A testers brain requires a lot of creativity and the no of scenarios that we test on a day to day basis are innumerable. Expecting the brain to remember all the ways of testing an application whether it be from a mobile, a web or an API interface is tough and an overhead. This mobile testing checklist is a brain dump of the different ways that I approach and think about testing apps in different conditions and hopefully reduces the cognitive load to remember these.
Report portal is one of the new reporting solutions available. It supports multiple different test frameworks like TestNG, Cucumber, Pytest and many more. This post is the first in a series of posts on how to set up report portal effectively and leverage the best use out of it.
An opinionated post on Why focussing on titles is an anti-pattern that should stop in the Testing world and how much better the industry if we all focussed a bit more on learning the activities/practices and what are some of these activities that a tester does.
Sometime back, I tried to update my Kotlin test code using TestNG to use data providers and Before/After annotations and it did not work immediately. After some research I found the solution. Here is a post, explaining how to use these constructs well with an example.
Give your development experience superpowers!I do the bulk of my test automation development in Kotlin/Java or Python languages. After the programming language, a very important component for the dev workflow is a good IDE.While the purists generally rave about the use of Editors like Sublime, VSCode or even use of Vim/Emacs over full-fledged IDE's like...

TestNG is a popular test framework that needs no introduction in the JVM (Java virtual machine) ecosystem and can be used for automating your tests regardless of their size. For example: Large (functional) or medium/small level tests (Integration/Unit). It is a highly customizable framework and provides great flexibility around how you want to structure your...

This is a neat trick I discovered recently enums are a very useful concept in programming and allow us to define constant values which can easily hold grouped data and even declare members I use them heavily in my automation code to define constant values and they work very well when we have...

Hello there, Software testing and automation is a craft in itself and is intricately as complicated as the varying technologies that it aims to verify. Whether it be a web app, a mobile app, or a complex mesh of distributed microservices, IoT apps, and whatnot. Unlike other disciplines, People who work in Software Testing come... Continue Reading →
Hello there, As an engineer working in tech, one of the most important habits to develop over time is your knowledge base. With each passing month, your skills would improve and you would constantly learn new technologies or frameworks. It's important to commit the important ones to some permanent store which is easily searchable, and... Continue Reading →
