The annual Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Barcelona, Spain, is a great pulse check for what's on the minds of CIOs in large companies (like banks, utilities, telcos, governments). It's not necessarily the place to see the absolute latest technology, but it is the place to see what organizational problems CIOs are trying to solve with technology, and what companies are rolling out next year.

Six Reasons Why We Need Dedicated, Professional Testers

11/7/17 / by Antony Edwards posted in App testing, QA testing, software development, software testing, testing best practices

Yes, eggPlant Functional Supports AngularJS 

10/31/16 / by Pamela Gillaspie posted in AngularJS, eggPlant Functional, software testing, Test automation, Testing, Using eggPlant

For a lot of testing tools, the question of AngularJS support is complicated. Depending on your source, you’ll get something between a no and a sort of; which is why I’m happy to give eggPlant Functional an unequivocal yes.

 eggPlant Functional doesn’t need an AngularJS extension. For code-level tools, a new development framework requires a new test framework.
