  • DevOps on the Microsoft Stack with Continuous Testing

    What is DevOps? Is DevOps the new Agile? Is DevOps just automation? Is DevOps just developers and operations meeting over pizza? It is a challenge to describe the DevOps culture, but at a high level it involves people, processes, and products (in this order). It requires development, testing, operations, business, and other teams to work together, efficiently, to deliver better and faster results to customers. This session covers the fundamentals of DevOps and helps you understand how they map to DevOps practices and how they can be implemented by a variety of products and tools. DevOps integrates development teams and operations teams in order to improve collaboration, productivity, quality, and be more responsive to business needs. This is accomplished by automating infrastructure, automating workflows, and continuously measuring application performance.

  • Effective Testing and Automation with Microsoft Tools

    Modern ALM requires integrated toolsets to manage software projects, from planning and development through testing and deployment with end-to-end traceability. Microsoft’s tools provide this toolset, a web-based interface, and features like test planning, creation, execution, and results. Many test options are supported including unit, manual, automated/UI, exploratory, and performance testing. Agile development demands frequent changes not only to applications but also to testing environments, so these integrated tools combine ALM, testing, and DevOps practices for traceability and consistency. See how you can use these tools to increase your efficiency and agility for on-premises, cloud, or cross-platform scenarios.

    •   Drive quality and collaboration throughout the development process.
      
    •   Streamline quality with integrated test case management, manual and exploratory testing tools.
      
    •   Use Continuous delivery to ship regularly and predictably on any platform.
