Under agile software development, a delivery team is expected to have everything it needs to deliver software as one team. That means the developers, testers, DBA's and analysts are all on one delivery team, working together to ship a stream of value. The focus shifts from work-product as a
Languages like Ruby and Python make building things, particularly APIs, incredibly simple. This simplicity enables us to deliver APIs rapidly, but how can you ensure that this increased output doesn't translate to technical sloppiness? After all, simplici
Ever needed a step-by-step walkthrough on functional testing in SoapUI? We heard you, and apart from generally explaining what functional testing is, how an API works, the differences between SOAP and REST, and why testing APIs differs from other forms of
Approaching test automation on products that were not designed to be testable can be something between "a challenge" and impossible. When I find I'm in that situation, usually I'll try to plant the idea with developers; "hey, it might be cool to write a unit test or two for
