Ah, the fixed price software project. Sounds great in theory... but in practice? Someone’s probably going to end up either in a fit of rage, tears, or both - whether it’s you or your developer (and possibly both of you…).
Do you have a task to achieve? There’s an app for that. Kanban software is now widely used in both businesses as well as in people’s personal lives. However, some of these software products are better than others - as is the case with any type of app! Today we outline our top picks for 2020.
Manual testing of software is time consuming, prone to missed cases and errors, and all around a bad idea, unless you’re just starting out learning to code and need to practice writing full test suites. Selenium is a suite of tools to help automate testing software - and is used to test web apps.
Software testing is an essential activity in the software development process. Without testing, you’ll end up with a buggy product that doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do - a lemon. Black box testing and white box testing are two different types of software testing strategies, that are equally powerful, and even better when combined.
Not all software houses work the same way. The processes, tools, and workflows that go on behind the scenes can vary wildly - and a lot of that comes down to the software development methodology they practice. Agile, Waterfall, Spotify - they’re all different ways of working to build a piece of software, each with its own pros and cons, as well as best-fit projects.
If you’re rubbing shoulders with software developers or even if you’re fresh in the industry, there’s a good chance you’ve heard the terms offshore, onshore, and nearshore software development thrown around. But what exactly does it mean and what’s the difference?
Fixed price contracts can be rather tricky in a Scrum environment. Classic software development and Agile software development are very different from one another, and things that work in one environment don’t necessarily work in another.
