Integrating Automated Testing into DevOps

Business demands and agile development processes are driving the pursuit of faster software releases, spawning a set of new practices called DevOps. At the forefront of the DevOps movement are rapid deployment, continuous integration, and continuous delivery—all of which require a high level of test automation across the application lifecycle. Join Jeffery Payne as he discusses the unique challenges associated with integrating automated testing into continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) environments. Learn how CI/CD works, appropriate tooling, and test integration points. Find out how to integrate your existing test automation frameworks into a fast release, DevOps environment. In addition to technology issues, Jeffery covers another key to DevOps success: the integration of development, testing, and operations processes—and people—with deep and honest communications among teams. Leave with a roadmap for integrating test automation with continuous integration and delivery so that every stakeholder has strong confidence that changes made to the code base will function as expected.
