Test Strategies for Continuous Delivery Prior Year Content

Classic testing methods and tools can’t keep pace with agile development practices and emerging continuous delivery models. Melvin Laguren describes how Macy's Ecommerce Merchant System uses a variety of tools to support its rapid delivery pipeline. A code coverage tool such as Karma determines if they need additional tests or if the existing tests provide satisfactory coverage. Using data analysis tools such as Code Maat with source code control, they have a robust approach to improve the code review process and easily identify necessary file changes to prevent issues in production. By incorporating these two tools, Melvin’s team members get real-time informative feedback that helps them make better testing decisions within their continuous delivery pipeline. Testers, developers, and all stakeholders have easy access to a dashboard reporting tool that showcases findings from unit, functional, and performance testing. Join Melvin to explore new tools and practices you can implement to smooth the road to continuous delivery in your systems.
