Everyday Testing

Colin Campbell, Test Analyst at Edge Testing

We all like to solve problems, it’s something that gives us all a great deal of satisfaction. When we attempt to solve problems, we can’t consider them solved unless we prove it through a test of some sort. Some tests we perform seem so simple and are repeated so many times, that we stop consciously thinking about them as tests - they become part of our habits and daily lives.

Top 5 Open Source Testing Tools

Jim McLean, Test Lead at Edge Testing

When compiling a top 5 list the biggest difficulty is whittling down the large list of testing tools available under open source licence.  So, forgive me if I have not included your favourite.  Also bear in mind that I have only included open source tools.  There is also a large selection of tools that are free to use but are not released under open source licensing.  Free does not mean it is open source.

Marc Condy, Test Analyst, Edge Testing

Not Making Mistakes = Competitive Advantage

Duncan Small, Test Manager at Edge Testing

Ask who Paul Elvstrom is and unless you sail, you are unlikely to know. He is a member of very elite group of athletes who has won 4 consecutive individual gold medals at the Olympics (1948, 1952, 1956 and 1960). He was the forefather of many of the techniques still used in today’s racing dinghies and a pioneer and innovator. So what, you may ask, has Paul Elvstrom to do with the high tech world of today.

Testing behind closed doors – 'when' is as important as 'what'

Rich Mort, New Business Director - Edge Testing

My Dad was an airline pilot during the golden years of commercial travel. He flew a Super VC 10, a rugged airliner designed to cope with short, dusty African runways. Its undercarriage was tough, really tough, designed to work like the claws of a bird of prey, once it gripped the tarmac that was it!
