Some attendees of these free webinars work for such service providers. Whichever camp you&#39;re in, you might need to know whether the services being provided are really meeting the needs. Can you measure success? Yes, and it&#39;s easier than you might think. There are a dozen concrete measures of the effectiveness, efficiency, innovation, responsiveness, and attitude associated with these services. In this free webinar, Rex will discuss these metrics, helping both sides of the service relationship do a better job. </span></p>   <p style="MARGIN-TOP:0px;MARGIN-BOTTOM:0px"><span style="FONT-FAMILY:&#39;Times New Roman&#39;;COLOR:#000000;FONT-SIZE:10pt"><a class="ecximgCaptionAnchor" shape="rect" href="https://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001Fc8tGn9PI21dQFGS5iEwz9RmxghdMjZKxfD7dauzOWbtgWG_6hOeP2vnsk5oAISuWkFdBICo9MxRt_IAsW6fMcdKVllaDQT2dKguvexdyhM=" target="_blank"><img src="https://blu169.mail.live.com/Handlers/ImageProxy.mvc?bicild=&amp;canary=rfIsZ71G4APvUB19HndLgoBxPRBpQHORptgBT%2f3nUgw%3d0&amp;url=http%3a%2f%2fih.constantcontact.com%2ffs051%2f1101616311951%2fimg%2f98.jpg" alt="PMI" border="0" height="34" hspace="5" vspace="5" width="61" align="left"></a> </span> </p> <p style="MARGIN-TOP:0px;FONT-FAMILY:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;MARGIN-BOTTOM:0px"> </p><div><span>Earn 1.5 PDUs for attendance of this webinar.</span></div> <div style="MARGIN-TOP:0px;FONT-FAMILY:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;MARGIN-BOTTOM:0px"><span style="FONT-SIZE:10pt">  </span></div> <div style="FONT-FAMILY:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;COLOR:#000000;FONT-SIZE:10pt"> <div> <div><span style="FONT-SIZE:10pt">Each live webinar session consists of a one hour presentation and a 30 minute post-webinar question-and-answer opportunity.  These webinars are free.  Webinar attendance registers you to win a free e-learning course from RBCS.<br><br></span><div><u><b>Registration:</b></u></div> <div><span> </span></div> <span>To support our international clientele, we will present this webinar at two times: </span> <div> <div style="MARGIN-TOP:0px;MARGIN-BOTTOM:0px">  </div> <div>For the Americas, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East: 1:00 PM Central US Time (May 23) and 8:00 PM Central Europe Time (May 23).

Some of these organizations are finding practical ways to integrate testing into Agile lifecycles. In this presentation, Rex will address challenges and opportunities associated with Agile, different ways of adapting Agile lifecycles and the testing within those lifecycles, and how Agile differs from traditional lifecycles. We&#39;ll examine tools and metrics for Agile projects. We&#39;ll address whether Agile can be used for outsourced projects. We&#39;ll look at different options for organizing test teams on Agile projects, and why only some of these options can work. Rex will offer his thoughts on Agile and quality, and what skills and personalities work best in Agile projects.

The popularity of this methodology can be accredited to several reasons such as the product development lifecycles and Go to market cycles (GTM) are shrinking in the light of ever changing business dynamics.<br /><br />Everyone wants to put the product out in the market as soon as possible capturing the customer share as soon as possible to gain control on the changing business dynamics. Agility, it seems is paying dividends for such short GTMs and providing a quick ROI. <br /><br />Watch the complete video tutorial of Software Testing in Agile Methodology: <iframe allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/HUw0CduyNTs" width="420"></iframe> <br /><br />Source:&nbsp;<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUw0CduyNTs&amp;feature=player_embedded">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUw0CduyNTs&amp;feature=player_embedded</a><br /><a href="https://www.techgig.com/webinars/Software-Testing-in-Agile-Methodology-164">https://www.techgig.com/webinars/Software-Testing-in-Agile-Methodology-164</a></div>qa qahttps://plus.google.com/115306796995495133846noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7686363870094290606.post-6723334768970122962012-08-13T10:59:00.001-07:002012-08-13T11:04:55.593-07:00Acceptance Test Driven Development | AgileTrek 2012 Webinar Series<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><div>The AgileTrek Symposium provides a forum for leading coaches, evangelists, and practitioners to share experiences and proven methods in agile software projects.

In such an economy, there is increasing need to achieve faster time-to-market with improved quality at a lower total cost of ownership. Implicit in all of this is the drive to seek more innovative and collaborative ways of working to deliver business assurance to the end-users, besides merely providing verification and validation services.</div> <div><br></div><div>Quality Engineering (QE) is a key operating paradigm in the overall quality ecosystem with a structured and accountable end-to-end quality governance.

