This video presents the impact of End-To-End Testing upon a large scale agile project within the UK government, covering the historical motivation for End-To-End Testing so common to IT and how it has hindered team adoption of Continuous Delivery.
The creation of a TestOps infrastructure is a demanding task. TestOps (or test operations) refers to the discipline of managing the operational aspects of testing within the software delivery lifecycle. In this article, we focus on theoretical and technical aspects, and discuss some case studies to consider.
Angel Rivera of CircleCI discusses common pain points in properly securing applications, CI/CD pipelines and protecting sensitive access gates to integration targets. You will learn strategies to secure their applications, sensitive data and DevOps pipeline integration points.
As a software developer, you know that one of the critical period in a project is when you try to make integrate your code in the overall application and push it towards the final user. It is sometimes a long process that you would like to accelerate so that you could obtain a quicker feedback on the quality of your code.
Running automated tests is a good thing for software quality assurance. Now you have to understand the results of the current test run. You could also be interested to see how your tests results evolve over time. To achieve these goals, you need a tool to produce meaningful tests reports and there are some open source tools to help you do this.
DevOps is based on continuous delivery and anything that breaks the continuity is a bottleneck. While Agile and DevOps have become common terms in Development and Testing organizations, manual build and deployment processes are still causing problems along with integration and testing.
One of the main trends in software development is to deliver software more quickly. DevOps, continuous delivery or continuous integration are some of the approaches that have been promoted recently to achieve this goal. In their article “DevOps Advantages for Testing”, Gene Gotimer and Thomas Stiehm discusses the advantages that these approaches could provide to software testing and software quality.
