Making sure it works – testing the new London.gov.uk | London City Hall

Testing software and websites is a challenge. We need to ensure that the final product is fit for purpose, and as good as it can possibly be. We must also understand it can never be totally free of bugs. We do lots of different types of testing from User Acceptance Testing (UAT) to performance and accessibility testing. All of this is essential to make sure that the final website does everything it’s supposed to do.

Another important aspect of testing the website as it develops is ‘usability testing’ where we ask invite end users to test new designs or functionality of the website. We’ll be writing more about this part of testing in a future blog post.
