Today's high performance DevOps teams, which continuously deliver new versions of their software products, are facing serious challenges related to software quality. Quality (aka less testing) is usually the first thing teams are willing to sacrifice when being under pressure to deliver quickly and frequently. What they need is an optimal balance between automated and manual testing practices that will save them from pushing sloppy features into production. The session will start with a discussion about agile testing strategies "shift left" and "shift right" according to the current best practices in DevOps. We will explain why development teams don't stand a chance to sustainably deliver a continuous stream of new features without the safety net of automated regression tests covering all essential usage scenarios, as well as why both specified and exploratory manual testing is still welcome. Then, in a series of demonstrations on the Visual Studio Team Services/Team Foundation Server platform, we will show how you can organize your testing process to start testing as soon as a new line of code is written, integrate automated tests in your build and release management pipeline and finish with testing in production. Join us in this session and get to know the tools and practices that will help how you make the quality of your software products even better.
