 2014 and in some parts outdated. Especially the link sources are outdated or not available anymore. Also outdated is the test automation chapter, especially the testing tool section.

My plan is to revise the whole book from the first to the last page. Once revised, it will be a state of the art mobile testing book. That will help you to tackle all mobile testing challenges. If you would like to stay up to date with the book and to get informed when the book will be available, make sure to sign on the landing page here.

The content of the first edition can be checked here.

If you have a topic that should be covered in the 2nd edition let me know either on twitter @dnlkntt or via mail daniel [at] adventuresinqa [DOT] com.

Starting Your Software Testing Career - Book Review Adventures in QA

Starting Your Software Testing Career – Book Review

Right at the beginning of 2022, I had the pleasure to interview Nicola Lindgren on my YouTube channel about her new book. The book is called Starting Your Software Testing Career. And finally, more than 4 months later I managed to read the book 🙈 🎉. I wanted to write this post much earlier, but life added some other tasks onto my shoulders 😃. But let’s get right into the book review.

Nicola wrote a wonderful book about software testing and what is important to know when you want to start a career as software tester. The book has 185 pages and is divided in 15 chapters. You can read the book in 2 ways. The first way is, from the first to the last page, which I recommend because Nicola added so many valuable insights about software testing, that even I found some new inspirations for my job in the testing industry. And the second way is to jump right into the chapter that is most interesting to you right now. I highly recommend to add some posts next to you, while you are reading to mark important points also for a later point in time.

Every chapter is well structured and is guiding you through the topic. Nicola is setting the stage for each topic and is providing very useful gems of information. Nicola is writing about the basics of software testing. How to gain skills and what is important to know to get the first job as software tester. She is also writing about the hiring process and what to expect.

I really enjoyed reading the chapters about mentoring and the things I wish I knew in my first year of testing. I found myself so many times in that chapter 😀. In later chapters of the book, Nicola is sharing knowledge about bug reports, test cases vs. exploratory testing and implicit requirements. She is also writing about test automation why is it important and when you should use it.

I don’t want to spoil too many things here in the post. No matter for how long you are working in the testing industry, I highly recommend you to read the book. If you have junior colleagues in your department, tell them to read the book. You will not regret it.

If you want to read the book, you can get it at leanpub. Some more information about Nicola, can be found on her blog: https://nicolalindgren.com/

And last but not least, if you want to hear from Nicola about her book, take a look at the interview below ⬇️
