Can Government IT Projects Be Done Using Agile?


The CNN moments for the government projects are not uncommon. In the recent years, Obamacare seems to have made it to the list. Even though it is easier to blame the software for the glitch, the issues related to implementing software in government departments are much wider.

To download them we use the “” function.

It is very simple, we just need to add the URL and the file path to it.

Typical journey of a Software Tester

Just consider the job title “Software Tester” and try to think about the job responsibilities. First thing which occurs in mind is to just “Test Software”. But is this is it? Is there is nothing more which a software tester does? Is only testing a software is enough by a tester to complete a project successfully. There are also numbers of other questions which can be pointed and be asked. A misconception which people have in their mind about software testers are that they are just some bunch…

Quick ruby script to find log errors

This is something I'm still working on in my own time for my automation setup.

If an error occurs on the server it can be quickly flagged and fed into a report.

The following ruby script will read an external text file line by line.

If it finds a line of text containing the string "error" it will feed it into an array, then remove all of the duplicate errors.

I've done some further editing to strip out the time, date and session information for my log…

Will pentesting scope change soon?

I have an impression that penetration testing is mostly associated with things like port scanning, missing security patch seeking, breaking weak encryption and optionally social engineering. Web Application Penetration Testing is different, isn’t it? Having a lot of experienced, competent and certified pentesters/hackers/IS security professionals with little to no experience with web application security testing, what is going to happen in the industry moving to cloud and adding web access…
