Due to the current situation with Coronavirus the TASSQ Board has decided to continue with monthly free online events until further notice, in support of the QA community!
Machines pushing virtual buttons at inhuman rates appears impressive. Someone who doesn’t look too closely, or doesn’t understand what testers do, could see the flashing, flickering screen and believe “Lo, there be testing!”
Automated output checking at the GUI level can be tricky. Products and services intended for human users are sometimes not so friendly to machines. It can take a lot of time to write code that successfully works around the unfriendliness—for a while. To show some kind of progress, testers sometimes install a simple check that examines one or two simple factors in the output on a screen. When the check returns a happy result, everyone breathes a sigh of relief, then moves on to the next screen. Yet this might not be the greatest idea, because the time and effort required to program automated GUI checks may displace the search for problems that matter more to people than to machines—and those problems are where the business risk lives.
Why not use the power of tools to investigate the product? How about combining the power of the machine with the human capacity for recognizing new problems?
How can we use tools effectively to lower cost, increase test coverage, and find problems that matter? What help might we need toRead More

Global conditions have impacted how software is being built with accelerated digital transformation, increased cybersecurity and higher adoption of modern iterative practices. The work-from-home trend has impacted the relative importance of software testing practices like application performance testing, scalability, security, and software resilience. Additionally there is a trend toward treating nonfunctional requirements with the same importance as functional so they will not create ongoing issues in your organization in safety, security, reliability, or quality.
Test automation is key to keeping pace in this environment, product better software at the pace of your competitors. Testing tools are necessary to take your strategy forward and achieve testing maturity, but making sure that they work effectively in your CI/CD environment is crucial to success.

Manual testing has long been the cornerstone of software quality, relying on the expertise of software testers to ensure an excellent user experience. However, high-velocity teams often struggle to keep up with frequent releases, demanding a hybrid or even fully automated approach. To manage, quality teams are turning to low-code test automation solutions. But, the line between what to automate and what to test manually is blurred. Understanding the role of each - and their impact on UX - is critical to building an effective quality strategy. In this session, Damon will explore ways to combine manual and automated functional testing to create a high-impact quality engineering strategy. Attendees will hear about how to:

Teams are embracing Shift-Left practices and doing Continuous Testing to get early feedback of the quality of the product. Tools are evolving to assist in this transformation as well by making it easy to implement new tests, execute them faster and on-demand for each new build via Continuous Integration. That said, there is still a gap in the ecosystem - as the User Experience validation needs to be done manually. This manual validation is slow, tedious, error-prone and simply cannot scale for all the supported browsers, viewports and devices.
Attend this session to see how Applitools, the inventor of Visual AI, provides a solution to this problem for Web, Mobile-Web, Native Apps and PDF documents, and in the process, also makes your functional testing easier, faster, more reliable, and scalable.

Many people ask why they would bother looking at a model for testing. Why add the expense and effort to implement a model when the current process works and all the testing is proceeding well (save for those few nasty bugs that made it out to production and cost us several customers and a lot of good will).
Join TASSQ for a brief overview of the TMMi model; three reasons why you might want to consider a model with associated ROI; and a way of implementingRead More

With 2020 seeing an unprecedented rise in online shopping, the number of ecommerce apps in the app store has increased by 40% year over year. We’ve been paying special attention to ecommerce apps and have taken the past year to develop a clear testing methodology for launch and maintenance.
In this talk, we’ll share best practices for testing an ecommerce app both before release and once it’s live in the app store, covering at least six different types and methods of testing, including manual, regression, load, and accessibility testing.
We’ll also be holding a live user acceptance testing session based on a mature ecommerce app we launched last year, and then we’ll be thRead More
