As automation knocks on the door once again, for many there is a continued fear, when will I be automated away? While manual testing will continue for the foreseeable future, it never hurts to get introduced to the concepts of what might come next as a manual tester! The world of software development and software testing continues to change, and as it does, testing and development come to meet in the contested territory of DevOps. While DevOps might employ some more technical aspects, it also is largely tool based, making it generally more friendly toward all users. In this webinar, we will be looking at some of the basics around transitioning to DevOps. Where to start, what sorts of strategies you will you use to approach your company, and how it will affect your workflow.

- Tools that work well in a pipeline environment
- Strategies for choosing what should be automated and what needs to remain manual
