Put your TestOps shoes on

Automate everything! That’s the most suitable description of DevOps culture. The culture that quickly created job position with the same name. Position, 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? And finally, what if there is not enough time for complex test automation (common start-up case)?

I’ll show how to improve and speed up testing by process automation in 3 steps:

1. Automation supporting manual regression testing activities.
2. Automation maintaining project workflow, transitions, and statuses.
3. Automation enhancing bug catching and reporting during testing or normal application usage.

All of that in the context of 5 good (TestOps’) friends: Test Management Tool (Zephyr), Project Management Tool (Jira), Crash/Log Reporting System (Crashlytics), Communication/Notifications Channel (Slack) and Continuous Integration Tool (Jenkins).
