DevOps: Test Alone

Th1     Start Time : 09:45     End Time : 10:30

Talk Abstract:

As in the movie HomeAlone, it seems that Dev and Ops have gone on a journey and forgot to take testing/QA with them. We hear big companies tell stories that they have no more testers, all testing is done in production, everything is fully automated by dev, etc. The actual truth lies somewhere in between these statements!

For most DevOps implementations, QA is actually crucial in order to succeed. DevOps however has a dramatic impact on the way we do QA! In this session, I will give you some concrete examples and tips on how we as QA engineers can leverage some of the DevOps principles for our job. I will also highlight what I believe are the necessary changes QA engineers will need to go thru in order to survive in this new world.

Key Takeaways:

  1. QA is not dead, it is evolving to a higher consciousness
  2. We will become more and more a supportive function that needs to enable dev teams to release software faster with more quality.
  3. Tools and techniques used in DevOps can enrich our testing activities, take benefit of these!
