For those who aren’t familiar with this month program led by Ministry of Testing, the full details are HERE.
I plan to stand up for this challenge (Tweeter handle to follow this program is: #30daysoftesting
For day 1, I’ve bought the following book (Testing in 30+ open source tools, 2nd Edition), and i plan on reading it (well – large portion of it, it’s more than 1200 pages) – the book highlight the main trend i am seeing over the past 12-18 months in the digital space (especially Mobile) where many new open-source test frameworks are being introduced to the market aiming to make both Dev and Testers lifes easier.
With the amount of new open-source tools in the market agile teams can achieve the following:
- Faster test development
- Fine tune the test environment to meet complex product requirements
- Develop and execute tests from the Dev/Test native environment (IDE)
- Execute and receive actionable feedback faster
With the above benefits, it is clear that today’s agile teams have a lot to gain by embracing open-source compared to traditional proprietary testing solutions.
Looking forward to update on 2nd-30th day of this program
