Acquia Lift is a great tool built by an amazing team. It has been well received and brings some powerful features to Drupal. One of those unique features is that its completely integrated with Drupal which opens the door for editors to use it in the same workflow they are used to. This added power creates a new unique challenge: to target, test and personalize a web experience for each visitor.

How to Own an Action Plan for Testing Strategy

In today’s marketing world, buzzwords like automation, user experience and custom content fill the pages of every blog post for customer experience and lead generation. It’s no wonder, given the wealth of data available on every prospective customer. With digital footprints growing exponentially, marketers and website managers have the ability to develop unique experiences for every visitor, but they often get a little tongue-tied when it comes to explaining how content development and targeting decisions are made.

Website Testing: What you need to know about A/B Testing

The concept of A/B testing is nothing new. It has been used in marketing, as well as many other industries to ensure that the right product or process is put in place. Once you start looking into A/B testing, you may begin to get excited about the fact that you can test just about any marketing process you put in place.

High Quality PHP

The historical perception of PHP in the software development community has not been the best. Some think it is a language for non-programmers and tinkerers, generally resulting in software of questionable quality.

How Acquia Tests Software (via uTest)

I started at Acquia 6 months ago, having previously worked for larger, process-heavy corporations that sold packaged proprietary, software with long release cycles. Our QA teams consisted of over 50 people (sometimes a lot more), and were always the long pole in the process, whether it was Agile or Waterfall.

Not so at Acquia.

At Acquia, I manage a lean QA team of 4 people (we have another team that tests usability), and we support 5 products. We work in an Agile environment, release every 3 weeks, and meet our quality goals for each sprint.
