Talk: A Holistic Approach to Testing in Continuous Delivery

It’s not uncommon for teams moving towards continuous delivery to face a growing backlog of customer-reported bugs. It’s a challenge to maintain the cadence of frequent deployments. If a team has testers, they’re often expected to continue to do all the testing activities, without any thought as to how those fit into continuous delivery (CD) or continuous deployment (also CD). Teams often struggle with insufficient automated test coverage. Testing specialists spend their time doing manual regression testing, and lack time for adequate exploratory testing. That opens doors for serious production issues!
In this session, Lisa shares her experiences with striving to deploy smaller changes more frequently. The challenges faced by her teams are common ones, and they came up with some useful experiments to move towards successful CD. Lisa will introduce some techniques to consider trying, including:
· Visualizing deployment pipelines to shorten feedback loops and fit in testing activities
· Using a test suite canvas to determine the minimum automate test
· Ways to analyze risks and determine next steps to mitigate them
· Ways testing specialists contribute to team success
