Tipsy Testing - Inflectra Virtual Happy Hour

August 27, 2020

When the global pandemic induced lockdowns world-wide and trapped Team Inflectra indoors in mid-March 2020, we started to think about how we could limit the disruption it caused to our team, but also our fans everywhere. With everyone working remotely, we soon realized we craved others' company and wanted to stay in touch. We found that the best way to stay connected to our partners, customers, fans, and friends was through weekly virtual happy hours. We called these casual get-togethers Tipsy Testing - to emphasize their loose focus on software testing, agile management, DevOps, software engineering, and project management. Tipsy Testing is unscripted and is completely listener-driven, as we try to answer as many listener-supplied questions as we can cover in an hour-long segment. 

Importantly, Tipsy Testing is about supporting each other, making new friends, sharing productivity tips and tricks, learning from one another, and discovering fancy, often local breweries and delicious artisanal cocktails along the way. 

Here is where Tipsy Testing stands today:

Blog: Excellence in Reporting In Agile Projects

March 26, 2019

Based on my experience in managing the program management office, and being a change agent for a product development framework, I believe the purpose of a report is to tell a story! The story not only should tell what has happened but also give a preview of what may come!

STAGE: The 5 Principles Of Application Life-Cycle Management

January 25, 2019

The blog is produced in conjunction with Journey Into Agile With Inflectra - A Free Webinar Course.

Often, when people hear about application lifecycle management, they interpret the terminology with things they know. Project Managers or Scrum Masters will think of the current scope of the project or the specific iteration/release that has a known scope and relatively short duration. Business Analysts, Product Managers, and Product Owners think of the product lifecycle management that has an uncertain scope and unclearly long duration. Architects, Designers, Developers, and Testers focus on software development lifecycle. Operations, Service Delivery, Program Managers and Portfolio Managers think of the deployment considerations, release documentation, and benefits realization.

We recently launched a redesigned site that clears away a lot of old HTML cobwebs, and give us a fresh new look we hope our visitors will enjoy.

#TechTuesday: Resilient UI Test Automation for Web Applications

June 20, 2017

Web applications are a perfect example of a rapidly moving target for UI test automation tools. Agile and DevOps drive small changes and frequent releases.

Answers to these questions are not entirely simple. Test automation is still an art.
