Software Testing in Continuous Integration

As DevOps is now a new important approach for rapid software delivery, how do you perform software testing in this context of reduced cycle times. In his article, Gopinath C H explains how to perform testing in continuous integration and continuous deployment workflows, providing examples based on the Visual Studio 2015 and Team Foundation Server tools.
