Kanban features some similarities to Scrum. In both frameworks, visualizing the active tasks (e.g., on a public whiteboard) provides transparency of content and progress of tasks. Tasks not yet scheduled are waiting in a backlog and moved onto the Kanban board as soon as there is new space (production capacity) available. Iterations or sprints are optional in Kanban. The Kanban process allows releasing its deliverables item by item, rather than as part of a release. Timeboxing as a synchronizing mechanism, therefore, is optional, unlike in Scrum, which synchronizes all tasks within a sprint.

Testing through the cloud expands the reach of testing across geographical locations, with potentially limitless testing capability. With all these benefits come some additional challenges. From the testing point of view, what are these challenges? Leave your comment under this topic
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with their internal states or the external environment. According to Gartner, Inc. The Internet of Things (IoT), which excludes PCs, tablets and smartphones, will grow to 26 billion units installed in 2020 representing an almost 30-fold increase from 0.9 billion in 2009. Due to complexity this is challenging for testing point of view.
There are lots of interconnected systems that are not under your control. As a tester, what is your Testing Strategy for testing in IoT? How to test there?
