93 Most Popular Software Testing Blogs In 2015

93 Most Popular Software Testing Blogs In 2015 - Adventures in QASince 2014 TestBuffet is creating a list of the most popular software testing blogs from the last year. TestBuffet defines itself like this:

“Our goal is to bring structure in this web of information. We gather software testing related blogs from around the world, assign them a category and rank those blogs by their popularity. This could be a good place for testers to start reading.”

And TestBuffet is a great place to find various software testings from around the world. In order to be considered in the ranking a blog has to meet specific entry criteria. The criteria are:

  • At least three blog posts between 1st of January to the next year January.
  • The blog is offering a feed and can be accessed without any errors.
  • The blog is about software testing.

Last year 114 blogs were ranked to be worth reading and my blog www.adventuresinqa.com was ranked on position 29, which was a huge success for me. For the best blogs in 2015, 353 software testing blogs participated in the ranking, but just 93 passed all the criteria and this list is now available here. Read more

One thing not to forget when you are done testing

The following article “One thing not to forget when you are done testing” is a guest post by Joel Montvelisky, Chief Solution Architect at PractiTest, a test management tool and blog owner of QA Intelligence where he writes about all things related to Testing; the good, the bad and the funny.

OK, so you and your team just completed a full testing project.

You created new tests for it, ran your cycles on multiple devices achieving the coverage you needed for release, you found a bunch of important bugs that were fixed (and some that were set for a later version), and throughout the whole process you provided valuable feedback to the product team on the features that you ended up releasing.

All in all you and your team did a pretty good job – Congratulations!

Now, as it usually happens you are also late to start your next project (or two?!) and you just want to get running with those tests…

But wait!!! Read more

Blog Review 2015

Blog Review 2015 - Adventures in QASince 2011 it’s a tradition for me to post a blog review of my blog to give you as my readers some insights. The year 2015 was again a very exciting year for me and the blog. One thing was my absolute highlight this year. It was the release of my book “Hands-On Mobile App Testing” in the printed edition by Addison-Wesley. When I released the book in 2014 on leanpub, I never expected that a book publishing company will ever print my book and this makes me really proud :). But today is not about my book, it’s about my blog which helped me to shape my knowledge in the software testing industry and which led me to write a book at all.

Before I go into details, I want to say thank you to all of my readers. Thanks for checking my blog from time to time and to read the content that I am producing. The feedback I got in the last year was just great and feels really good. It made me proud to see that the numbers of unique users, page impressions and comments have increased also in 2015.

Blog Review

Today I want to share some numbers and highlights with you. While collecting all the numbers for this post I was kind of surprised by one number which is 104. During the year 2015, I wrote 104 blog posts which is amazing (I would have never guessed this number).
Most of my posts where dealing with mobile testing, people in testing and my reading recommendations. Read more
