Вітаєм Вас на сайті quality-and-life.com.

Головна мета цього сайту - компактно зібрати все те, що цікавить мене в галузі якості програмного забезпечення, тобто все те, чим я цікавлюся професійно. Хотілося б об'єднати тут технічну сторону якості та soft-skills (спілкування, лідерство, мотивація і т.д.), так як практика показує, що не тільки технічні знання є головною складовою якості.

Manual Testing in an Agile environment

Quite recently I have change my company and ended up in the agile stile team as manual tester.

I KEEP six honest serving-men
(They taught me all I knew);
Their names are What and Why and When
And How and Where and Who.

emulators vs real devices : reality of testing mobile applications

Very interesting paper about this topic you can find here http://www.softwaretestpro.com/Form/37/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=emai...

Very interesting statistics:
"Best practices indicate that you will probably need to test on up to 30-40 devices in your market and replace around 30% of those each quarter to stay up to date". How many companies can effort this?

It depends

Very often we use terms "quality", "good", " excellence", etc. Do we really understand the meanings of those words? Do they mean only that something should work without a glitch?

Let's look at the definitions of those words by merrian-webster dictionary.

"Quality" - superiority of kind; degree or grade of excellence;

"Good" - adequate, satisfactory;

"Excellence" - the quality of being excellent; an excellent or valuable quality.
