A short introduction to Device Cloud

Did you know that Testbirds offers more than just crowdtesting as a service? Next to BirdFlight, which functions as a beta-app distribution platform, we’re also proud to offer TestChameleon, the latest addition to our testing family. But what is TestChameleon and what exactly can you do with it?There are many ways to test the quality of software. Testbirds’ core business was built on the principle of crowdtesting. This means that we provide companies and organisations that want to test their app or website with specified end-user testers. With a database of over 65.000 testers, we deliver almost every imaginable tester profile out there. Sometimes, however, there’s a different testing need that a client has. The need for automated testing was the reason why, over the past year, we have developed TestChameleon.

Testing with virtual machines

TestChameleon is a service that enables software testing with virtual machines (VM). Through the service, our clients are able to extensively test their applications on a wide range of operating systems, without the need of acquiring these for in-house testing. It facilitates them to run manual and automated tests of their software to analyse for compatibility and inconsistencies. So, how does this work? Basically, TestChameleon is a platform in which virtual machines are constructed on demand. Accordingly, clients can then run manual tests on these virtual machines, simply by clicking or following a use case scenario. In addition, automated tests can also be executed, by means of Selenium- or Sikuli-scripts.TeCh (abbreviated) has some cool features. First of all, a virtual machine is set up in just about minute. Want to have Windows 7 running with Service Pack 1 and Firefox 35.0.1? Or do you need to test a specific version of Chrome or Opera on Linux? With TeCh, it’s just a matter of selecting the desired software combinations and you’re good to go.

Check your website with automated test scripts

Once your machine is up and running, you can go ahead and install your (beta) software or check your website and test how it functions. This can be done either manually, so by clicking around, or automatically, by means of automated test scripts. These are just the quick basics of TestChameleon. Want to know more about this service?
