We have just released a new whitepaper about how to set up a successful test automation project based on our experience of working with hundreds of companies to successfully deploy test automation

Test automation can deliver huge benefits in terms of time-to-market, quality, productivity, and auditability to almost any team creating or deploying software. For example, TestPlant has worked with a leading global news publisher to reduce their app update cycle from three weeks to two days, a major UK bank to reduce post-release defects by 65%, and one of the world’s top five retailers to double the number of apps they are delivering without increasing the size of their test team. These stories are not uncommon – test automation really has delivered amazing benefits to lots of companies.

What a wonderful July. On 14 July Antony Edwards, our CTO, and I make our way to Buckingham Palace with all the other 2016 award winners. This our third time! No less a thrill - and a particularity big deserved thrill for Antony who has led TestPlant's innovation drive and the commercial success recognising all of the new products we have introduced over recent years. One has to be discreet about visits to the palace, but HRM The Queen did grace us and so too her consort HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and The Princess Royal, Princess Anne.

TestPlant released eggPlant v16.1 this month, and I’m writing to talk to you about my favorite of the marquee features: support for Gherkin, the language of the Cucumber BDD framework. (Cue the vegetable puns!) Throughout our internal beta and in our v16.1 webinars, I’ve heard some great questions about Gherkin and our implementation of it that I’d like to share here. (I will also unabashedly share my preoccupation with Pokémon Go.)

In this webinar, we will run through the basics of performance testing. For a lot of folks just introducing test automation into their company (or even those who are already doing functional test automation), performance and load testing can be daunting.

To help alleviate the stress and clarify some first steps, we decided to run this webinar to help break down the basics for getting started. Steps for getting started include planning and preparation, test architecture, constraints, test creation/ recording, execution, and results.
