Some thoughts on Sauce

We’re started using this service a long time ago, and I can say they improved a lot in the recent years.

Writing effective test cases

Everybody can write a test case. What’s difficult is writing an effective test case. Luckily it’s a learnable skill, but it requires in-depth knowledge of the software it is written for.

Tips for managing and taking care of your VMware machines

Last time we talked about how to best optimize your VM for a smooth work experience. This time we’ll talk about working with VM. These tips will help you avoid loss of time and grief in losing a virtual machine or critical data you have on your partitions. They will make your job easier in a day to day work.

Tip #1

Do not use fdisk or a similar utility to create partition tables, even if it is in the guest operating system on remote VMware ESX servers while you are in the virtual machine on the console. After you add a virtual machine disk by using one or more partitions on a physical disk, never modify the partition tables by running fdisk in the guest operating system.

Android/iPhone application testing – online services

In my previous post I have mentioned mobile application testing on simulator/emulator. This time I will describe the manual mobile application testing using online services. I have searched for online testing tools in Google and found many sites/services. Some of them only allow some devices listed and you can check only a website, by entering the URL. What about the apps made for mobile devices? I continued the search for something where I can test apps and URL’s, too.
