Continuous Testing - The New Normal
Some notions of continuous testing (CT) have been applied in software development methodologies for a while but it was never called by that term. Another term sometimes used for CT is parallel testing. While some have mastered CT, most of us struggle with how to transform our current testing approaches to CT approaches and align them with evolving development methodologies. Join Tom Wissink as he discusses current examples of CT implementations across different software development methodologies (agile, waterfall, incremental) and describes where parallel or CT type testing yields the best benefits. Arguably the most challenging methodology that demands CT testing is DevOps. DevOps requires all phases of testing to be done quickly and in parallel with the development process and some contend that testing continues into actual operations. Leave this session with a better understanding of CT, and how this approach can be best leveraged in your development environment.
