Visit our stand at MWC 2018

If you are visiting MWC this year, come by our stand to talk about testing and check out our testing tools (including our testing robot in action). We will be in Hall 8.0, Stand 8.0I1, at the Romanian IT Pavilion. If you would like to schedule a meeting, contact us here. See you at MWC!

Testing tools we’ve presented at CeBIT

This year at CeBIT we presented three testing tools that we’ve developed for some of our projects.

We always look for smart new ways to test and that is why we have built tools specific to our needs. Here are three of the testing tools we’ve used so far successfully on several projects.

Say hello to AltTap!

Built in the Altom test lab, AltTap is a robot designed to help with and mitigate some of the critical challenges of test automation. It is especially useful in scenarios involving the running of tests on devices of varying screen sizes and resolutions. AltTap’s special power is that of performing automated tests on any type of touchscreen device.

How does it do that exactly? It simulates a human tester by the using of a stylus to perform click actions on a touchscreen. The process is based on an image-recognition algorithm.

Meet us at CeBIT 2016!

We are back at CeBIT 2016! This time, Oana and Bogdan are by Alex’s side!

Our temporary address is Hall 6, Stand F48 or, if it is easier for you to find, the Romanian Pavilion. We are there until Friday, March 18!

Version 2.1 of the SBTM Session Template was released!

In 2014 our colleague Ru created a tool in Google Scripts to support her testing in an organized and measurable way, using the Session Based Test Management method. The tool is available in the Google Templates Gallery via this link https://drive.google.com/a/altom.ro/previewtemplate?id=0Aqk-dNwZsfwrdHlfYTRSN3FKQzlVenBYWUhZUk44REE&mode=public&ddrp=1#.

November at Altom

November at Altom was challenging: conferences, anniversaries and upgrading the office.

So, the first days of November came with a newly decorated office, a greener one. Our wall covered in plants makes the office look better, be healthier and it reminds us of the beautiful nature whilst inside four walls.

@adinnaplus Rapid Software Testing

The week starting with October 26th I attended the courses Rapid Software Testing (3 days) and Rapid Software Testing for Managers (1 day). It was brilliant! I feel I learned so many from both the course material and the trainer James Bach. Further on I’ll detail three things I learned and find valuable, and also mention other things I loved in this course.

October at Altom

October has been a pretty busy month for Altoms: attending conferences and organizing two in one week is not an easy job. But one value that characterize us is teamwork, so we managed to get everything done and spend the last day of the month celebrating Halloween together.
