Why DevOps development depends on continuous testing

Source – techtarget.com To reap the full benefits of DevOps — quicker releases of high-quality software — successful organizations know they must introduce continuous testing throughout their software delivery process. The test phase cannot exist as an independent step at the end of a development cycle. Continuous integration and continuous delivery often spur this realization — these practices serve as the foundation for a successful DevOps approach. What IT leaders and their teams often don’t realize, however, is that the key to the proper

Continuous Delivery is Not Continuous Deployment

Source – devops.com Every once in a while, it is worth revisiting a topic that flies under most people’s radar. The differences between continuous delivery and continuous deployment is one of those topics. While those steeped in DevOps are well-aware that software can be delivered daily (or even more frequently), deployment is less frequent, and more dependent upon both development and marketing cycles. Most CI/CD tools can and do crank out “deployable” apps on a daily basis, or even each time

Does Microsoft’s message to DevOps pros oversimplify?

Source – techtarget.com Competitors such as IBM, CA and others also provide comprehensive DevOps tooling to help enterprise shops adopt DevOps to improve productivity of their developers, build products faster and enhance the quality of the software they deliver. But Microsoft is fresh in my mind because I attended the company’s Build 2018 developer conference recently in Seattle. Rub some DevOps on it It’s also fresh because I got some grief when I paid homage to one of Microsoft’s emerging star speaker’s use of the slogan “rub

Software development slow because ‘Most of our ideas suck’

Source – theregister.co.uk If you want a vision of the future of software creation, imagine a boot process spinning up a server, forever. Speaking at Continuous Lifecycle London* on Wednesday, Mike Roberts, co-founder of consultancy Symphonia Cloud, employed less Orwellian terminology for tomorrow: continuous experimentation. Perhaps you’ve heard of continuous delivery, the trending software engineering practice that aims to accelerate development cycles while making them simultaneously speedy and boring. Continuous experimentation takes that a step further by reducing development cycles to

Attaining Continuous Testing in DevOps through a Templated Approach

Source – devops.com The continuous demand market for flawless applications is being addressed through advanced software development techniques along with continuous delivery. As such, many organizations adopted the shift-left approach and agile best practices—which suggests the motto, “test early, test often,”—through which they get to imbibe QA practices and testing early in the software development pipeline. That also includes continuous testing for many organizations. Continuous Testing in DevOps Continuous testing today is the most preferred practice by leading software companies. Continuous

DevOps or Agile: Which do software developers prefer?

Source – itweb.co.za While Agile is by far the most popular software development methodology, high-performing software development teams are more likely to have a DevOps culture. That was one of the findings of the Gitlab Global Developer Survey which took place towards the end of 2017. Of the 5 300 software professionals from around the world who participated in the survey, about 1.5% were from Africa. The majority of respondents were from Europe (46%) and North America (36%). According to the Gitlab 2018 Global Developer Report,

What Are the Right Metrics for DevOps?

Source – itbusinessedge.com DevOps is not merely a technology upgrade but a change to business cultures, processes and models. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that few organizations have a handle as to exactly what makes a successful transition. One of the biggest mistakes is thinking that traditional performance metrics can give you an idea of what is working, and what isn’t, in a DevOps environment. While it is true that things like resource utilization, network traffic patterns, storage consumption
