Companies that release multiple times a day typically financially outperform companies that don’t. Moving from monthly or weekly deployments to deploying multiple times a day requires an introduction of new technical practices and the concept of the deployment pipeline. Without any changes to the testing techniques used and the stages they are applied within the pipeline, testing quickly becomes a bottleneck and a major frustration. The knee jerk reaction to this situation to remove skilled testers and just use “Automated tests”.
Testers still have a place in deployment pipelines and in this interactive workshop, we will be using games to introduce the concepts of small frequent deployments, learn why tester practices may create a bottleneck in the deployment pipeline, and what changes you can make to avoid these blockages. The exercises run within the sessions are designed to be taken back to the office to help with coaching your co-workers.
