Best Practices in Mobile CI [WEBINAR]

April 22nd, 2015 by Bill McGee

Modern organizations today feel immense pressure to deliver better software faster, and this is no different in the mobile space. The best practice of Continuous Integration for web dev has been embraced for years as it is a proven mechanism that accelerates production cycles. However,mobile developers have been slow to adopt CI, despite needing a quick go-to-market plan.

In large part, this is because mobile brings with it a set of unique challenges that make implementation tough. Nevertheless, tools have evolved and mobile development teams now have many options to choose from to implement a solid mobile CI system.

In our next webinar, Kevin Rohling (Emberlight, Ship.io) and Kristian Meier (Sauce Labs) will cover best practices in implementing a mobile CI system and demonstrate how you can easily build, test, and deploy mobile apps.

Decreasing False Positives in Automated Testing [WEBINAR]

March 17th, 2015 by Bill McGee

False positives: automated testing’s arch nemesis.

When automated tests are written well, they are part of a healthy CI/CD process that can save developer time and company money. But when a team gets false positives from unreliable tests, the entire build can get derailed. What’s worse, too many false positives can erode an organization’s belief in the value of using a test automation framework at all.

In this webinar, Anand Ramakrishnan of QASource will walk you through what false positives are and provide key strategies to reduce or eliminate them.

Anand will cover:

• What false positives are and why they occur

• Common causes and the challenges they create

• How to implement key strategies to reduce them

• Why implementing these strategies is essential for increasing productivity and reducing cost, as well as time to market

• Case studies, real world examples, a live demo and Q&A

Join us for this presentation on Tuesday, March 24th at 11am PDT/2pm EDT. There will be a Q&A following the end of the presentation.

Continuous Testing in Practice [WEBINAR]

February 18th, 2015 by Bill McGee

As web and mobile application software increases in complexity, the number and frequency of tests grows exponentially. But managing your tests with sub-optimal continuous integration (CI) workflows can lead to bottlenecks, delays, and lost developer productivity.

In our next webinar, Continuous Testing in Practice, Ophir Prusak from BlazeMeter and Abhijit Pendyal from Sauce Labs will show you how to integrate automated testing into your CI process so that you can test early and often to speed up deployment.

Ophir and Abhijit will cover:

  • Why Continuous Testing is so important today
  • How to ensure testing keeps pace with agile development cycles
  • The end-to-end flow of a continuous testing process
  • How to implement continuous automated functional & performance testing
  • How to integrate continuous testing with your existing tools

Join us for this presentation on Tuesday, February 24th at 10am PST/1pm EST. There will be a Q&A with both Ophir and Abhijit following the end of the presentation.

Automated Visual Testing In The Cloud: Enhance Your Cross-browser Coverage [WEBINAR]

February 10th, 2015 by Bill McGee

Manually testing your app for UI bugs across multiple browsers and devices is a tedious process, but you can accelerate it with automated visual testing that goes beyond pixel-by-pixel screenshot comparison.

In this webinar, you’ll see how you can easily avoid front-end bugs and visual regressions, as well as substantially increase coverage, by adding scalable automated visual testing to your existing Selenium and Appium tests running on the Sauce Labs cloud.

In this webinar we’ll:

  • Reveal expert tips on how to successfully perform large-scale automated visual testing
  • Show how to leverage visual testing to increase coverage, while reducing maintenance efforts
  • Run a live cross-browser visual test with Sauce Labs and Applitools
