A Guide to Successful User Acceptance Testing for Websites and Digital Products

User Acceptance Testing (UAT) is one of the most important tests companies need to perform before launching a website or product. Especially if they are developing websites or digital products for clients in their daily business like agencies do. Not doing it, can cost thousands of dollars if you want to fix a bug right before going live. It is estimated that software bugs cost the worldwide economy 1.1 trillion US$ in 2016.

A Survival Guide to Test Driven Development and Unit Testing

I have a love/hate relationship with test driven development and unit testing.

I’ve been both an ardent supporter of these “best practices,” but I’ve also been more than skeptical of their use.

One of the big problems in software development is when developers—or sometimes managers—who mean well apply “best practices” simply because they are best practices and don’t understand their reason or actual use.
