This book is aimed at everyone preparing for the ISTQB® Certified Tester ¿ Foundation Level exam based on the Foundation Level syllabus (version 4.0) published in 2023. It provides candidates with reliable knowledge based on this document and thus distinguishes itself from all the information about ISTQB® syllabi and exams on the Internet, which is often of rather poor quality and may even contain serious errors. The book expands and details many issues that are described in the new 2023 version of the syllabus in a perfunctory or general way only. According to the ISTQB® guidelines for syllabus-based training, an exercise must be provided for each learning objective at the K3 level, and a practical example must be provided for each objective at the K2 or K3 level. In order to satisfy these requirements, the authors prepared numerous exercises and examples for all learning objectives at these levels. In addition, for each learning objective, one or more sample exam questions are presented which are similar to those that the candidate will see in the exam. This makes the book an excellent aid for studying and preparing for the exam and verifying acquired knowledge.

This handbook contains information and guidance that supports all of the topics of the 2016 version of the CSQE Body of Knowledge (BoK) upon which ASQ's Certified Software Quality Engineer/(CSQE) exam is based. Armed with the knowledge presented in this handbook to complement the required years of actual work experience, qualified software quality practitioners may feel confident they have taken appropriate steps in preparation for the ASQ CSQE exam.However, the goals for this handbook go well beyond it being a CSQE exam preparation guide. Its author designed this handbook not only to help the software quality engineers, but as a resource for software development practitioners, project managers, organizational managers, other quality practitioners, and other professionals who need to understand the aspects of software quality that impact their work. It can also be used to benchmark their (or their organization's) understanding and application of software quality principles and practices against what is considered a cross-industry good practice baseline. After all, taking stock of strengths and weaknesses, software engineers can develop proactive strategies to leverage software quality as a competitive advantage.New software quality engineers can use this handbook to gain an understanding of their chosen profession. Experienced software quality engineers can use this handbook as a reference source when performing their daily work. It is also hoped that trainers and educators will use this handbook to help propagate software quality engineering knowledge to future software practitioners and managers. Finally, this handbook strives to establish a common vocabulary that software quality engineers, and others in their organizations can use to communicate about software and quality. Thus increasing the professionalism of the industry and eliminating the wastes that can result from ambiguity and misunderstandings.
Investing in engineering documentation (Docs) means investing in community user experience. This book teaches readers how mastering the docs-as-code ecosystem empowers communities to understand better their favorite products and Open-Source (OSS) technologies better.Author Alejandra Quetzalli believes that ¿docs-as-ecosystem¿ represents a more comprehensive and collaborative approach to documentation development than ¿docsas- code¿ because it recognizes that documentation is more than just code. Docs involve technical writing, design, community feedback, community management, accessibility, SEO, UX, and today¿ even Artificial Intelligence tools! The word ecosystem promotes a paradigm where we treat documentation as a complex and dynamic system that must be managed and nurtured.In this book, yoüll acquire practical skills such as creating public style guides, incorporating responsive and accessible design, designing user flows and information architecture, retrieving user feedback, and setting up Docs analytics. Yoüll learn to identify the difference in work processes between maintaining Docs for a product versus an OSS technology. Yoüll discover the secrets to managing technical writers and OSS contributions, all while building a thriving Docs community. To end on a futuristic note, yoüll discover why technical writers who harness Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools (i.e., ChatGPT) need not fear a robot uprising anytime soon. What You'll LearnExamine accessibility and the user experienceUnderstand Information architecture Review docs-as-ecosystem processes Manage technical writersOversee OSS Docs contributions Retrieve and integrate user feedback Build Docs and Education communities Who This Book is ForDevelopers of all levels, VPs of Product/Engineering, Product Managers, and Designers,
In an article for Wired Magazine in 2006, Jeff Howe defined crowdsourcing as an idea for outsourcing a task that is traditionally performed by a single employee to a large group of people in the form of an open call. Since then, by modifying crowdsourcing into different forms, some of the most successful new companies on the market have used this idea to make people's lives easier and better. On the other hand, software testing has long been recognized as a time-consuming and expensive activity. Mobile application testing is especially difficult, largely due to compatibility issues: a mobile application must work on devices with different operating systems (e.g. iOS, Android), manufacturers (e.g. Huawei, Samsung) and keypad types (e.g. virtual keypad, hard keypad). One cannot be 100% sure that, just because a tested application works well on one device, it will run smoothly on all others.Crowdsourced testing is an emerging paradigm that can improve the cost-effectiveness of software testing and accelerate the process, especially for mobile applications. It entrusts testing tasks to online crowdworkers whose diverse testing devices/contexts, experience, and skill sets can significantly contribute to more reliable, cost-effective and efficient testing results. It has already been adopted by many software organizations, including Google, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft. This book provides an intelligent overview of crowdsourced testing research and practice. It employs machine learning, data mining, and deep learning techniques to process the data generated during the crowdsourced testing process, to facilitate the management of crowdsourced testing, and to improve the quality of crowdsourced testing.
Overhaul your debugging techniques and master the theory and tools needed to debug and troubleshoot cloud applications in production environments. This book teaches debugging skills that universities often avoid, but that typically consume as much as 60% of our time as developers. The book covers the use of debugger features such as tracepoints, object marking, watch renderers, and more. Author Shai Almog presents a scientific approach to debugging that is grounded in theory while being practical enough to help you to chase stubborn bugs through the maze of a Kubernetes deployment.Practical Debugging at Scale assumes a polyglot environment as is common for most enterprises, but focuses on JVM environments. Most of the tooling and techniques described are applicable to Python, Node, and other platforms, as well as to Java and other JVM languages.

The rotary-wing platform, lagging behind fixed-wing due to comparatively greater technological challenges, provided remarkably alluring options to the commander on the battlefield, ever thirsting for a high vantage point, speed of maneuvering and the flexibility of quick redeployment. Vietnam, Korea and Iraq as also several other military conflicts, helped the helicopter to mature from casualty evacuation to increasingly more offensive tasks such as attack, anti-tank, suppression of enemy air defenses, reconnaissance and observation, airlift of troops, cargo resupply and fire fighting.
