We are very happy that we have the chance to participate at MWC 2018 as part of the Romanian pavilion. We are presenting an improved version of AltTap, our testing robot. The showcase this year is about the interaction with a POS device.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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 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.
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 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.
Those bad Bad habits, who doesn’t want to get rid of them?…
Let’s consider the following hypothesis: small habits that slow me down in my work or stand in the way of solving problems could accumulate and have quite an impact on my work. This could mean that they are the silent, unnoticeable factors that influence my testing in a bad way. One such habit may not make a big difference, but when dealing with more, they could have a considerable influence.
