Stop Maintaining Multiple Test Environments

Today, most of us struggle with non-production environments. Either the test data is not right or consistent, the dependencies are mismanaged, or “They just aren't quite like production.”  Instead of striving for simpler environments, most organizations add test environments―pre-prod, UAT, stage, QAB, and so on. And they end up spending more and more time troubleshooting and maintaining environments rather than building and learning. It does not have to be this way. Joel Tosi shares his experience working with many large organizations in paths that start with DevOps and continuous delivery yet ultimately lead to the need to simplify test environments. Using simple examples and communication, Joel explains how teams should stop pushing applications through environments but rather pull them through tests. Leave with a fresh perspective on how you can simplify your testing strategies and ultimately stop creating and maintaining separate test environments.

“Less talk, more rock” are words Joel Tosi likes to live by. Instead of telling teams what to do, he prefers to pair with organizations and teams to create meaningful products. Whether working with product owners on product learning, testing teams trying to balance automation, or developers and operations teams interested in continuous delivery, Joel enjoys rolling up his sleeves to work with the teams. Sharing his experiences as a coach, architect, developer, and manager, he is a hands-on collaborator and community builder.
