All You Need to Know About Testing in the DevOps World

Have you ever wondered what testing looks like in DevOps? A new book called “A Practical Guide to Testing in DevOps” written by Katrina Clokie is now available on leanpub.

As organisations shift to a culture of intense collaboration and rapid delivery, the expectations on testers are changing. What does testing look like in an environment with automated build and deployment pipelines? How does appetite for risk change once a product can be tested in production? Who should testers look to connect with across the organisation and how can they work together effectively to deliver quality software?

This book offers direction and advice relevant to anyone involved in testing in a DevOps environment.
