Building the automation testing environment

Our Xoomworks Technology Quality Assurance Tester has worked on-site at the VU.CITY offices in London, UK, in between January-June 2018 to set up the automation testing environment from scratch. Using test-driven software development processes (TDD) that rely on the repetition of a very short development cycle, requirements were turned into specific test cases and the software was improved to pass the new tests, only. The software uses .Net languages, so aside from manual testing unity tests were created using NUnit. Testing and reporting on isolated changes in a larger code base in real time was of key importance. Jenkins technologies were used as a CI tool to allow continuous integration, build automation, and to facilitate the technical aspects of continuous delivery.

The results

Although still in start-up phase, VU.CITY is already being used by local government, public bodies, architects, land owners, developers and property agents across the UK and abroad.
