We all know the buzz around microservices, IoT, machine learning and cloud computing as of late. Organizations that wish to take on the role of trailblazers get a competitive edge by being amongst the first to adopt the new techs. Qxf2 has been trying its best to keep up with the ever evolving world of tech and 2021 has been an interesting year for us.
Projects that we did
In 2021, we continued to work on becoming more technical. We want to give all our testers a safe opportunity to work with new technologies. This familiarity helps them feel more confident when they encounter similar tech stacks at clients. So, we made several practice testing by building, using and troubleshooting several internal tools.
With the growing hype around microservices, businesses and organizations rapidly shifting from traditional monolithic to microservices architectures, we wanted to give it a shot too. We worked on a variety of microservices-related internal projects last year, making use of techs like AWS Lambda, CloudWatch, AWS SNS and more. These projects give our testers and new hires safe-to-fail opportunities to practice testing them and encounter several practical problems before they encounter them at clients.
As you read through the list, think about how you would go about testing these applications. These apps are complex enough to present testing challenges while simple enough to grasp intuitively.
We are yet to solve the problem of writing API level automated tests for applications that use Single Sign On. But we are working on it.
More and more organizations are recognizing and utilizing the benefits of IoT today than ever before. Machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Remote monitoring systems aren’t things of future, they’re already here, and showing no signs of slowing down.
With the rapid expansion of IoT, firms that get on board early will have a leg up on the competition. So, we at Qxf2 decided to join the trend and try our hand at a few IOT Projects:
Apart from this we have also worked on various other projects with unique tech stacks like Dask, Matplotlib, ReportPortal, ReactJS, Neo4j and many more.
Most used techs at Qxf2
We have a Qxf2 Survey app that our staff fill out once a week. It keeps track of what technology employees worked on over the week as well as how much help they gave and received from coworkers. With the data collected from the Qxf2 survey application we have come up with a graph of the most used techs in 2021 at Qxf2. The following is a Word cloud visualization of the most used techs at Qxf2 in 2021
Change is inevitable. Technology is constantly evolving and improving for the better. We at Qxf2 make every effort to stay relevant with the changing technology developments. We intend to make 2022 an even better year of learning and work.
I am a QA Engineer. I completed my engineering in computer science and joined Qxf2 as an intern QA. During my internship, I got a thorough insight into software testing methodologies and practices. I later joined Qxf2 as a full-time employee after my internship period. I love automation testing and seek to learn more with new experiences and challenges. My hobbies are reading books, listening to music, playing chess and soccer.
