The world of DevOps is evolving and innovating at an incredible rate. Let’s be honest, for a tester it can be horrifying. Your entire tech stack can be suddenly swapped out overnight, and when encountering an issue it’s hard to tell where in that tech stack lies the problem. Even worse, with so many moving parts, it can be near impossible to reproduce the exact conditions from production in your test environment.
However, the curious and adventurous tester is always looking for an edge, always exploring new approaches to learn more about their system under test with the hopes of discovering new information. Maybe this tidal wave of tech infusion can be used for good? And yes, by this I mean OUR good.
Wednesday masterclass: DevOps for Testers from A to Z (Part 2): System Testing in a DevOps World
Presenter: Joe Lopez
As most teams in a DevOps world focus on solidifying and ramping up quality on their applications within their piece of the system; there should be a focus on how the system functions to ensure end to end flows and overall user/system requirements.
The workshop will focus on various techniques and tools that can be used to apply DevOps principles and techniques to system or end to end testing.
