How Tos & Tutorials

In recent years, the most commonly used development method has been shifting from more traditional models like waterfall to a more iterative model: agile software development. Agile development processes often use continuous delivery or continuous deployment, and automated testing is essential part of any of these processes in order to keep iterations as fast as possible. Testomato can be easily integrated into your existing deployment process, regardless of what set up your team is using. We’ve talked about how we use a mix of agile techniques to develop Testomato before on our blog. In this post, we wanted to share how we integrate Testomato…

We’re very excited to announce a new third-party app integration with our friends over at PagerDuty! Since our launch, we’ve had a lot of requests to provide SMS alerts for problems found during tests. Native support for this feature is on our roadmap, but we decided to integrate other options for the time being. That’s where PagerDuty comes in! PagerDuty is a reliable SaaS provider that plugs into IT monitoring tools and provides alerts of all forms. Connecting PagerDuty means you’ll now be able to receive alerts (SMS, phone calls, iOS/Android push notifications) with automatic alert escalation for all your Testomato incidents,…

We love experimenting! This is the second post in a series about alternative ways (besides testing) Testomato can be used.  A few posts back we shared how to track app prices in iTunes, and today, we’ve got another great hack for Testomato! We recently had the pleasure of speaking with Tristan Bailey and hearing some of his feedback on our service. During our discussion, he shared an awesome idea for a way Testomato can be integrated into a development process. Tristan often sets up CMS sites that require clients to supply their own copy before the project goes live. His suggestion was to…

Most of our users use Testomato to test their web projects, but our team likes experimenting with other ways our service can be used. Roman, one of our senior developers, has been using Testomato to track app prices for an app that he’s interested in buying on iTunes. He’s been wanting to get 1Password for his computer at work, but would prefer not to pay the slightly pricey $49.99 for the Mac App. So, he decided to use Testomato to alert him to any changes in price and hopefully save a few bucks at the same time!

While Testomato focuses on front-end UI, our team knows from personal experience how important it is to be able to find and address issues on the back-end. As developers, we often face challenges with our code. If something goes wrong, it’s often hard for us to figure out what has happened. Debuggers simplify that process by allowing us to figure out why our code is not behaving the way we expect. They also show us how to investigate the way systems work and the problems that may occur within them. Learning to properly debug can help you: Debug complex code…