This tool supports the following:<div><ul><li>Functional Testing</li><li>Load Testing</li><li>Mobile Testing</li><li>Performance Testing.</li> </ul></div><div><br></div><div>In this post we will give you a brief introduction to Functional Testing with Test Studio.</div><div><br></div><div><div>Many automated testing tools claim to be easy to use. This one really is. The intuitive UI emulates the familiar look and feel of handheld consumer devices. Tasks can be quickly and easily completed with the product&#39;s point-and-click interface. Additionally, Testcase maintenance is brought to a new level thanks to a number of built-in features – reuse of elements, browser abstraction, on-the-spot validation, and built-in DOM explorer.</div> <div><br></div><div>Test Studio Builds automated tests for your apps regardless of their underlying technology, complexity or interactivity. Test Studio Telerik are the first to support all the latest technologies - HTML5, AJAX, Silverlight and WPF! Test Studio is the one stop shop for testing JavaScript calls, Telerik controls, dynamic page synchronization, client-side behaviors, complex UI virtualizations and XAML animations.</div> <div><br></div><div><b><u>Benefits:</u></b></div><div><b>Simplified manual test creation, execution and management</b></div><div><br></div><div>Forget about spreadsheets! Put all your automated and manual tests in one place. Test Studio's Manual Test Type makes manual test creation and execution more organized, productive and faster than before. Speed up the execution time of your manual tests by automating time-consuming repetitive tasks.</div> <div><br></div><div>Read: <a href="https://www.telerik.com/documents/automated-testing-tools/Manage-Your-Manual-Tests-with-Test-Studio.pdf">https://www.telerik.com/documents/automated-testing-tools/Manage-Your-Manual-Tests-with-Test-Studio.pdf</a></div> <div><br></div><div><b>Robust test recording and playback</b></div><div><br></div><div>Test Studio introduces a next-gen approach to test recording with its built-in recording surface. Not only are you able to create your tests with point-and-clicks, you can easily add conditional logic without writing a single line of code, or extract a value from a page element to be used later in the test.</div> <div><br></div><div><br></div><div><b>Record once, run against all major browsers</b></div><div><br></div><div>Test Studio is a functional testing tool that offers an easy and quick way to test your web application in all the major browsers. No need to tweak and duplicate your tests for different browsers any more – have a test recorded once and execute against: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Chrome.</div> <div><br></div><div><b>Visual Studio plug-in for coding pros</b></div><div><br></div><div>Test Studio also ships with a developer-focused solution that gives you maximum control over your code and tests. It&#39;s where you need it most - tightly integrated in Visual Studio. The powerful built-in test recorder can convert your tests to .NET code which can be further customized or extended in Visual Studio if needed.</div> <div><br></div><div><b>Test scheduling, execution and reporting</b></div><div><br></div><div>Leverage multiple machines to execute test runs in parallel saving vast amounts of execution time. Test Studio allows you to schedule and execute tests across the entire testing environment. Automatically collect results into a centralized repository and then analyze them on your local machine! Get email notifications upon run completion.</div> <div><br></div><div><b>Much more efficient regression testing</b></div><div><br></div><div>Test maintenance is smoother with Test Studio. We don't use absolute coordinates which guarantees your tests will not break if the application layout changes. Better yet, all elements are stored in the &quot;Elements repository&quot;. If there are multiple tests that use the same element, it will be referenced from the &quot;Elements Explorer&quot; instead of being duplicated in the test.</div> <div><br></div><div><b>Exploratory Testing</b></div><div><br></div><div>Test Studio Explore is an in-browser extension that helps you report bugs directly from your application. Attach screenshots, ideas, and annotations, while browsing. Share your feedback via email, or export it to Word and PDF. All this with a simple click of a button – no additional installations are needed.</div> <div><br></div><div>Reference: <a href="https://www.telerik.com">https://www.telerik.com</a></div></div> qa qahttps://plus.google.com/115306796995495133846noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7686363870094290606.post-43377362377075209292012-04-21T11:02:00.000-07:002012-04-21T11:03:05.340-07:00Making Risk-Based Testing a Success - Webinar<div><br></div><div><b>Broadcast Date and Time: April 24, 2012, 2 p.m. EDT</b></div><div><br></div><div>The <b>primary role of risk-based testing</b> is to optimize available resources and time without affecting the quality of your product. Risk-based testing helps address the rise in business and technological complexity and the growing size of applications by prioritizing test cases based on the defined criticality of a function, encouraging impact assessment of an application functionality failure and increasing testing effectiveness. Despite these benefits, risk-based testing is still used or deployed in a limited manner across organizations. </div> <div><br></div><div>In this web seminar, speakers Russ Queen and Vasudeva Naidu discuss the two most common reasons that limit the adoption of risk-based testing: the lack of well-defined methodology to measure the success of risk-based testing and lack of stakeholder involvement in planning risk-based testing.
