Successful software depends as much on scrupulous testing as it does on solid architecture or elegant code. But testing is not a routine process, it's a constant exploration of methods and an evolution of good ideas. Beautiful Testing offers 23 essays from 27 leading testers and developers that illustrate the qualities and techniques that make testing an art. Through personal anecdotes, you'll learn how each of these professionals developed beautiful ways of testing a wide range of products -- valuable knowledge that you can apply to your own projects. Here's a sample of what you'll find inside: Microsoft's Alan Page knows a lot about large-scale test automation, and shares some of his secrets on how to make it beautiful Scott Barber explains why performance testing needs to be a collaborative process, rather than simply an exercise in measuring speed Karen Johnson describes how her professional experience intersected her personal life while testing medical software Rex Black reveals how satisfying stakeholders for 25 years is a beautiful thing Mathematician John D. Cook applies a classic definition of beauty, based on complexity and unity, to testing random number generators All author royalties will be donated to the Nothing But Nets campaign to save lives by preventing malaria, a disease that kills millions of children in Africa each year.

Mobile Applikationen unterliegen strengen Vorgaben an Zuverlässigkeit, Benutzerfreundlichkeit, Sicherheit und Performance. Jedoch verfügen nicht alle App-Entwickler und Softwaretester gleichermaßen über ausreichende Testkenntnisse in diesem neuen Anwendungsbereich mit seinen speziellen Herausforderungen. Dieses Buch bietet einen kompakten Einstieg in das Testen mobiler Anwendungen, insbesondere für die Android- und die iOS-Plattform. Nach einer Einführung in Mobilgeräte und Apps sowie mobile Plattformen geht der Autor vertieft auf Betriebssystem-Apps, Sensoren und Schnittstellen ein. In jedem Kapitel findet der Leser praktische Anleitungen für App-spezifische Funktionalitätstests, Benutzbarkeitstests, Stress- und Robustheitstests, Performanztests und Sicherheitstests. Des Weiteren wird beschrieben, wie Fehler innerhalb einer App erfasst werden können. Ein zentraler Bestandteil des Buches ist die Testautomatisierung von mobilen Anwendungen mit den dafür benötigten Werkzeugen. Es werden unterschiedliche Werkzeuge beschrieben und ein Kriterienkatalog zur Auswahl geeigneter Werkzeuge zur Verfügung gestellt. Auch spezifische Testmethoden wie Crowd- oder Cloud-Testen speziell für mobile Applikationen werden behandelt sowie unterschiedliche Teststrategien und Veröffentlichungsstrategien erörtert, um mobile Anwendungen erfolgreich zu vermarkten. Zum Abschluss geht der Autor auf neue Technologietrends wie IoT sowie Businessmodelle für Apps ein.

Plenty of software testing books tell you how to test well; this one tells you how to do it while decreasing your testing budget. A series of essays written by some of the leading minds in software testing, How to Reduce the Cost of Software Testing provides tips, tactics, and techniques to help readers accelerate the testing process, improve the performance of the test teams, and lower costs. The distinguished team of contributors—that includes corporate test leaders, best paper authors, and keynote speakers from leading software testing conferences—supply concrete suggestions on how to find cost savings without sacrificing outcome. Detailing strategies that testers can immediately put to use to reduce costs, the book explains how to make testing nimble, how to remove bottlenecks in the testing process, and how to locate and track defects efficiently and effectively. Written in language accessible to non-technical executives, as well as those doing the testing, the book considers the latest advances in test automation, ideology, and technology. Rather than present the perspective of one or two experts in software testing, it supplies the wide-ranging perspectives of a team of experts to help ensure your team can deliver a completed test cycle in less time, with more confidence, and reduced costs.

Mit viel Humor, provokanten Denkanstößen und erprobten Tipps erklärt Ferriss, wie sich die 4-Stunden-Woche bei vollem Lohnausgleich verwirklichen lässt. Der Wegweiser für eine Flucht aus dem Hamsterrad und ein Manifest für eine neue Gewichtung zwischen Leben und Arbeiten.

Interweaving biblical insights and personal narratives, this eloquently written book shows how God often uses suffering and desert experiences to form us into Christ's image. Marlena Graves shares her experiences of growing up poor in a house plagued by mental illness as a means to explore the forces God uses to shape us into beautiful people in the midst of brokenness. This book offers a window into suffering through the motif of desert spirituality, revealing how God can use our painful experiences to show himself faithful. While no one welcomes suffering, God often uses desert experiences--those we initially despise and wouldn't wish on anyone--to transform us into beautiful souls who better resemble Jesus. Graves shows how God can bring life out of circumstances reeking of death and destruction, whether those circumstances are crises or daily doses of quiet desperation. Readers who have experienced suffering and question God's purpose for it will benefit from this book, as will counselors, pastors, professors, and mentors. It includes a foreword by John Ortberg and Laura Ortberg Turner.
