Put your TestOps shoes on! Improving Quality by Process Automation

Automate everything! That’s the most suitable description of DevOps culture. The culture that quickly created job position with the same name. Position, mostly focused on broadly defined automation, leading to fast product delivery. And the division was pretty simple: DevOps = Process automation, QA = Test automation. But is it the right approach? What about (still more and more) popular “(Dev)TestOps” term?

Classical testers are now also very often responsible for set-up and maintenance of the major part of Continuous Integration or Continuous Delivery environment (especially test automation part). The main problem from the business perspective is, like always, time! E.g. many start-up and companies in a phase of early, dynamic growth cannot afford to waste too much time on test automation. How to speed up the delivery process in that cas? How to quickly generate a valuable increment? He will show you how to improve and speed up testing and delivery process by clever automation in 3 steps:

1. Automation supporting manual regression testing activities

    One Click test environment setup
    Preparing fully readable and executable test cycles and test cases
    Ensuring that unchanged component is not double-checked or unnecessarily tested

2. Automation maintaining project workflow, transitions, and statuses

    Recognizing when an issue is QA ready vs. when it is dev ready
    Avoiding (very!) common misunderstanding regarding testable issues
    Assuring that functionalities have been released without reading documentation and changelogs

3. Automation enhancing bug catching and reporting during testing or normal application usage

    Comprehensive incorporation of all crashes with bug reporting system
    Immediate notification based on priority and severity threshold level
    Automatic preparation and update of reported bugs, including necessary statistics
