Why Testing in DevOps is Broken (and How to Fix It)

Presented by: 

More teams are adopting DevOps practices, however, they’re not always built with quality at the core. Teams have no choice but to build a testing strategy as they go, rather than designing the culture, processes, and tools they need upfront to create an excellent customer experience. In this discussion, Darrel will share relevant data from mabl’s 2020 Testing in DevOps Survey of over 1,000+ testers and developers. Learn how to apply QA best practices to every phase of application development, and how to reap the full benefits of DevOps to increase test coverage, yielding an ROI you can’t ignore.

  • Review data from a survey of over 1,000 testers, developers, and leaders on how DevOps, CI/CD, and cloud adoption is impacting quality 
  • Impact of testing practices on release confidence and customer satisfaction
  • Best practices for automating tests so your team can thrive in a DevOps world
