No matter how time-consuming the task of tech development is, making sure that it is functional and free of bugs is easily daunting.
Everyone knows that a developer’s worst nightmare is their code crashing. And God forbid this happens in front of the client or after launch!
Yikes! But mistakes happen, and bugs happen. We need to make sure that we don’t land in dangerous waters because of something we missed doing. And what’s that?
Testing our Tech!The tech team at Terasol works round the clock on a project and equally hard on making and it free of any glitches. Bugs and glitches in an app or website, compromise its functionality and hence user experience. So, what are the ways we employ while testing our tech before launching them?
1. Staging Environment
We’ve made a mobile application or a website but how do we know how it actually looks to the users and visitors?
Nothing feels like a launched website. Hence we create a staging environment. This is the stage to make the replica of the environment of software created before production. It is a step before the deployment process. The benefit of this process is that it’s hidden from users and gives us the liberty to make as many changes as we like without disturbing the public domain.
2. A/B TestingA/B testing, although time-consuming, can provide a lot of insights on our mobile app. It is also called bucket testing. It constitutes of randomized test with analytical statistics using two variables or two versions of the website. We can decide which button or which template is working well and which is not. By making subtle but significant changes we can create a really impactful design.
4. Manual Testing
Nothing beats the importance of manual testing. Who knows the tech better than the people directly involved with its development?
Our tech team does extensive and exhaustive tests on our mobile/web apps to make sure it is bug-free and all the errors are solved. It is one of the most primitive technique used for testing out tech, and helps with the critical errors and bugs in your software.
5. User Acceptance Testing
Well, no matter how well you have designed a mobile app if the users can’t figure their way through it is of no use. And this is why we have our non-technical team use the app unguided under unbiased scenarios. This is a crucial step before launch. This step determines that our tech is free of glitches and easy on usability.
If all things go well after UAT, our tech is ready for launch! Want us to develop mobile apps for your business? Drop us a message!
