I recently caught up with Gema Cullen, Integration Test Specialist from IntegrationWorks, to discuss what does it mean to be a tester in a world of DevOps?
DevOps is designed to enable a culture where development and operations come together to build, test and deploy applications to reduce overall deployment time. As the DevOps movement gathers pace, some may conclude that it makes Quality Assurance obsolete.
Quote from Atlassian
Gemma talks about the issues with the current practices of DevOps which overlook quality assurance. Some teams try to bury QA into themes like continuous development, continuous integration and continuous delivery. You may think that the way to integrate testing in your CI/CD pipeline is through test automation.
Watch the video and hear Gemma talk about manual testing and how to integrate testing in your project correctly. Listen to how to leverage the concept of pair programming and apply it to pair programming/testing. Someone needs to coin a new term for this practice.
