As I have mentioned, I want to share software tips - especially software testing tips.
Here are some - I hope to add to this list over time.
Need to be more agile in your development? Need Continuous Integration? I have written a tutorial on Nunit/Jenkins.
I found this useful about how to view .pages files on a PC/Windows machine. Basically, rename them as a zip and open preview.
If you need Jenkins to run from the DOS prompt (say SYSTEM user doesn't have the permissions needed for your build).
.NET 4.0/4.5 inconsistencies - an example of why we need to test on different platforms. http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/wpf/thread/c05a8c02-de67-47a9-b4ed-fd8b622a7e4a
Some more on this subject - need to upgrade to .NET4.5 to get some WPF bugs fixed? https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/732930/wpf-unable-to-add-items-to-an-empty-grouped-and-sorted-collectionview
Actually, this sort of thing, having to regression test on many platforms/browsers, is a very good argument for test automation - and that's exactly what Doogle Ltd is expert at - automated software testing experts.
Useful tool...free conversion from pdf to word: http://www.pdftoword.com
Another useful thing! I needed an electronic signature - I used fountain pen free for the iPad. https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/fountain-pen-free/id324693444?mt=8
Need to get your head around Business Driven Development (BDD)? I found this useful. http://specflow.org/getdoc/7a17d618-cb24-40e4-904b-b335c34c98d8/screencast.aspx
Quick tip. Copy-paste the content from your web site and spell/grammar check in your word-processor of choice.
Need to share source code with others in an SVN repository? I like unfuddle: unfuddle.com/
Need to convert between file types for say an inline email? Try zamzar.com
Tip of the week: take screen shots and videos of applications under test and share with Jing: http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html
Top tip: Need to check your web site is up? I use this: http://www.uptimerobot.com/default.asp
I used to use XPather a plugin for firefox (but it no longer supports the latest versions of firefox). So I have been using Firebug - I find this excellent to find Xpaths to use in my Selenium scripts.
Testing Tip: If you need to test an iPad, iPhone or iPod app, install the .ipa with i-Funbox
