Using AI/ML and Production Data to Improve Software Testing
Posted by Greg Sypolt in AISoftware Development & Testing

You may not think that artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning (ML) have much to do with software testing. So far, software tests have not been a major part of the AI and ML conversation. But I’m here to suggest that they should be. In this post, I offer some tips on how you can use AI or ML in conjunction with production data to drive a smarter type of regression testing to [...]

Sauce Performance: Get Machine Learning-Driven Insights While Using Existing Selenium Scripts

Today, speed to market and user experience matter just as much to customers as product quality. Software developers find themselves under increasing pressure to deliver fast and flawlessly, and there’s simply no margin for error.

Practical Tips for Getting More out of CI/CD Test Automation

More may not always be better. But in the world of test automation, it is. If you’re already automating some of your software tests, you likely want to reap even more from test automation. If that describes you, keep reading. This post discusses various strategies for getting more out of automated testing — including but not limited to automating more tests. What are the goals of test [...]

Looking Back at Our Look Ahead: Revisiting 2018 Software Testing Predictions

A year ago, at the outset of 2018, we (specifically, Vince Power, an experienced IT professional who also happens to be a very nice guy) took a look on the Sauce Labs blog at some of the trends that might define the world of software testing in the new year. As all good software testers know, testing involves not just vetting something before you release it into the world, but also revisiting [...]

Predictions for a Digitally Excellent 2019

One of my favorite things about the start of any new year is the flurry of predictions from thought leaders across the technology industry. Some will prove out, others won’t. In either case, it’s always exciting and invigorating to see what the best and brightest expect in the year to come. That’s especially true as we flip the calendar to 2019 and kick off the last year (can [...]

Simulators vs. Emulators: What’s the Difference, Anyway?
Posted by Chris Riley in MobileMobile Development & TestingSoftware Development & Testing

In the world of software testing, it’s common to hear folks talk about simulators and emulators as if the terms are synonymous. To a certain extent, that makes sense. Simulators and emulators are similar in many ways, and the differences between them don’t always matter from the perspective of a test engineer. But the fact remains that simulators and emulators are different beasts. If [...]

What Developers Should Know About Software Testing
Posted by Chris Riley in Software Development & Testing

If you’re a developer, you may not think that software testing has much to do with you, or that you have much to do with software testing. But thinking this way is selling yourself short. It’s true that traditionally, software testing has been the focus of QA engineers who are dedicated to the role of ensuring that software behaves and performs as required to meet user expectations. [...]

Effectively Utilizing Production Testing Data
Posted by Scott Fitzpatrick in Guest Blog PostsSoftware Development & Testing

The term “testing in production” refers to a process that is critical to thoroughly testing an application. It’s the process of continuing to test and monitor code post-release for both disaster recovery preparation and user experience analysis. The process of setting up production testing is easy enough—you simply extend your testing tools and workflows to cover [...]
