In today's world, our tasks are increasingly accomplished with the assistance of machines and applications. We guide them, and they respond accordingly. Ever noticed how machines seem to understand us better than ever? That's AI, or Artificial Intelligence, working its magic. From voice assistants to self-driving cars, AI is becoming a big part of our lives. But for these machines to work just right, they need the perfect training.
AI is like giving brains to machines.
A young child is initially taught to count on their fingers; eventually, they transition to counting without fingers, yielding commendable results or think about self-driving cars. They've learned how to drive safely by studying countless real-life driving situations. Or think of software that can summarize long articles for you. It knows what's important in a sea of words. But all this is possible only when AI is trained well.
Time plays an important role in our day-to-day life. From numerous moments of spending time, one is the time given for remembering something, may be in seconds or minutes or hours. This is where Notes taking takes place, to save these moments by allowing us to capture and write down the things to be remembered somewhere just like taking photographs.
Now we know about Notes taking but what about the adjective “Effective” what is the role of that here? Why is it important? Let us answer these questions.
Effective means successfully producing the result that you want. The wrote down things must be,
Let us now first see the impacts if these points are not followed and notes are ineffectively created.
Example 1 : We are trying to write a code that includes a specific syntax with some fixed keywords or just say it as a statement.
Example 2 : Testing Credentials like a dummy username or password for testing of an in- development application purpose says if we have saved it in a chat box which with new conversations gets hidden and again scrolling and searching everytime we require it.
Now if any, how if a Newbie finds the statement in some suggested file or expression or a book but got confused about parenthesis used, pick lines from where to where, which things / variables / data fields etc. will get replaced in new development.
All like these and many other similar situations can be handled using EFFECTIVE NOTES MAKING. Let us see what can be done and how it can be useful.
- Title : Date and Time functions - this can be a folder or a file will include all notes related to only date and time so whenever we want to work on datetime we can quickly peek at this place, even a Newbie can understand if these notes are shared.
* CSS styles which will point to a page where all notes related to CSS are kept. here again a sub menu can be created as
- Colors : This will include all key points / notes related to colors in CSS
- Media queries : This will include all key points / notes related to media queries in CSS
Importance of JIRA
JIRA is a tool which allows you to maintain all the steps that are to be executed to develop a project considering all requirements and research required.
Application testing can be defined as going through the way the software works, finding out error areas also called evaluation of software for satisfying end-user requirements. This can be explained as testing, analyzing, or examining the working of a software/application before launching it for users, to resolve any bug or a mistake is a crucial step included in the aim of getting a positive response from users.
As a person responsible for testing different applications it is important to understand Testing lifecycle which can be shown as follows,
Included in these lifecycle events there are some phases that are to be considered for performance testing they are shown as follows
Application Testing Types
Challenges in Application Testing
In the basic arithmetic calculator application numbers are taken as the first input, second comes the operator it may be (add, subtract, multiply, etc.) and third is the number with which the first number is to be operated.
So, it is the responsibility of a tester to confirm the working by using multiple input combinations for example: do testing for 1+1, 2+3, 10+101, 12.30+8.90, etc.
This may showcase any errors like,
Similarly, for video viewing applications such as YouTube or Netflix, Checks have to be done on all possibilities the user will use to watch a video and the test cases are,
Example: If “user-A” selects “video-A” to watch, and “user-B” selects “video-B”, but the tester should confirm that “user-B” should not see “video-A” by mistake instead of “video-B” and vice versa.
Testing must also include if all the breakpoints, and contents added only for debugging purposes are completely removed from the code before launching an application.
So finally, all the possibilities are to be checked by a tester as well as a developer by becoming a user for an instance, this will obviously take the progress graph up.
So to overcome the above given challenges we can have some tools that will help QAs to manage and regulate the test process. But now the problem is which tool is to selected be used, let’s see some examples,
Having different screens/browsers/operating systems in one place cannot be that easy so the solution is to use available tools some of which are mentioned above. There will be new r&d’s every time and the list will get updated with more options.
Today it has become essential for businesses to leverage effective mobile test automation to get scalable, robust, and high-performing applications, for delivering a great experience to users worldwide.
So just by following the life cycle procedure, and using different tools one can get rapid growth in fast delivery to market, effective usage, and positive reach to customers.
