Software testing is an essential part of any software development process to make sure everything works as expected. This concept is nothing new. However, what is the protocol for testing an application that is already in production? New features are requested, bugs are reported — your team gets to work putting together new code and finding fixes. The next question is, “How thoroughly do we need to test this new code?” Sure, if we want to be really cautious we can test the entire application from ground up, but isn’t that level of extreme caution time-consuming, expensive and unnecessary? The answer might surprise you. What is Regression Testing? We’ll come back to the answer in a moment. First, let’s look at how regression testing is defined. Regression testing is a type of software testing which verifies that software which was previously developed and tested sti... (more)

We left off part 1 of the intervi... (more)

Test Environment Management | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #ContinuousTesting

Why Treating Test Management and Test Environment Management Separately Is Killing Your Efficiency By Alon Inditzky Imagine that you have hundreds of development, testing, and operations teams spread across the globe that rely on each other to execute software testing. You have 245 test environments and you release to pre-production several times a day and deploy to production once a week. How do you manage all the software tests, test data, and test environments? Traditionally, the answer would be to fill out spreadsheets or siloed tools, send emails, and hope that everything an... (more)
