From a swarm of devices to a cloud: a hands-on experience with automated testing in a Visual Studio App Center

The modern day smartphone is allegedly more powerful than the Apollo guidance computer that landed a man on the moon, and we have all that processing power in our pockets. News, weather, online shopping, social media, cat videos — thousands of apps let us enjoy these conveniences of today. But if our favorite app starts glitching or slowing down, it quickly loses its crown.

Text mining 101: what it is and how it works for business

The modern world generates enormous amounts of data, and it is growing year by year. Data has become the most valuable managerial resource to provide a competitive edge and originate knowledge management initiatives. Now manual data processing and classification has become costly and ineffective — and it has to be either automated entirely or used only when the important data is already selected automatically from the total quantity.

Text mining is essentially the automated process of deriving high-quality information from text. Its main difference from other types of data analysis is that the input data is not formalized in any way, which means it cannot be described with a simple mathematical function.

No more queues with ‘tap&go’ by WaveAccess – makes UK shopping easier and faster

WaveAccess has developed a new retail function for jisp called ‘tap&go’ – a combined B2B and B2C shopping solution. The service lets users make purchases simply by tapping their mobile against a NFC special sticker. With the free app downloaded users bring the smartphone to the sticker on the shelf and can make payment in exactly the same way or by selecting the in-app option. tap&go is three times faster than scanning and is able to significantly reduce checkout lines which will be an added incentive for shoppers to shop where convenience is paramount. And it’s proven to reduce costs through the elimination of equipment including conventional checkouts, pay desks, in addition to reducing the need for expensive POS materials. jisp tap&go is being implemented in supermarkets and retail stores all over the UK.

Test Automation Tools for Desktop Applications. Pt.2: Open Source tools

Automated testing is widely used for web and mobile apps, which are the majority of applications developed today. Desktop apps are not so popular nowadays, but are still common for financial companies, manufacturing, and HoReCa. We had an opportunity to perform testing for our client’s project, which was tens of thousands of LOCs. In this case, manual testing of just one new function would require 6 weeks from development to release.

To speed up the process, we have selected the optimal automated test framework: leaving packaged solutions behind because of their price and non-transparency, we have found an open-source solution that fit our needs perfectly.

Test Automation Tools for Desktop Applications. Pt.1: Boxed solutions

Software development practices change over time, and so does the test automation landscape. Today most applications are either web- or mobile-based. The test automation of such systems is well described. There are some best practices, information-loaded conferences, good tools, and so on. However, we faced a lack of information regarding desktop testing automation, in particular, for Windows 7+ apps.

Our task was to test such an application, given that manual QA-process would take more than a month. Here we share the pros and cons of discovered solutions, along with our experience and some best practices of the test automation process.
