July 2019 Webinar:

A developer pair on your team has coded and tested a new story, created a pull request and committed their changes to the source code repository. What all has to happen for those changes to be released in production? Can you draw a diagram of all the steps involved – automated or manual?

Continuous delivery and deployment are the standard many teams aspire to achieve. To be confident enough to deploy new changes to production frequently, they need to build infrastructure, fast feedback loops, and figure out how to fit in manual steps like exploratory testing. Success with continuous delivery requires a healthy quality and DevOps culture.

In this webinar, Lisa Crispin will share some of the techniques she and Ashley Hunsberger will include in their CAST 2019 tutorial on “The Whole Team Approach to Continuous Delivery”. The webinar will include terminology to help testers communicate with operations specialists and other team members. Lisa will introduce ways to visualize your deployment pipeline together with your team to start shortening feedback loops and mitigating risks. She’ll show how Ashley’s Test Suite Canvas to guide team conversations about what questions each stage of your pipeline needs to answer. Get some tips on fitting testing into our continuous world.

Learning outcomes:

  • The language of continuous delivery and DevOps
  • Using the Test Suite Canvas to improve automated test suites
  • How to visualize the flow of each new change from the developers’ workstation to production and find ways to shorten those feedback loops

Join us on Wednesday, July 10th at 9:00am PST to learn more!
