DevOps & Testing

Aligning Process, Tools, and Culture for Continuous Testing Prior Year Content

In a DevOps approach, extending agile and lean practices—including testing—across the development process is key to continuously bringing high-quality software to the consumer. Since typically one-third of the delivery lifecycle is testing, there is no continuous delivery without continuous testing. So with such a focus on testing, why do testers continue to feel overlooked? Why do they believe that their organization is ignoring the importance of improving testing practices and removing bottlenecks? Join Al Wagner as he shares how organizations can align the testing process, tools, and culture across the entire delivery team―programmers, testers, and operations―where all are working as one to deliver a vital product. Discover how testers can become involved earlier in the development process. Learn about emerging technologies to shift testing left and make continuous testing a reality. Leave with an understanding of how to implement change for process improvement. Be the initiator of change and increase respect for the testing profession in your organization.
