TestPlant CTO, Antony Edwards, was interviewed by Mobile World Live at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year. Antony talks about the key trends in mobile and IoT, and how testing needs to change in order to be more focused on UX.
Gartner Symposium. I always enjoy it. Of course it's a deluge of buzzwords and bombast, but there is substance beneath, and I enjoy thinking about the implications for teams creating software in the future.
This morning I was listening to a talk from someone in the Oil and Gas industry who has actually deployed machine-to-machine, i.e. what everyone talks about as the future of Internet-of-Things but very few have any practical experience of. It was an interesting talk.
Thank you for joining us last week for our annual Summer Reception! What a lovely evening, despite the extraordinary thunder and rain, which added drama to our celebration. But the sun did eventually shine on our terrace.

I recently presented at the Northern Lights conference in Manchester. This conference was hosted by the BCS (British Computing Society), and my talk was “Tools. Techniques. Trouble? Why test automation is getting more difficult, and what can be done about it.” You may have seen my blog post from ahead of the show, but if you haven’t yet, you can find it here.
I focussed on automating user interactions with the System under Test (SUT) and automating the creation of test scripts but not the automation of the testing process itself. I addressed both functional and load testing.
For those who weren’t there, here are the key points that I covered in my presentation:
If you’re looking for fun testing, STAREAST is the place to find it. With an overarching theme of user-experience testing, the undertone of this show was definitely a fun one. Not to mention that it’s set in Orlando, FL., where you can find Disney World, Sea World, Epcot, and more.
