    Agile 2013: a story about Agilistas, GIT and a panda

    Last week TeamPulse sponsored and attended the leading conference for agile software development - Agile 2013 in Nashville.

    Why You Should Care About Distributed Load Testing

    Load testing used to be the practice of large testing organizations with dedicated performance engineers, for mission-essential applications expecting thousands or even hundreds of thousands of users.  But as web applications become more ubiquitous and more important to the organization’s business, more and more testing teams are finding value in understanding the characteristics of their application under load.

    Why Exploratory Testing Should Be Part of Your Process

    Exploratory testing is a structured process of investigating an application by learning and understanding its use, features, and operation in a series of logically constructed but ad hoc tests.  By itself, exploratory testing can be useful, but when combined with other testing practices, it can be a powerful way to better understand the application, build more and better functional tests, and ultimately increase product quality. Exploratory testing can take many forms.  A tester might methodically execute a series of transactions as a user might do, recording the results and looking for discrepancies or inconsistencies.  Or the tester might perform a ...
