I have expertise with a lot of programing languages and technologies. Currently my interests are in the followings:
Appium has been the most popular framework for functional testing of mobile apps, games and, to a certain extent, mobile web as well.
On Android, Espresso and UIAutomator have been very popular as well. And there are also good reasons why people use/love these frameworks. Espresso provides very fast test execution and UIAutomator provides a light-weight API that is easy to adopt and use your native apps. Both of these frameworks, however, are somewhat limited to native apps only.
Another (promising) new framework that has come into play is the Robot Framework and it quickly took over the Robotium, which used to be one of the mainstream frameworks in the early days of Android test automation.
On iOS Appium and Calabash, both being cross-platform frameworks, have been popular choices for iOS test automation.
Another highly used framework on iOS has been UI Automation.
The most significant changes are occurring on the iOS side. As UI Automation got deprecated by Apple, XCTest and XCUITest got an excellent start to be the next big frameworks in iOS test automation. However, the change by Apple hit Appium, as it was relying on UI Automation as its foundation.
Smart home, home automation, and home security products are a growing trend among the techno-savvy consumers. With the reduction in the size and cost of wireless and computer technology, a large number of consumer products have become “smart” in the last few years – from refrigerators to thermostats to crockpots to security cameras. Nowadays, you can not only see what temperature your home is set to, but you can also see what’s in the fridge for dinner and how your meal is cooking.
Just having a website is not enough. An organization is needed to develop a website that is informative, accessible and user-friendly. To maintain all these qualities, the website should be well tested, and this process of testing a website is known as web testing.
If you want to create robust, browser-based regression automation suites and tests, scale and distribute scripts across many environments, then you want to use Selenium WebDriver, a collection of language specific bindings to drive a browser – the way it is meant to be driven.
As Internet of Things (IoT) gets set to connect about 50 billion devices, quality assurance and testing teams in software development companies begin revamping their testing strategies to fit into the IoT.
The environment in which IoT operates requires a different approach when it comes to testing methods and strategies. Automation has emerged as the most critical component of IoT and most testing methods are being designed to make the most out of it. Software development companies have paced up the rate at which they deliver software services alongside updates and patches hence the need for automation testing becomes even more important.
