By learning from each mistake that you make. How to you learn from each mistake? In this short article, you'll read about a proven technique for learning from mistakes, retrospectives.

Risk-based Mobile Testing

By Rex Black, President, RBCS, Inc.

Risk-based testing is a long-standing best practice, but can you apply it to mobile testing? Absolutely! In this short article, we’ll review what risk-based testing is, and then explain how it can be applied to testing mobile apps. Risk-based testing will help you focus on what to test, how much, and in what order on your mobile apps, which, given the timescales of mobile app testing, is more critical than ever before.
 
For any realistic-sized system, testing cannot reduce the risk of failure in production to zero, due to the impossibility of exhaustive testing. While testing does reduce the risk of failure in production, most approaches to testing reduce risk in a suboptimal and opaque fashion.

ASTQB Virtual Requirements Engineering Foundation Training

This course explores not just why the requirements matter, but how to gather the right requirements, document them effectively and ensure that they are properly implemented. It explores the roles of the requirements engineer and business analyst both in ferreting out the requirements and interacting with the project team to ensure the customer gets the product they want and need. In this course you will learn effective techniques to select the right people from whom you will elicit the requirements. You will learn to document and track these requirements so nothing gets missed. You will learn which team members you must interact with at which stage in the project, and you will learn to track the requirements to completion. Rather than looking at the requirements gathering as the first step in the lifecycle, we look at the requirements throughout the lifecycle as a driving force to implementing the best product possible.
