Agile methodology nowadays, Scrum or Kanban, is completely different from what we were used to when was it was first presented to us.

We switched from Scrum to Kanban to some hybrid Agile Scrum/Kanban methodology that worked pretty well for us.

Scrum

We used to have 2/4 weeks sprints, with sprint retros and plannings/feature kick-offs.

In an attempt not to be forced to deliver big features in such a small timeframe (2/4 weeks) and also not to raise the team pressure/stress on plannings and commit to specific set of features, we decided to switch to Kanban.

Kanban

With Kanban, we discovered that blocked tasks will just pile up on our board, never being fixed (this will not happen with Scrum, cause you need to deliver the stories you’ve committed to). …

Page load speed metrics

Why do we care so much about a small button that does a little thing in a hidden part of the Developer Tools, and why not create features with much more impact for the billions of users. …


Writing UI tests that are resilient and easy maintainable is hard. Everyone knows that UI tests are slow and flaky but using a few best practices can make the job of implementing and maintaining UI tests a little more easier.

Here are some best practices that we found useful:

  1. use the page object model/robot pattern; this makes the tests easier to understand and update
  2. make the tests run independently from one another and still pass; not fulfilling this will make your tests flaky and give weird behaviours on different environments
  3. use data-*(data-test/data-testid) attributes so that we can keep the tests independent from the changes in the CSS or JS (ex. button id=”main” class=”btn btn-large” data-test=”submit-login-btn”); this will make your tests more resilient to changes in CSS or JS
  4. use more assertions in a single test as the framework should give you enough information related to which check failed; also UI tests take a long time to go to a page so it’s preferable to have more assertions on that page; this will take the number of tests lower and a side effect will also be the running time of the tests will go…


LoadFocus provides a full suite of free cloud testing tools. We offer cloud load testing and website speed testing services, and recently we’ve added a cloud-based web UI testing service that makes life easier to build functional tests and automate the repetitive manual testing of your site.

It’s like Selenium WebDriver, but for projects that are short infrastructure and/or coding expertise to confidently develop and manage automated test suites of UI tests.

With the Automated Website Testing service from LoadFocus.com you can automate manual regression tests in just minutes and run them from the cloud to check for regressions:
