Sauce Labs and CI/CD – Adding Sauce to Your Pipeline

In the bad old days of software development, developers and testers were placed on different teams and often siloed. This created frustration and long feedback loops as developers "threw" builds and features "over the wall" to testers on a different team. With the advent of modern software development practices, this is fortunately changing; testers and developers are working collaboratively, [...]

Practical Tips for Getting More out of CI/CD Test Automation

More may not always be better. But in the world of test automation, it is. If you’re already automating some of your software tests, you likely want to reap even more from test automation. If that describes you, keep reading. This post discusses various strategies for getting more out of automated testing — including but not limited to automating more tests.

Fast Management of Environments Fast-moving teams can’t wait to get environments for builds and testing in place, nor can they wait for already overloaded DBAs to manually inject data or schema changes. This need for speed requires changes to how [...]

You Can't Do CI/CD Without Automated Testing
Posted by Chris Tozzi in Continuous DeliveryContinuous Integration

If you ask most DevOps experts what goes into a Continuous Integration or Continuous Delivery chain, they’ll mention components like CI servers and code repositories. They’re less likely to discuss automated testing tools, despite the fact that automated testing is just as crucial in order to achieve complete CI/CD. Below, I explain just how important automated testing is for a CI/CD [...]

Posted by Łukasz Rosłonek in Continuous DeliverySoftware Development & Testing

In today’s constantly changing market, continuous delivery is one of the most popular engineering approaches: most companies claim they work according to CD rules, or at least don’t say out loud they don’t. Popularization of this methodology comes from its main idea: an engineering process based on short, repetitive iterations, where every iteration ends with delivering user [...]
