Our engagement

DeviQA got involved in a project to address outdated automated tests for the backend and set up a new approach to testing the frontend.

First of all, using best test automation practices, we optimized the existing backend tests to ensure their reliability.

At the same time, we started creating automated tests for the frontend and set up a robust CI/CD pipeline using Jenkins and Docker containers. As all modifications were implemented and the platform moved to a new setup, our main goal was to create a bunch of new automated tests that would work really well ensuring quick test execution and early bug detection.

All our hard work has paid off. We observed a huge 95% drop in bugs emerging after updates to the main system and a threefold acceleration in testing and releasing new software versions.

After a short break, we got back in order to make our testing process even better. We aligned old autotests with a big Python update, increased test coverage, and set up a special "smoke suite" to check app operation every day.

Web Automation Testing

Our team created a bunch of new automated tests - more than 3,800 test scripts in total. We also smoothly integrated automated frontend tests into CI/CD pipelines. Our QA engineers additionally streamlined the testing process by implementing a cool multi-threading method, which made autotests faster and more stable.

When it comes to regression testing (checking if everything still works after changes), our tests cover about 95% of the software. It's like making sure everything keeps working the way it should when new updates are introduced.

API Testing

The DeviQA team worked hard to optimize the QA process. It improved the accuracy and reliability of existing tests and created 2,800 new tests just for checking APIs.

We did it because API tests are faster than UI tests. This made our testing process much quicker, especially during regression testing. Thus, it enabled us to complete regression tests 70% faster than before. Faster testing was a big win for our development process and showed the efficiency of our smart testing strategy.

Also, by polishing our backend tests and adding lots of API tests, we significantly increased test coverage.

Dedicated QA Team

Three senior automation QA engineers experienced in web and API test automation established an efficient testing process. They updated all existing tests and added over 2,800 new automated tests, which let them decrease the number of regression bugs by 95%.
