I grew up reading Tinkle and I know the whole generation I grew up did the same or had something similar. Here we are - starting a new generation of people who will grow up reading fun cartoons and learning from it. Welcome to the Bugasura cartoon series! The Intro of Bugasura!
At AppAchhi - we built a bot that tests apps. We are feeding it (programming) with as much intelligence as we can to make the bot smarter. The bot behaves, in most cases, the way we designed it to be. After our bot got to a stability point - we started to lay the foundation for adding the "Learnability" / Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning layer to the bot. Through this post - I wanted to share our journey and my [...]
Many good QA might not know to code. So they end up staying away from anything that looks like code and most importantly and sadly, they stay out of technology and only focus on functional testing. This leads to a gap for a tester in terms of learning technical things because even if they are a functional tester - they need to know technical stuff. I have tried to come up with a syllabus for mobile app testers to become [...]
As of today (16th October 2017) we serve about 1250+ app owners, developers and QA. We have had the pleasure to interact with at least 300+ app development companies. When we say interact - we have actively engaged them - asking them for their testing pain points, app quality pain points, their uninstall rates due to app quality, crashes, and performance issues. Also having tested the app they signed up we also discover the quality of their app. A key [...]
I call myself an exploratory tester. If you give me an app to test I would ask questions to assess the context - and then if I really need to go ahead and test it - I would understand my mission - the time - the stakeholders to provide information - the kind of information that needs to be given - the impact of the information - the value people expect ...after all this - I begin running tests. All [...]
Hurrah! We got featured in Yourstory again. Thanks to Alok Soni for a detailed work on this. Journalism at its best. He analyzed our product by asking app developers to comment on its value. My co-founder Avinash Nishant isn't happy about it though. He thinks the positives were less highlighted. On the contrary, I think it is always good to get unbiased views. Yes the positives could have been highlighted but that will become merely a promotion of AppAchhi [...]
I am writing this post to those who are fundoo. They are elite. They are either VP Engineering or QA Head who mostly think QA means writing test code. Mostly. Not completely. I am no coding expert to teach people how to write robust code - be it product code or test code. That disqualifies me from advising them how to do their job. I have found them to be hard to convince people unless you talk code. I can't convince [...]
Pricing is one of the hardest things in every founder's journey. A particular price attracts one kind of customers and shoos away others. Why are we complicating it? We may not know the unit to price. We go wrong with the unit - we price the wrong thing. We think we know our costs. As costs shoot up - our pricing can look weak to ourselves. We want to make and X profits per sale. This conflicts with what customers [...]
I can relate everything in entrepreneurship to a woman. I think successful mentepreneurs turn themselves to how a woman would think and behave. Right now - I am having a situation. I have heard woman complaining that they are not getting their periods on time. I am having a similar problem. I am not getting my "flow" of thoughts. I am not getting my flow on time. I know I need to finish some tasks by an x time. I [...]
We precisely did it that way. As a CEO, I know the road map and I know the release schedules and I know what is coming up in January. It looks fantastic. For now - take a look at what our customer said. If you have not tried App Achhi you should.
