Amit Mathur, Tango
Tango is a free mobile messaging service with 200+ million registered members available on iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets. Tango’s large user base, broad platform support, frequent releases, and organizational design pose challenges to achieving quality. In this paper I discuss how we are addressing these challenges from our organizational and testing culture, as well as how we utilize test and deployment automation.
We have a culture at Tango of pushing the limits of what is possible and the same applies to our testing mindset. We are constantly adopting tools and techniques that hit at the core of problems with minimum bureaucracy so that we can continue on a release cadence of every 2 weeks.
This paper touches upon how we have approached testing as well as other ways in which we have attempted to address the challenge of shipping with high quality. Some efforts were more successful than others and I will share some lessons learned.
