Welcome to the Software Tester Blog

Test automation and software craftsmanship

Benjamin Bischoff, Test Automation Engineer (SDET) at trivago N.V. (ex Ubisoft)

Building a test strategy is tricky. There are many moving parts, and every organization is different. Where do you start? What do you prioritize?.

In this webinar presented by BrowserStack (10th November 2020, 8 am PT / 4 pm UTC), I will talk about the rationale behind our current end-to-end test strategy.

Sometimes, you have to look back to solve a problem. In this post, I will explain how I created a plugin based architecture for our end to end test framework using Java's 20 year old Service Provider Interface.

This is my talk about the processes and technologies of end to end testing for trivago's core web application. This was a live broadcast for the Breakpoint 2020 online testing conference hosted by BrowserStack.

I already wrote an article about my favorite bug for this blog. Two days ago, we discovered one that is even more obscure...

Breakpoint 2020 is a 4-day virtual summit on everything testing. As I will be one of the speakers, BrowserStack did an interview with me.

In this post, I will show you a simple way to take an existing Jenkins (test) pipeline and run it continuously until it reaches a maximum number of runs. We use this to run our complete test suite continuously during the night in order to gather failure data.

This is part four of the mini series "Magic principles in test automation". Forcing has multiple meaning in magic as well as software development - in this article I will try to explain both.

There are different ways to monitor a system to ensure its performance, stability, reliability and resilience. Along with the "usual suspects", we also use end to end tests for this purpose.
