Connecting Manual Testers to the DevOps Era
June 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am MDTFREE
The Shift Left To DevOps
With the growing pressure to introduce new software versions and constant updates, release cycles have shortened significantly in the last decade and required development teams to adapt to new work processes.
The Agile Effect on Organizational Practices
Since development is the core activity of any software company, any change to its work methodology requires a re-calibration of the all the touchpoints within the organization.
Why Testing Was Left Behind During the Shift to Agile
Agile is a very self-centered methodology that sees the development team alone. With this, no effort was given to modernize and adapt the testing part of the equation. Manual testing teams were all of a sudden faced with an impossible task – catching up to today’s development with yesterday’s tools.
How Testers Can Adapt and Become Integral Part of DevOps
Automation has emerged as the main method but it brings with it a new set of challenges: planning and building an automation framework, revising work processes, training testers how to code and a heavy maintenance burden.
The next step in test automation is to take the code out of the equation – codeless automation is relieving testing teams from the continuous effort and cost of chasing after the automation code.
