Report from StarEast 2011 | Software Testing Club

Report from StarEast 2011 | Software Testing Club | software testing | Scoop.it
Some people wonder why I present at several conferences each year, since I’m not a consultant. The answer is that I learn a lot at conferences, and meet helpful people, and the only way I get to go is if I’m invited to do a tutorial so that I get a free conference registration and get my expenses covered. It’s fun to catch up with friends and colleagues, and make new ones. In this Twitter age, I get a huge kick out of meeting Tweeps in person, which I always do at conferences!

Lessons From a Cloud Failure: It’s Not Amazon, It’s You | software testing | Scoop.it
Amazon’s cloud-hosted Web Services experienced a catastrophic failure last week, knocking hundreds of sites off the web. Some developers saw the AWS outage as a warning about what happens when we rely too much on the cloud. But the real failure of Amazon’s downtime is not AWS, but the sites that use it.

Coordinating your automated and manual test management

Coordinating your automated and manual test management | software testing | Scoop.it
To summarize the post, it talked about the fact that some QA teams that have automation in place still run part of their automatic test cases manually.

WHY do they do this? Some of the reasons I got were that (1) they like running some of their tests manually as well since they are “really important”, (2) that automation cannot be trusted 100%, (3) there is no clear definition or knowledge of what is exactly automated, and (4) they run test manually in order to update their test management system with the results (of their automation) and be able to generate complete and comprehensive reports for their management.

Fundamental performance and scalability concepts - Web application performance and scalability

Fundamental performance and scalability concepts - Web application performance and scalability | software testing | Scoop.it
Before exploring performance and scalability issues in web applications, its worth taking a closer look at some universal concepts that are equally used across programming languages, permanent storage technologies and operating systems in the context of performance and scalability topics. In this chapter we'll explore the following concepts in detail:

Performance and scalability
Latency and throughput
Processes and threads
Concurrency and Parallelism
Bits, bytes and encodings
Sessions
Asynchronous design
Decoupling
Caching
Fault tolerance, replication and synchronization
Distributed computing

You will find such concepts recurring themes in the book, reason why its important to familiarize yourself with them from the outset.
