VK Testers is a VKontakte beta testing program available as a service on the VK Cloud platform for all developers. It allows you to find errors that were not identified in the previous stages of testing, and speeds up the process of bringing the product to market.
Previously, only the VK team had access to the experience, tools and community formed during the existence of the program, but now any business can use the benefits of VK Testers.
VK Testers allows you to quickly test all user scenarios in real conditions on different equipment and get feedback from a community of 30,000 testers. The program helps to improve product performance and user experience, fix bugs and refine the interface.
The new cloud service expands the capabilities of the full-time quality engineering department, reduces the burden on company employees and reduces testing costs. There is no need to purchase and maintain a fleet of devices to test the performance of a new product.
“All the best practices that we offer to the market are first tested by VK on our own products. VK Testers is no exception. We developed a program to solve the internal problems of our services — prompt testing of new products in real conditions and collecting feedback, — says Dmitry Lazarenko, VK Cloud Product Director. “Now the capabilities of the program have become available to all users of the VK Cloud platform.”
How VK Testers works:
The VK Testers client completes the task for testers and gives access to the beta version of the product. Community members complete them and provide feedback. If necessary, you can increase the coverage of the number of testers and tested scenarios, scale the load, and change the parameters of operating systems and devices.
As a result, the customer receives a report on the convenience of products, defects found, vulnerabilities and errors in UX design. The service ensures confidentiality and data security: the code is securely protected, and only the developer who initiated the testing sees the result.
VK Testers is a program that brings together a huge community of beginners, experienced and advanced testers who are passionate about testing, professional growth in this area and who want to make VK better. You can join VK Testers by following the link.
