Technology is rapidly changing the way we live our lives. It has a knock-on effect on many things, but what does it mean for you and software testing? Here we take a look ahead to see what the world of QA can expect in 2018.
It’s Friday night and I’m running late. I need to pick up some groceries and a bottle of wine on my way home. Like most of my trips to the supermarket, I want to be in and out as quickly as possible. The fact that I’m running late only heightens the need for a swift getaway.
I couldn’t believe it happened - as I sat down at my desk, I opened my laptop and I was hit with the news I knew the cryptocurrency community had been dreading might happen eventually.
CTO’s must think about 2018 as the year they focus on QA as a pathway to growth. QA presents an opportunity to deliver exceptional experiences for customers.

We were sitting there in a room trying to work out how on earth this was even practical. The biggest concern they had was he might get stopped by airport security and held up. Nobody could afford a screw up at this point but what else could they do?

The last six months of the year always seem to be an interesting time for developers and early-adopters of new devices. This week, Google launched the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL - this time last month we were debating what Apple will reveal in their annual September launch (they blessed us with three new devices, which I’m sure hasn’t passed you by).
When new devices launch for the first time, developers usually scramble to test their app or website on these devices before early adopters of new gadgets find any critical issues that haven’t been picked up on. Apple is moving into a territory now which used to be wholly owned by android fragmentation - they’ve introduced devices which require careful planning between the variations.
