How often does our QA team test Cleardocs site?

Thomas Lam, IT Manager

a) Every 6 months;
b) Every month;
c) Every week;
d) Every day;

The answer is “None of the above”. Cleardocs site’s functionalities are being tested every 2 hours, 7 days a week!

And how many tests do we conduct every 2 hour?

a) 20 tests;
b) 50 tests;
c) 100 tests;
d) 500 tests;

If your guess is “d)” then you’re getting close. There are well over 500 tests in our test suite. Majority of these tests are unit tests and UI tests, as well as some integration tests.

Don’t spend time on just doing testings...

You will be surprised that our QA team members spend most of their time creating new tests and capturing test results. The actual testings were done automatically and repeatedly by a machine (a.k.a. continuous integration server).

Future directions

With these tests in place, our software engineers are now more confident that existing site are still working correctly when introducing new functionalities. In the next 6-9 months, our QA team will work on continuous reporting of source code quality and compliance. So stay tuned for next update in few months time!
