Azure Builds & Azure Pipelines, part of the Azure DevOps Services suite, provide a Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment/Delivery framework that you can get started with right away. This article looks at different approaches for handling Continuous Deployment across multiple environments so that you ensure a successful journey towards Continuous Delivery.
User Acceptance Testing is a vital but often overlooked aspect of software development. It can seem redundant, and no one wants to hear about software bugs from a frantic email from an end user. But developers and end users may not always have the same understanding of the requirements, and it’s better to know about any potential issues or misalignments before the software goes live rather than afterward.
In this article, I cover some User Acceptance Testing best practices to ensure your application is thoroughly tested, bugs get resolved before launch, and clients are successful and happy.
Workflows are vital for any Agile team. They help automate repeatable processes to make it easier for people to collaborate with more efficiency and fewer errors. Though they may sound like a magic bullet for productive team collaboration, they aren’t foolproof.
Here are four common problems that inhibit JIRA workflow agility and success. Learn to recognize them so you can prevent inefficiencies and ensure your workflows are always advancing organizational growth and sustainability.
Waterfall methodology emerged from the industrial world of assembly lines and specializations. With few known alternatives, the methodology was also applied to software development. Over time, however, frustrations from its many disadvantages, such as the inability to go back and change something or the length of time to get a working prototype up and running, led developers to lean toward more agile processes.
Testing has always been an important stage of the software development lifecycle. Teams that do it well clearly understand the benefits and are often the strongest advocates for the practice. Unit tests should be a given in any web application’s code base. Automated functional testing takes this a step further and allows application testing on the user-interface level, which adds another layer of protection that helps catch mistakes before they reach production.
In this article, you’ll learn more about how cloud-based automation testing tools help software development teams reduce costs, create higher code quality, and increase velocity so they can move forward quickly.
