Hey testers,

Welcome to my first Monthly Software Testing Report – July 2015.

The idea behind this report is to provide a second chance for testers to review some highlights in software testing in the last month. The report also helps busy testers be up-to-date and synchronized with the software testing community without having to follow up daily.

Alright, here we go…


Last July, there are several amazing magazines published for software testing community. Let’s check out some of them

Tea-time with Testers Magazine:

LogiGear Magazine:

LogiGear Magazine in June 2015 is all about API testing. Below is what Michael Hackett said in Letter From Editor:

“Now APIs are a key part of product development, from enterprise to mobile to wearable Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Many new applications are just a combination of APIs, whether you call them “traditional” APIs, web APIs, web services or even Social APIs.”
