As companies realize the need for rapid application development, they are embracing DevOps methodologies. But implementing DevOps practices without establishing a culture of quality often results in lower quality software or a poor customer experience, which impacts the business bottom line.
Join Joshua Eastman of Experis as he shares proven approaches for ensuring quality and testing throughout the software development and delivery pipeline, while still maintaining agility and speed. Josh presents a roadmap for building quality into the fabric of DevOps and fostering a quality-driven mindset, discusses the importance of efficient testing feedback mechanisms, and then suggests a spectrum of off-the-shelf tools such as Docker, Selenium, and AppDynamics that can be used to infuse continuous quality throughout the software delivery pipeline. Leave this session with ideas, approaches, and tools to help shift an organization’s culture, process, and technology toward quality.
