Android Tool for Mac - Adventures in QA

Android Tool for Mac

If you are a mobile tester or a mobile developer you may not have the problem to create screenshots or videos from the current develop state of your app. You will probably use tools like adb for Android or QuickTime for iOS in order to capture a video. However, this is not the case for prodct owners, scrum master, mobile designer or any other non-technical colleague on the project. They may have not installed the mobile development tools like Android Studio or Xcode.

Reading Recommendations # 31

The 31st issue of the reading recommendation contains again 7 posts. This time I collected different kind of topics for you. There are mobile and wearbale testing topics, hiring, blogging and conference related topics. My favorite this week is the post from Katrina Clokie. Katrina wrote the post “Mobile Testing Pathway” where she collected very useful mobile testing topics. Furthermore, she provided some really nice exercises for people to start with mobile testing.
There is another post with the topic “What is Mobile First?” and a interesting one about “The Apple Watch won’t change Testing”.

Then there is a post about naughty strings and how they can be used during testing. Other posts are dealing with the topics “How to write a great talk proposal for a tech conference”, “9 Habits of Bloggers Who Have Huge Audiences” and “Differences Between Hiring a Contractor or Consultant”.

Rotation Tour in Mobile Testing - Adventures in QA

Rotation Tour in Mobile Testing

When I plan my mobile testing efforts and activities, I always plan to perform some special testing with the help of heuristics/ mnemonics. I use the heuristics to concentrate on a specific part of the app to find different behaviors and bugs. I hope you are all familiar with the touring heuristics within software testing. If not, here is a short overview of very known and popular heuristics/ mnemonics.

There is the touring heuristic FCC CUTS VIDS from Michael D. Kelly. Where FCC CUTS VIDS should remind you of several testing tours you can perform on your software. FCC CUTS VIDS stands for: Read more

Reading Recommendations # 30

Time’s flying, this is already the 30th issue of my software testing reading recommendations. So far I recommended over 150 links to blog posts, podcasts or videos. I got lots of great feedback from my readers about this format on my blog. This issue contains again 7 very interesting posts about different topics. Lisa Crispins describes her learnings from the Agile 2015 conference. Neil Studd is writing about how to motivate testers. Furthermore there are posts about “Where do Testers go with Agile”, “Barcode detection in Play Services”, “Testing early vs. late”, “10 Ways to hire niche employees” and another post about “Automated tests do not improve your testing process”.

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.
