TUTORIAL: A Whole Team Approach to Testing in Continuous Delivery (1st half)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Many testers today find themselves on teams who decide to adopt continuous delivery and
DevOps practices, but leave responsibility for all testing activities to the testers. The end result
is often more testing to do, less time to do it, and more stress for testers!

To succeed with continuous delivery, the whole delivery team needs to take responsibility for
the necessary continuous testing. We need more than infrastructure to get small changes out
frequently. We need confidence that those changes won’t cause customer pain, we need quick
feedback to learn about the impact of those changes.

In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to visualize their deployment pipeline.
You’ll practice using a test suite canvas to discuss what questions each stage in your pipeline
needs to answer, and understand the value each step provides. You’ll work in groups to come
up with new experiments to help shorten feedback cycles, make sure all essential types of
testing – not only automated ones - are done continually, and fit testing into the continuous
world.

Whether your tests take minutes or days, and whether your deploys happen hourly or quarterly,
you’ll discover benefits. You’ll participate in a simulation to visualize your team’s current path to
production and uncover risks to both your product and your deployment process. No laptops
required, just bring your curiosity.

Learning outcomes:
* How to use the test suite canvas to design a pipeline that gives your team confidence to
release frequently
* How to analyze pipelines from different perspectives to create shorter feedback loops
and mitigate risks
* Ways your team can design experiments to address the many challenges of testing in a
continuous world
