We had to test a news portal and make sure it’s capable of sustaining heavy and peak loads and ensure convenience for both visitors and authors of the entries. We needed to assure high performance of several data storages including MongoDB and MySQL for stable comment section operation.
Test Plan included Manual and Automated functional testing based on Selenium, Regression, Black-box testing, and generation of all needed reports and testing documentation.
Types of testing performed:
HuffPost successfully operates as one of the most popular portals in the USA and has been featured on the main page of Yahoo several times. The site performs impeccably with the average load of 200+k visitors per hour. The iOS client for The HuffPost news system works perfectly as well.
