News and PR

This category page contains blog posts, interviews, and press release that speak about recent news in the software testing world and news from spriteCloud as well. If we are attending a particular event, celebrating a milestone, or have important news about a new service offering, this is the place you will find it.

 

For example, we’ve recently launched a cybersecurity and penetration testing arm, which is doing quite well. The press release announcing the addition of penetration testing series can be found here.

 

You are here because you are interested in software testing, which means you might find like our interview series called ‘Testing Titans,’ where we talk with knowledgeable or influential software testing and quality assurance practitioners. Read the first of the interview series with Bas Dijkstra, a test automation consultant and trainer.

 

In July of 2019, spriteCloud celebrated its 10-year anniversary. The accompanying blog post is a fun way to see spriteCloud’s growth from 2009 to 2019. It’s also great looking at pictures of spriteys, past and present.
