Based on the positive feedback Gorilla Logic received following our last post (which focused on DevOps in the technical sphere), we wanted to highlight another tech role that is gaining popularity: Software Development Engineers in Test (SDET’s).

What is an SDET?

SDETs differ slightly from traditional testers as their skills-set and background is closer to that of a Software Developers’. SDET’s are committed to Test Driven Development, creating tests based on...

As a recruiter, I get the privilege seeing the cutting edge technical jobs the market has to offer; and sometimes, I have the honor of explaining those jobs and positions to the “masses.” As of late, “DevOps” has become a position of note...

Long, long ago, when Sun was still relevant and I still worked there as the head of Java consulting, we used to talk to customers a lot about “multi-channel” delivery of applications. We would extol the importance of separating presentation logic from back-end services, cause you’d be delivering your app to a variety of browsers, phones, and “next-generation devices “ (by which I guess we meant tablets, although we really didn’t know what we meant).

This was around the turn-of-the-millennium at which time you may recall...

We are excited (truly excited -- not just the obligatory press-announcement-kinda excited) about the release of our new CloudMonkey testing cloud for mobile apps. If you are developing (and testing) mobile apps, you should be excited too, because your life is about to get a whole lot easier. Whereas today you maintain a multitude of emulators and devices for hosting your tests, and you must laboriously set up your tests to run on each one, Gorilla Logic's new CloudMonkey testing cloud lets you run your tests simultaneously across...

Today marks the tenth anniversary of Gorilla Logic. It was ten years ago that we embarked on building the world's greatest declarative programming platform.And failed.But we didn't call ourselves Gorilla Logic for nothin', and having run smack into a wall, we proceeded to bust right through it.So as I gaze out the windows of our oh-so-hip offices in downtown Boulder Colorado, and think about the seventy-five gorillas we currently employ, the major customers who trust us to build the software on which they bet their businesses, the open source testing platform we've created that's taking...

We've been recognized again with another award. It's kinda getting old (not really). This time we're a Colorado Company to Watch. I believe we are being watched because we are a dynamic and rapidly growing firm. At least that's what the cops keep telling us.

This morning we pushed out the bits for MonkeyTalk Beta 3, the latest edition of our free and open source functional testing tool for iOS and Android. In addition to the proverbial "numerous bug fixes and stability improvements",  Beta 3 adds playback support for embedded webviews, ie, if you have a "hybrid" application containing native components as well as embedded html browser views, you can now script the interaction with the html seamlessly along with the native portions of the app.We have mapped html elements to MonkeyTalk logical component types, so there is no need to distinguish...
