Just when we, as testers, got a handle on what Agile means for us, the landscape changed yet again to a DevOps culture. Words like continuous integration (CI), continuous deployment (CD), and pipelines are now ones we’re hearing on a daily basis. As a tester, I’ll admit, I had no clue of what these words meant, and how was I to change the way I tested to fit within this DevOps culture.
In this presentation, Orlando will explore the following questions, outline the pros and cons of each buying and building, and provide key strategy and valuable tips to help enterprise mobility teams make the right decision when incorporating a mobile device cloud into their mobile app development and testing processes.
Agile Development and Continuous Delivery are rapidly becoming the de facto standard for software development. The key business driver behind these initiatives: delivering new functionality to your customers faster. This is easy to state in theory but much harder to achieve in practice: the level of quality of your services must be maintained! If your system goes down once a week every week, your customers are unlikely to be happy.
Are you tired of spending endless hours maintaining your automated test cases? Do you dread looking at test automation reports because of the tedious tweaks you know you’ll need to make from the latest updates from dev? Has your team lost its faith in test automation?
The ultimate goal of a DevOps approach is to deliver high-quality features to your customers at the pace they need. High performing DevOps shops point to continuous testing and test automation as key contributors to their success.
The world of testing is always evolving – software development life-cycles, delivery models and team culture. We see this evolution affecting the way teams are constructed, what skill-sets are required, and the ownership of quality within the organization.
