Testing without borders

Track 1
2:25 PM - 3:10 PM

Using continuous delivery (CD) as a way to bring software solutions to clients seems to be one of the best ways to do so. Ability to shorten the availability of a feature a client wants from months to days or even hours is too tempting not to be sought after. At the same time this paradigm comes with its own challenges toward how we organize and manage the development process of a software solution. One of them is the need to automate every element of the development cycle in a meaningfull way that will enable seamless streaming of changes from code to a live production system as fast as possible. Being fast, however, means nothing if we are not able to confirm it is working properly and here ability to test and validate through automation is key to a successfull CD process. This presentation will focus on describing both the context of application and the implementation of a simple, portable and scalable solution for CD test automation. While the solution is implemented within our company it is based on free, proven and open source tools arranged in a way that enables its application everywhere without limitations. Most probably the session will include short illustration/demo.
