I’m looking for some good tools & resources about testing (manual and automation) in the gambling/gaming/fintech/blockchain/cryptocurrencies industries. Also, I’m looking for testing strategies, methodologies & approaches around these areas.
I’m a newbie on these topics, and I’d appreciate your help on this.
These are very different industries so it is hard to provide something that fits all of them. One thing they share when they revolve around moving money around is that they all are heavily regulated. One resource for that is typically the governing bodies for these regulations and they usually employ independent test labs that are used to certify the compliance to these regulations. Some of these test labs will share their list of tests they will do and that can be a good source.
I also found seldom concrete tips for the products I test as they are typically uncommon ones. Being individual B2B products and not the x’th web shop.
Instead I apply general lessons of testing at the product and carved out the details by myself.
Also ask the team and the responsible what risks they see and what they find important. Quality is a value to a person.
When they hired you as newbie on the field they should give you an introduction to the product and technical details.
Assuming that you are joining a team, who are building the apps, I would speak to the team and see what resources others are using.
Whatever the industry, I personally favour collaborative approaches to testing when I’m able to do so. You can learn more here:
It sounds like you could be working in regulated domains, so it’s likely your company will have some well defined processes and training to follow for key aspects of compliance. Pay attention to these.
If you want to get involved in Test Automation, and you don’t have a background in software development. You have two choices, either start with low/no code tools, or learn a language. If you want to go down the code route, you might benefit from classic software developer resources, such as Free Code Camp.
As for more domain specific stuff, it’s going to be about learning the local regulations in the areas of the world your company operates in. Europe has very different rules to the USA, for gambling and finance.
None directly, but as others have said, software is software. Depending on the languages, frameworks and technologies the software is built on, and how much testability has been thought about, depends how you can approach testing and automating it
I don’t know of any specialist test Frameworks for automation of those domains. You and your team will need first figure out how to test in your context, and then how tools and code can help.
If there is a more specific answer, I don’t have it in afraid.
It looks like @priti_testrig works for a testing services company. They are suggesting that you email them at the address they mention to continue the conversation. Of course, that’s up to you if you do that.
