A Measured Approach to Change

I just read the book: Who moved my Cheese?, a simple story about the different ways that people deal with change.  Lots of people rip it as simplistic ... I liked it!

Reading this made me think about process change as it applies to software development. I've mentioned in previous posts, that our development group is constantly evaluating tools and processes to ensure that our developers and test engineers have the most friction free work-flows possible. We've built a team that is really open to change, so that they can engineer world-class... Continue reading »

Regression Testing

As technology and specifically computing becomes more pervasive, so does the importance and quality of the software that lives inside of it. When software is being built, it’s critical for development teams to perform thorough testing to avoid product release delays and recalls, and most importantly, ensure that safety-critical software requirement are met.

There are a number of different types of software tests that are run to achieve maximum performance, and automated regression testing is one of the most critical. Let’s take a look at automated regression testing’s “5 Ws” to better define its meaning and role within the software development process.

What is it?
