Quality assurance (QA) is a way of preventing mistakes or defects in products and systems, and avoiding problems when delivering solutions or services to customers. QA is applied to software to verify that features and functionality meet business objectives, and that code is relatively bug free prior to shipping or releasing new software products and versions. Quality assurance comprises administrative and procedural activities implemented in a quality system so that requirements and goals for a product, service or activity will be fulfilled. Two principles included in quality assurance are: "Fit for purpose" (the product should be suitable for the intended purpose); and "right first time" (mistakes should be eliminated).

I would like a crash course in Selenium as a C# developer and prefer to reach versus watching video.

Any good visual tutorials I can read?

It'd be great if there were C# programming exercises as well.

Thanks

I am new to using Selenium for web UI testing, but see it as a great tool for that. Can it also be used for load testing?

If so, how does that work? How do you handle concurrency?

Thanks.

Wanted to know how to setup pass-through authentication for our internal use websites and applications.

Examples: Microsoft Teams / Jira / Confluence / Outlook (Office365)

For internal application websites, is it as easy as setting up a GPO?

What kinds of things do I need to know in order to get started with automated tests with Selenium? I have experience with unit testing, but no front-end testing yet.

I am interested in smoke testing, best practices, what kinds of guidelines to use when making a test plan with Selenium.

I am interested in hearing how other people use it...

Thanks.

Our IT people have to travel to developing countries and still participate in conference calls with U.S. institutions while traveling abroad while setting up our offices. This would be before our dedicated internet and private lines are installed. The U.S. customers on the conference calls are not accustomed to such poor quality connections from land lines and cellular services: They can sound extremely muffled, distorted, can be unhearable or can't hear themselves for 30 seconds, etc. And we are not interested in making excuses to the American clients by pointing out on a big conference call that we are traveling to India and the Philippines because doing so then highlights our "abroad-ness" that we don't want to emphasize. Even high quality hotels have poor internet connections and fixed telephone in these countries. If they had good internet, I would just recommend they bring along a VoIP box and land line telephone. So here is the question:

What can the IT folks to do sound good on telephone calls when they are traveling to this undeveloped regions? Satellite phone? Take a VoIP box to a dedicated internet location that they can pay to use, but where?

There is a bug I want to capture, but a screenshot is nearly impossible to do because the bug I see happens so fast and goes away.  How can I capture this?

Prefer to use Chrome extension if this exists.
I use featherlight for screenshots.

I'm starting a clean re-write of a python app that wasn't OO.  It worked but was pretty clumbsy and poorly documented.

The overall project is for a critical system which will require clearly documented design, verifiication, and validation testing.  

As far as the design goes, I'd like to clearly document the parts of the app like modules, classes, methods, properties, expected results etc.

I suppose I could make an exhaustive text document but I'm hoping there is some best practice tool that pros use for documenting this kind of project.

If it makes a difference I'm using PyCharm Pro 2016.1 but I'm open to using other 3rd party tools


Any ideas?

We have a Salesforce instance (cloud) and a JIRA (inhouse) server. I want to push data from Salesforce to JIRA using REST. The problem is our firewall. We want to leverage an existing URL that we already use to PUSH Salesforce data to an inhouse app using SOAP. Let's pretend this url is https://salesforcein.myco.com.  The standard REST url for JIRA is jira.myco.net/rest/api

How can I hit https://salesforcein.myco.com from outside and somehow bridge it over to jira.myco.net/rest/api  ? I'm not a network guy but I plan on forwarding the solution to our network guys.

Thanks
Mike

From IT major incidents to manufacturing line slowdowns, every business process generates insights that need to reach the people required to take action. You need a platform that integrates with your business tools to create fully enabled DevOps toolchains.

You need xMatters.

I am new to Selenium and see there is the free version and a paid version.

What does it cost?

I will use it .NET and ASP.NET websites.

What are the big reasons for buying a license?

Thanks.

I am newly on a project to support a host of .NET Framework website, some ancient. And we need to start doing automated UI testing.

What suggestions can you make?

I want something that we will not outgrow, but that is not too difficult to get up and running.

Thanks.

