    Avoid Extra Grey Hair! Use Careful Test Design

    August 02, 2013 Share
    I often joke that one half of the grey in my beard is from being the at-home-parent for our two children from birth through my oldest’s teen years, one half is from my age, and one half is from all the hard lessons I’ve learned over a few decades worth of being in the software industry. Yes, that adds up to three halves. Its supposed to. I’m a tester so errors in math are an ironic juxtaposition of… Oh, nevermind. It’s taken me a long time, but I finally learned to be very careful about how I design my automated ...

    Test Studio’s New Remote Execution Engine

    July 31, 2013 Share
    The upcoming 2013 R1 release of Test Studio comes with an entirely reworked remote execution and scheduling engine. The need for this change came from a desire to allow parallelization of test runs and to bring different test types into parity. When enterprises have many test machines, they often want to be able to run tests from a test list across these machines, rather than running them in series. We also wanted to bring load tests into parity with web tests, allowing them to be scheduled, as well as making them easier to set up.
