    The Importance of Measuring Iteration Velocity and Capacity for Agile Planning

    September 25, 2013 Share
    When iteratively planning an Agile project where the team partitions work into timeboxed iterations, understanding capacity is very important. Planning an iteration is very much like using a bucket to scoop water out of a pool, where the pool represents the complete set of backlog items on your project and the bucket represents the amount of work that can be accomplished in a single iteration. Understanding how much water a bucket holds will give you an idea of how many buckets are required to empty the pool. Similarly, understanding how much work your team can deliver in an iteration will ...

    New Load and Scheduling Articles for Test Studio

    September 24, 2013 Share
    Now that Test Studio has a new scheduling and load testing architecture, our documentation updates can help you get the most out of our new and old scheduling and load testing features.  First, we have a new guide for an existing feature: our new Export Load Results walkthrough shows how to convert your Test Studio Load Test results to HTML or Excel spreadsheet format. Next, we have some help for responding to some load testing problems that may have popped up for a while: the No Results Data article explains what to do when you aren't getting results back ...

    More Data and Better Analytics Lead to Better Quality Decisions

    September 24, 2013 Share
    Software development and testing processes have the potential to create a lot of useful data. With fast computers and new software tools, we can use that data in innovative ways to dramatically improve how we look at problems and make decisions. Gartner has named data and analytics as a disruptive force in the testing industry in its latest automated testing Magic Quadrant. Today, for our decisions regarding characteristics like quality, “doneness”, impact of defects, and test coverage, we all too often rely on our experience, instincts, and “gut feel”. While those decisions are sometimes correct, much of the time ...

    Power of Dynamic Test Lists

    September 23, 2013 Share
    Test Lists are a great way to organize tests and get execution results summarized. Telerik Test Studio includes the standard “Static” Test List that allows you to add existing tests from your project, but there is a small maintenance penalty for using the static list because each time you add a new test to your project it must be added to one of the existing test lists. One of the underlying principals of Test Studio is to decrease the overall maintenance cost traditionally associated with automated testing. Within the world of test lists we have done this by creating the ...

    30 Days of TDD: Day Seven – Software Factories and DI Frameworks

    September 23, 2013 Share
    In the previous post I showed you how by starting to leverage the SOLID principles you can unlock the practice of Dependency Injection (DI). I also demonstrated how DI can help you write code that is free of static bindings, which makes your code flexible, open to change and testable. In this post I’ll demonstrate some practical techniques to manage the dependencies in your application by using software factories and DI frameworks.
