How To Make WiFi Tethering in Windows 10 or Windows 7?

It happens, specially when you are doing some testing with mobile devices, that you need to connect to only internally available application. The issue is with devices that have only WiFi connection and cannot be directly connected to internal network (LAN). For those cases you can create a temporary HotSpot (a connection sharing) on your Windows machine that will allow you to connect your device through it to your internal network, to have the following set-up:

Lets create the set-up:
Click Windows logo at the bottom left hand corner, type cmd, right-click the Cmd.exe link and select “Run as Administrator”. If you don’t have this option you cannot proceed. Sorry. Talk to your System Admin and show them this article.

But if you can the following black window will open up:

Here Type the command below:

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=MyNetwork key=MyPass

You of-course welcome to replace “MyNetwork” with the name you’d like to use for your new wifi network, and “MyPass” with a password of your choice.

NOTE: If after executing the command you get a command description response instead of the one you see in the image above, you probably have an issue with you password - it is to short - make it longer and things will look better.

While you are still at the command line, type

netsh wlan start hostednetwork

Now click Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings.

In this window choose you regular LAN connection that you want to share. Right-click it and select Properties.

Click the Sharing tab, check “Allow other network users to connect…”, choose your virtual Wi-Fi adapter that will probably has a name of 'Wireless Network Connection 2'.

NOTE: The 'Wireless Network Connection' is probably your regular WiFi adapter and 'Wireless Network Connection 2' is the new virtual one that you have created in the commands before this is the one we want to share

Now on your Mobile device look for your “MyNetwork” WiFi network and use your “MyPass” as a password to connect.

Story Points estimation for Scrum with Fibonacci vs Shirt Sizes vs Linear - 7 minute guide

It is all began long time ago when Development Teams were constantly asked to provide estimate and they were having a hard time to properly face the task. Let's admit it, there are so many things that can change, happen, and simply go wrong during the development process that one can hardly expect a proper estimation of hours for each task. That why a relative estimation with Story Points came along. Story Points Estimation Its a different way to estimate the effort of the Scrum Development Team with-in Agile methodology, which means that instead of estimating hours of work the team estimates each effort relatively to other efforts in the project. Let's assume that a developer knows that specific 'Task 1' is much harder than another 'Task 2' it is hard for him/her to quantify that harder feeling in hours of additional work but it is possible to say that it much more work. This situation is being address by Story Points when each story point is

7 Most Popular Test Types in Software Testing

Today we are going to return back to basics of software testing and discuss the 7 most popular test types that are being used in every software testing effort. Those different test types cover all the levels of the software to make sure that the final result matching the expectations from every possible angle. Here is our list: Unit testing Smoke testing Regression testing Functional testing Integration testing User Acceptance Testing Performance Testing Now let’s have a deeper dive into each one of those by using a simple example of an imaginary system that was created in order to manage warehouse activity including shipments, inventory and goods receptions from suppliers. Unit Testing This type of testing is usually performed by the developers and is covering the very basic development component. In this test developers are testing the straight forward functionality of a functional piece of code to make sure that it is performing according to th

What is the velocity of an Agile scrum methodology?

Let's discuss some of the important measurements in Agile, and that is the Velocity of the Scrum team work. Based on Wikipedia definition Velocity is " ...the rate of change of its position with respect to a frame of reference and is a function of time...", which when transferred to the scrum world can be summarized as: The amount of work that the scrum team completed in a single measure of time - in a sprint. How we Calculate Velocity? Velocity is actually a very simple to calculate, it is done but totaling the number of story points of fully completed user stories from the sprint backlog. So if a current sprint included 4 user stories: 2 with 8 story points each, one with 3 story points and one with 32 story points. and by the end of the sprint the 32 one was not fully done the velocity calculation will be: 8+8+3=19 Note: the 32 story points are not part of the velocity calculation as this user story was not completed. What Velocity is used for? The v
