Hans Buwalda looks at where the future of software testing is going. https://well.tc/woym

The Internet of Things (IoT) has made it on many of the trends lists for the year. Given that security issues can make or break market acceptance for #IoT solutions, security testing as a quality attribute is expected to gain a lot of prominence in app development again this year.https://well.tc/worw #securitytesting

The Values Essential to a Scrum Software Development Practice https://well.tc/3zju
The Scrum Guide was updated recently to make values an explicit part of the framework: commitment, courage, focus, openness, and respect. When these values are embodied and lived by the team, the Scrum pillars of transparency, inspection, and adaptation come to life and build trust for everyone. Is your team practicing them?

At this point, it’s not “if” you have Netflix that’s the question. It’s more “Is having Netflix available on thirteen devices maybe a tab bit excessive?” Netflix has taken over the movie and television streaming space with a quickness, becoming the standard that other major companies are almost forced to follow. But what’s it like actually working at such a major streaming service? We established previously that Netflix doesn’t specifically adhere to agile, even with a great need to stay lean and iterative due to the scale of users and data at play. https://well.tc/3vu2

Most #machinelearning systems are based on neural networks, or sets of layered algorithms whose variables can be adjusted via a learning process. These types of systems don’t produce an exact result; in fact, sometimes they can produce an obviously incorrect result. So, how do you test them? Peter Varhol tells you what you should consider when evaluating machine learning systems.https://well.tc/woec

Testing is a field that invites people from diverse backgrounds, so there's no one path to get into the role. But with the catch-22 of needing a job to get experience but needing experience to get a job, how do you break into software testing? Justin Rohrman has advice for anyone wanting some test experience. https://well.tc/wojo #softwaretesting #career

Certain patterns of behavior define a toxic culture, including an us-versus-them mentality, the pervasiveness of rumors and gossip, and an emphasis on making your numbers no matter what it takes. A pattern of several of these indicators suggests toxicity. Read on for more indicators to look out for. https://well.tc/wob5

There are endless reasons why your test team might need to make use of automation. However, even if we’re at a point where most people agree you need some sort of test automation to compete in today’s agile landscape, using automation indiscriminately leads to more headaches than benefits. https://well.tc/3y2w #testautomation

Sometimes odd things happen in an industry that wants to move forward. In our industry, this change is putting particular pressure on the testing profession. With the increasing technical complexity of systems and the challenges of fitting testing into processes like DevOps, some companies have decided to fire their testers and replace them with developers. The idea is that developers are better able to cope with automation and will have more insight into what to test and the architecture of the systems than testers. https://well.tc/wo5c #softwaretesting #career
Testers have an important responsibility to protect and further their craft. Many people who want to be considered testers should engage in career development more than they might have in the past. Hans Buwalda highlights four areas that testers need to understand to stay relevant.
