Four Picks #4

After a long pause I am restarting the “Four Picks” series back again and hope you find it useful. Here is 4th edition of “Four Picks”

  1. Josh Glade has written an excellent article Five Sins of Mobile Testing on Stickyminds. Josh has given some very important tips for building an effective mobile testing strategy and avoid some common mistakes. His point on testing mobile apps on Emulator Software is valid, however emulators also provide first line of defence before apps are tesed on real devices. If you’re interested in learning more about mobile testing, I also recommend reading Jonathan Kohl’s book Tap into Mobile Application Testing I’m currently reading this book. It is packed with some real practical advice on testing mobile apps, I’ll post a review soon.
  2. Testability and Cost of Change I found this post while watching a video lesson. A well researched post with examples from Google. It provides very useful tips on testability and associated costs. There is an interesting example on cost savings with a bug found during TDD (again a solid reason to adopt TDD)
  3. From One Expert to Another: Dale Emery  Dale Emery talks about his recent talk on Test Automation Zombie Apocalypse I loved this presentation, though I do not agree to all points. This provides great stuff to reflect on your test automation efforts and assess the good and bad things. I also recommend reading Tales of Test Automation Gone Wrong by Elisabeth Hendrickson, in fact we built a assessment out of this presentation to check health of our test automation projects.
  4. Mindmaps! Here is a beautiful mind map on testing tools I found on Twitter
