Be with (automation), Feel without (the hassle)

Fast and Furious

Do it, and do it now Software development projects, applications of all kinds, are nowadays all about fast, fast, fast. Unlike the old days (not so many years ago…) there are less and less software solutions and tools that are not updated often - and often can even mean many times a day. The [...]

Sailing with Testers (Part VIII)

Not Sailing At All As we’ve posted last month, times are challenging. Who thought we wouldn't be able to sail for such a long time?
