How to improve communication and collaboration between developers and designers

How to improve communication and collaboration between developers and designers

Communication is important. Hence, we are developing DebugMe. In a relationship, in traffic, at work. The more closely you deal with someone, the more important it becomes. And the more difficult it is. Stress, important and hurried decisions, snotty clients and less than understanding bosses don’t help, and if you don’t have at least one of those, I envy you for your job.

As far as web development and design goes, if you work in the field, you are probably well familiar with the communication issues that can arise. Often with no malicious intent, one or two misunderstandings can have huge ramifications a little down the road. Now, just complaining about communicative difficulties won’t improve anything, it’ll only make it worse by causing ill will on both sides.

So, here’s some steps to improve the communication and collaboration between developers and designers.

Different elements of UAT testing and how to get them right

Different elements of UAT testing and how to get them right

Whether you are a backend developer or a frontend one – you will know the pains of testing, user acceptance testing in particular. On one hand, it means that the bulk of the work is done – a nearly finished product is ready to be presented. On the other hand, that sometimes means that the worst is yet to come. Errors that are found during UAT testing can be pesky to get rid of if they managed to sneak through previous stages of testing.

What is user acceptance testing? Well, it doesn’t matter if the project in question is, for example, a booking app, or a browser-based game, the steps are very much the same. To take a step back, the idea of UAT testing is to simulate and test as many ‘real’ user scenarios as is possible given the time, staff and resources available for testing. As it is the last stage of testing, it is a very crucial one, since anything that slips past this stage will be included in the final product. This includes bugs as well as problems with usability.

Web Application Testing: A Quick-Glance 7-Step Guide

Web Application Testing: A Quick-Glance 7-Step Guide

Before delving into the different types of web application testing, it’s important to understand what web application testing is and why it is a vital procedure for any web application that is brought to market.

What is Web Application Testing?

Web application testing is ensuring a web application is thoroughly checked for potential bugs before it is moved into a production environment or made live. Just take a look at the Digital XRaid guys picture below. Aspects taken into account during this procedure include web application security, the web application’s accessibility and usability for an entire range of potential users, how it handles traffic, and its functionality. Without ensuring these things before pushing a web application to production, it can obviously make the company/brand look bad having a buggy, semi-working web application which then makes the developers look at least semi-professional to the company and other potential customers who are then less likely to hire the said developers.
