We now know that a large number of testing activities are no longer separate and are part of the continuous delivery value stream. The role of testing has evolved from ‘necessary evil’ to that of ‘gate keeper’ and ‘progress controller’ in Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. To get the most out of what testing can deliver to your continuous delivery value stream there are key decisions which you need to get right. These include decisions around product architecture, value stream definition and the nature of the tests themselves. This talk is focussed on finally merging the ‘right’ testing activities into their rightful place in the Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery space.
