Everyone, from analysts to industry players with huge stakes, is predicting the inevitable dominance of Internet of Things or IoT by 2020. When devices seem all set to penetrate and expand in every form, function and task - defining humans at work, at play and at life – how can testing stay away from the repercussions of this new fabric?
Making sure this fabric is robust, stout, smooth and without any snags- now that’s a tester’s job, after all. We cover a vast field of sensors, form-factors, devices, technologies and platforms to make IoT the all-pervading current it is about to become.
Since the last decade or two, there have been tremendous changes in the software development methodologies. Varieties of tools besides agile development, extreme programming, and test-driven development have changed the philosophy and are still modifying how the software development takes place.
It is quite common to notice words like ‘upstream’ and ‘downstream’ in many business strategy models that outline value-chain fundamentals. Incidentally, or not so, the same undercurrents are now being felt in the world of software too.
