The uTest Army: a crowdsourcing model for web & mobile application testing

One of the tenets of the open source software movement was that armies of coders and testers would fall-in and self organize driven purely by intrinsic rewards. This was driven by the notion that they could not only build it better, but that closed and restrictive practices were not in everyone’s best interest! So, it would seem that if you could harness the intrinsic motivations of this special breed of individual and further reward their performance, you might just have an unbeatable business model…..maybe uTest has discovered that model?


I was keen to find out what made uTest’s model different and, from the looks of its top name client list, what was underpinning its obvious success. I recently interviewed Matt Johnston, uTest’s Chief Marketing Officer, who shed some light on uTest’s interesting business model.

Open Source Software’s Pricey Bugs [Infographic]

Open source coding accounts for a significant portion of the United States’ $180 billion software industry: 90% of companies rely on third-party code for at least a portion (and sometimes the entirety) of their software projects. Approximately a third of the total revenue spent on the industry, $60 billion yearly, goes towards remedying defective software; in effect, bug squashing.

SourceNinja
shared an infographic with us that details the total cost — in time, money, and resources — of bugs in open source code. Among other facts, like the impact of software defects on happiness and the frequency of security tests, the infographic reveals where troublesome bugs hide and how much they cost to repair. Coders, take note: squash those bugs before release and everyone will be better off.
