Product testing is…
Basic — after a developer completes introducing new functionality, it is tested for critical/blocking and major bugs. Before the code goes to stage server, the developer fixes all reported bugs.
Advanced — at the end of each sprint QA engineers test the new functionality, checking the business logic as well as UI/UX. It goes without saying that all reported bugs should be fixed and the product — retested.
All critical or major bugs should vanish into thin air after these two types of software testing. For many startups, this is the final testing point, especially at the proof of concept stage.
Test automation — automated tests are used for large-scale and complex projects. In this case, there is usually a big team working on one and the same project, so changes in one part of the project can lead to critical bugs in another one. While manual testing may be time-consuming, automated tests can be run quickly and perform as much work as one manual tester does during the whole day. As a result, it is also cost-efficient and effective.
Why is testing so important?
Errors are inevitable in any project. Although it cannot be an excuse for your product’s malfunctioning, even such tech giants as Microsoft, Facebook or Google, where thousands of IT professionals work, have software bugs every now and then. Some of these bugs have become legendary.
If you want to build a successful project, it is important to realize that testing is as crucial as development itself. While testing the product, we do our best to fix as many bugs as possible before the product goes live. Sooner or later the bugs will become noticeable and troublesome — for you and for your clients. Critical bugs can even result in losing your clients and affecting your reputation in a negative way.
