Integrating Automated Testing into DevOps
In many organizations, agile development processes are driving the pursuit of faster software releases, which has spawned a set of new practices—DevOps. DevOps stresses communications and integration between development and operations, including rapid deployment, continuous integration, and continuous delivery. Because DevOps practices require confidence that changes made to the code base will function as expected, automated testing is essential. Join Jeffery Payne as he discusses the unique challenges associated with integrating automated testing into continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) environments. Learn the internals of how CI/CD works, appropriate tooling, and test integration points. Find out how to integrate your existing test automation frameworks into a fast release, DevOps environment. Take back a roadmap for integrating test automation with continuous integration and delivery.
