Testing for Developers: Testing Types and Definitions

DZone

performance testing training definitions forms of testingIn the series, we will define the basic terms that every developer needs to know about testing. The purpose is to give all team members a shared understanding of the fundamental terminology of quality assurance and all related processes. Later, this will improve communication and reviews quality. It will further increase the testing capabilities of each member. In this part, we will talk about the different testing types.

Get Crisp on the Definition of Quality

DZone

When we talk about quality we may think of a fine piece of furniture or the quality service we receive at a fancy restaurant but what does quality mean in the context of software? I find that when we talk about the domain of ideas, and software is in the domain of ideas, that we often use metaphors that are based upon the physical world and are not always accurate. In the physical world, the notion of quality has to do with fine craftsmanship and longevity.

Understanding APIs: What They Are and Why They Matter

Rigor

Web Performance api APIs in action definition of API rigorReading time 4 min People all over the world consume data on a daily basis across a variety of networks, geographies, and devices. You’ve probably lost track of how many applications are on your phone or tablet – applications for shopping, ordering food, checking the weather, reading the news, tracking the stock market, and sharing images, videos, and other content with friends and family (and maybe a few strangers).

Big O Notation - Why? When? Where?

Let's rephrase it, and make this definition a little simpler and closer to software development. What Is Big O? This is a mathematical term that originated in the early 20th century in number theory and came almost immediately to computer science as questions arose with resource optimization.

A Simple Implementation of Remote Configuration For SwiftUI

First of all, a quick definition of Remote Configuration: It is a way to customize the behaviour of a desired system based on certain parameters that are stored on a remote location. Many well-known libraries will give you this feature, and many of us are tempted to just integrate this big, complex, and unknown dependency without evaluating the real cost of it. swift

The Performance Inequality Gap, 2021

Alex Russell

Developers, particularly in Silicon Valley firms, are definitionally wealthy and enfranchised by world-historical standards. TL;DR: A lot has changed since 2017 when we last estimated a global baseline resource per-page resource budget of 130-170KiB.

Measure What You Impact, Not What You Influence

CSS Wizardry

A thing I see developers do time and time again is make performance-facing changes to their sites and apps, but mistakes in how they measure them often lead to incorrect conclusions about the effectiveness of that work. This can go either way: under- or overestimating the efficacy of those changes.

The Future of Performance Testing

Of course, more sophisticated tools may definitely do better job in creating a simple and intuitive interface (still providing a way to invoke more sophisticated functionality when needed). One of main challenges is definitely scripting and scripts fragility. It definitely changes the performance engineering strategy and there are many questions to be sorted out eventually.

Are Times still Good for Load Testing?

Alex Podelko

If we speak about open source tools, we definitely see some improvement – but in many areas they are still behind the best commercial tools (yes, many may not need these advanced features and yes, often there are other ways to do it – but when you need them, it is a problem) and it doesn’t appear that we see many (if any) new interesting products. My post Good Times for Load Testing was published in 2014.

Performance Testing with Open Source Tools – Myths and Reality

Alex Podelko

While Federico definitely has good points there, there is some truth in these myths too. The open source load testing tools definitely advanced a lot in both maturity and functionality – but there are many areas where they are behind best commercial tools (and if it matters for a specific user is another subject – for some it may not). You have to remember this was in 2015, a lot has changed since, Gatling is definitely a stronger tool.

f() vs f(void) in C vs C++

Nick Desaulniers

Upon closer inspection, it seemed like a difference between function definitions, particularly f() vs f(void). Is an error in C, but surprisingly C++ is less strict here, not only allowing it but also taking the semantics of the definition. Needless to say, If you write code like that where your function declarations and definitions do not match, you will be put in prison. We need the help of -Wmissing-prototypes to flag the mismatch between declaration and definition. (An

Regression Testing: Tools and Techniques

DZone

Regression Testing, by its definition, is a type of software testing to confirm that a recent program or code change has not adversely affected existing features. It is done to make sure that the existing application is intact with the newly added features and nothing is broken. In order to achieve that, the existing test cases are executed selectively or sometimes completely. Regression testing ensures that the old code still works once the new code changes are done.
