How to Take Advantage of DevOps in Mobile Apps Testing

Large Number of Mobile Devices Flooding of smart phones and other hand held devices is overwhelming for Apps Development companies. Portability on all such devices is a tough task. Quality teams fails to guarantee functioning of an app on on any given device. OS Platforms Most difficult part of mobile apps testing is large number of OS platforms in market today. Leaving iOS aside, Android has large number of variations on different devices. Such diverse variety makes it difficult to achieve the goal of consistent user experience across platforms. Mobile Apps Types Testing a native app is different than testing a web app which is entirely different for a hybrid app. Implementation of each type makes it unique to test and thee is hardly any overlap.

Top 4 mobile app developer security #fails

Most of the security problems plaguing mobile apps boil down to developers’ lack of knowledge about the security impact of certain development decisions. The cure for the disease is to instill a culture of security into the programmers writing the code. Developers that fail to encrypt, blindly trust third-party libraries, lack an attacker mentality and do not build security into there development process will be the most likely to find their software under attack.

Interview Questions Every Mobile App Developer Should Know

All major platforms update their software several times a year, and sometimes these updates wreak havoc with the inner workings of many apps. Your employer is likely to be interested in how you are prepared to deal with this problem. In addition to that, a living app should constantly be developing and evolving even without pressure – once it stops, it is as good as dead. Thus, you should have a ready-made plan on post-release support and development. Continue reading this post at DZone

How “citizen developers” are driving the next wave of rapid app development initiatives

Vijay Pullur, founder and CEO of RAD tool developer WaveMaker, agreed that it’s still an early adopter trend. WaveMaker’s tools are mostly used by developers to speed up their simple application development initiatives, but Pullur said he has seen enterprise business users make use of RAD tools to create temporary applications.

For instance, using a RAD tool, accompanying REST APIs and standard templates, business users are getting access to data using what Pullar called “slice and dice analytics.” It’s not so much about creating applications today as it is about creating dashboards that enable business users to query existing corporate databases, he said.

A data platform for data scientists, DevOps, and developers

We want to meet the needs of three distinct users within the TAP ecosystem. The operator (the DevOps role), the data scientist, and the developer. DevOps is the first line because TAP does need to be installed and maintained for the organization. Once it’s set up, its tools and services are available for respective data scientists and developers. DevOps still, in most cases, owns the environment and will be the group that makes that support decision. Continue reading this article at Oreilly

Learn what is DevOps and How it is Used in Development

Another DevOps practice is the use of micro service architecture. A micro service architecture enables organizations to deliver flexible applications and quick innovations. A micro service architecture emphasizes splitting a large and complex system into separate projects. An application is divided into multiple components with each component having its function. Dividing a large system has the advantages of reducing the effort required for successful updates and the organization moves quickly because each component has a team working on it.

Need Help Delivering Microservices And Container-Based Apps?

Yesterday’s workflow-based deployment tools were designed to deal with complex deployments of large, individual applications. With microservices we need new tooling that can harness a multitude of much smaller deployments, while tracking and managing their dependencies. It needs to be able to conduct proceedings, to bring everything together in time to deliver the app, but it can’t be too rigid. We want to be able to deploy different “bundles” of services easily, without having to ask an administrator to reconfigure our deployment tool. Continue reading this article at XebiaLabs

How to Find an App Developer for Your Project

5 Things to Know Before You Have a Developer Build Your App

Let’s face it, you don’t have unlimited funds to play with (see section one above). You don’t need to support every platform–do you really think you need an iOS app, an Android app, a Windows Phone app and an iPad app from the beginning? Instead, start testing your idea on one platform to build a proof of concept. If there’s a platform that is particularly suited to showing off the capabilities of your idea, focus on that one and, if appropriate, add more platforms later.

Prerequisite Skills for an App Developer

Companies are now looking for someone who is well-equipped to deal with every layer of the development stack and has the ability to extract insights from massive data sets. Organizations have understood that there are alternative ways of building mobile solutions, and that the hybrid, cross-platform approach is a mainstream now. Two of the most vital concerns regarding mobile initiatives today are security and backend integrations. The amalgamation of Platform as a Service (PaaS) and cloud has changed the way we look at app development and organizations are looking for new and different ways to increase speed and productivity. Iteration is just the right way to go about it. There’s no need to concentrate all the focus and energy on building the ‘mother’ of all solutions. You need to get the product out in the market and decide accordingly as to what works in its favor and what doesn’t, and then make the required changes. It goes hand-in-hand with DevOps and we are seeing mobile app development as one of the drivers of PaaS adoption. Continue reading this article at BestDevOps
