Software testing & QA services
What is Quality Assurance and what can it offer you?
Quality Assurance (QA) focuses on quality analysis of developed software. In comparison to software testing, QA defines the processes used to evaluate development stages (code development, product design and others). QA prevents potential problems and informs us about how we should verify the modules implemented in our projects. QA specialists are often also responsible for software testing processes.
Why do we test our software?
Before we deliver applications to our clients, we need to ensure that our code doesn’t have bugs or other potential issues that we didn’t catch during the development process. For this purpose, we perform at least several tests, both manual and automatic, every time we develop a new module or functionality. Additionally, our software developers always write tests for their code and forward them to the software testing team.
Why is testing applications worthwhile?
When it comes to small, simple web or mobile applications, it seems that a dedicated team of QA testers is not necessary. A manual tester will often suffice to check all functionalities step by step. In larger projects, with several dozen or more new functionalities, the situation is completely different. In such cases we often create completely new modules and functions that require diligent people to check that they operate correctly. This is especially important when the application has complex business logic.
In large IT projects, the presence of errors is not unexpected. In most cases, they do not result from the ignorance of programmers, but from conflicts between the applied technological solutions. From our experience, the support of a dedicated QA team is profitable for the client. The team of testers has more experience in finding bugs in applications than the developers themselves. An additional advantage is the fact that the testers did not create the given functionalities, so it is easier for them to look at them from a user’s perspective.
Best technologies for software testing
At iMakeable, our developers create unit tests during the functionality development process. When the code passes these tests, our testing team performs manual tests. Next, our QA specialists write automatic tests which will also be used in further software development processes to check if older modules work perfectly with the new ones. We like to use Mocha, Jest, Selenium and Cypress for software testing. We also cover tests in other programming languages which are used in the development of web and mobile applications.
Automatic tests are run with commands, programs or scripts. It is necessary to write automatic tests during the software development process as they give us information about all the bugs present in new functionalities. Automatic tests include unit tests, regression tests, integration tests or e2e tests.
At first sight, manual tests don’t seem to be necessary, because the software development team has tested the code. Nothing is further from the truth! Since testers do not develop the application’s code, they have a substantially different point of view when testing, which results in much more efficient bug reporting.
