When the global pandemic induced lockdowns world-wide and trapped Team Inflectra indoors in mid-March 2020, we started to think about how we could limit the description it caused to our team, but also our fans everywhere. With everyone working remotely, we soon realized we craved others' company and wanted to stay in touch. We found that the best way to stay connected to our partners, customers, fans, and friends was through weekly virtual happy hours. We called these casual get-togethers Tipsy Testing - to emphasize their loose focus on software testing, agile management, DevOps, software engineering, and project management. Tipsy Testing is unscripted and is completely listener-driven, as we try to answer as many listener-supplied questions as we can cover in an hour-long segment.

Here is where Tipsy Testing stands today:Read More

Innovations in technology have become synonymous with business growth and development. Regardless of whether a company specializes in software or application development, all businesses now have some interaction with software or application testing.
Software or application testing involves the process of executing a program or app with the intention of finding bugs or glitches. Whether it is creating a new responsive website, building a new mobile application, or developing a new software component, the system has to be tested. The rate of software development in general and testing in particular is rising for many enterprises, which has increased the need for more automated software testing.

These little nuggets always work and are not reliant on the interface to perform their duties. Done correctly they can provide information that is three or four layers deep in Windows. Read More