I have a large control system (I/O toggling valves, reading instruments, executing control logic, etc.) with a proposed verification approach of:

1. "Black box" testing, meaning looking at the system from a high level, without getting into the details of what's happening at each step

and

2. Code verification, where code (ladder logic) will be reviewed against a specification.

Could this approach be sufficient to adequately test the system?

I know this question lacks detail, just looking for general thoughts.

Thank you!

I have a manual task, where I copy and paste information from a weekly report that I receive in an Excel file.

This information needs to placed in a master file that is continuously updated each week and another file that needs to be repopulated on a biweekly basis.

How can I go about automating this task?

Thanks!

We have an IIS 7.0 HTTPS site which I'm trying to setup for this purpose

receive file upload requirements:

1. Client will upload XML files over HTTPS via script on their end using a provided user id/password (no web GUI interface)
2. Our system needs to detect that a file is being uploaded, read the XML data file to find a return HTTPS address within that file and then send an http 200 (ok) response code to that return address to indicate a successful receipt of that file.

Hi,

I need to do data quality checks soon writing sql. I have the understanding of doing the following test types

1)validity -if the field is populated or not, if it has valid values or not

2)completeness-null or blank occurrences

First steps I am thinking of is doing data profiling on specific fields that I will be performing data quality test that I know if it allows null values or not..Any specific questions I should ask the team that is been doing testing(They haven't given me walkthrough and they wont too but I just want to ask intelligent questions regarding data quality testing)

Anything else that I should do to make sure the data quality test  is done properly.

Thanks in advance.

Heyas,

Been reading up on Desktop automation tools for an upcoming project. Found 3 so far that look quite promising.

Other than these are there others that I should take a look at?

The application is a .NET application that was developed in Windows 7.

Thank you.

We have a number of different mobile applications within our organisation; some developed in house others are purchased by vendors.

All these applications need to be tested for defects. At the moment, we have a fairly laborious process of holding test items in a spreadsheet and having someone manually go through them. As you can imagine, it's very time consuming.

We'd like to look into automated software testing. I've heard of a couple; SeeTest being one of them: https://experitest.com/

My question is this:

For tools like these, do they need custom code embedded into the software or can they be used out of the box? For our custom developed solutions embedding code can be quite straightforward, but for vendor apps not sure how we can do this?

Does anyone have any experience with automated testing for 3rd party solutions?

I know how to get the API link manually from browser plugins such as developer tools or firebug. I have a requirement to get all the APIs for testing. I have to write a script in any language(python, java, perl...) to test all the API links rather than hitting from website UI, but before that I should get all the API links to proceed further.

Does anyone know or have a script to get all the API links of a website?

I am in need of guidance for creating for my group a Test Plan for a vb.net application.

I have be given this task to be completed by weeks end.

I require a sample of a small Test Plan for a vb.net application in a QA environment.

My Development Group consist of 4 people: myself, I  am a level one programmer,
                                                                               Team Lead is level three programmer,
                                                                                a level two programmer and
                                                                                a level two Supervisor.

Only I know about the HP ALM Quality Center(QC) and it's full function of creating Test Cases and it's defect tracking.
I have been told the QC is too difficult for the other team members to learn given the short deliver date.  

We are using the Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 for application lifecycle, and Visual Studio 2010 for
version control.

There is an urgency for my request.  My last performance evaluation, I was rated "not meeting expectations" due to
my missing a due date on one of my assignments.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi Experts, I need somebody with experience implementing this architecture (picture attached).
Desired architectureI'm currently developing using docker with no problems (linking apache, redis, mysql and node). I'm trying to take a step up, implementing QA and CI. I've recently installed bitnami jenkins over virtualbox, the php-template, and downloaded all recomended plugins. I've also installed docker on that virtualbox machine (ubuntu 14.04).
Now, i must figure out the best approach
1- Jenkins running docker exec with -c "phing / ant....composer " "gulp/grunt bower" inside containers to run test on node (for angular) and apache (for php)
2- Jenkins talking with dockerized jenkins (slave)
3- Another recomended way?

I'm interesed on hearing some experienced developer who can point me on the right direction to gain QA on my projectss.

Please excuse my english.

Regards.
