A few great CAPTCHA alternatives from UX design company Digital Telepathy. Check out the article right here. If you would like to implement no.9 from the list, which is reCAPTCHA, check out our latest DMXzone reCAPTCHA 2.
This article walks through a sample use case for test automation and provides a downloadable example to get you started. Also, we’ll focus on different aspects of mobile test automation and explain how this relatively new yet popular topic can help mobile app and game developers to build better, more robust products for consumers. With the advanced example later in the article, we’ll show how image recognition can be used to test mobile games; specifically, we’ll run Appium’s test automation framework against Supercell’s Clash of Clan game to illustrate how image recognition can be built into the test-automation process.
One of the most popular new features introduced in iOS 8 is the ability to create several types of extensions. In this tutorial, I will guide you through the process of creating a custom widget for the Today section of the notification center. But first, let's briefly review some topics about extensions and understand the important concepts that underly widgets.
In March 2014, the Baymard Institute, a web research company based in the UK, reported that 67.91% of online shopping carts are abandoned. An abandonment means that a customer has visited a website, browsed around, added one or more products to their cart and then left without completing their purchase. A month later in April 2014, Econsultancy stated that global retailers are losing $3 trillion (USD) in sales every year from abandoned carts.
No one wants to ship buggy software. Ensuring that you release a mobile application of the highest quality requires much more than a human-driven manual quality assurance process. New devices and operating systems are released to the public each year. This means that there is an ever expanding combination of screen sizes and operating system versions on which you must test your mobile application. Not only would it be extremely time consuming, but attempting to test your iOS application by manual testing neglects an entire piece of the modern software engineering process, automated quality assurance testing.
In this tutorial, we will give you nine practical techniques for writing elegant and readable code,by wisely choosing names for variables, functions, and methods, being consistent when writing code, and breaking complex problems into manageable chunks. We won't be talking about specific architectures, languages, or platforms. The focus lies on writing better code.
If you don’t already know, GitHub is an incredibly effective way to collaborate on development projects. Providing a place for anyone with an internet connection to have an avenue where they can share code with the world for free (not to mention the robust supporting tools for source inspection and easy viewing of commit histories). GitHub has been adopted by many large open-source projects as their primary home for collaboration and contribution.
Back in January, Ray Bango walked you through the features of Internet Explorer 10's F12 Developer Tools. Microsoft's recent release of Windows 8.1 Preview brings with it, not only an update to Internet Explorer (now at v11) but also a welcome refresh to the F12 Developer Tools. The latter is especially important since developers are dependent on them to troubleshoot site-related issues from within IE. Till now the tools have solved most debugging use-cases but it's clear that as sites become more complex, developers need richer tools to work with.
In his previous article, Pavan Podila covered some of HTTP’s basics, such as the URL scheme, status codes and request/response headers. With that as our foundation, we will look at the finer aspects of HTTP, like connection handling, authentication and HTTP caching. These topics are fairly extensive, but we’ll cover the most important bits.
HTTP stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol. It’s a stateless,
application-layer protocol for communicating between distributed
systems, and is the foundation of the modern web. As a web developer, we
all must have a strong understanding of this protocol. Let’s
review this powerful protocol through the lens of a web developer.
